Hello Beer Geeks and Mikkeller Freaks, Now it is time to eat some pig. Sunday the 1st of September, Monday the 2nd of September and Tuesday the 3rd of September you can be a part of this pig event. These pigs have been treated like little princesses, they have lived a great life in a forest far from Copenhagen, and they have been drinking beers that certainly are better than the ones you drink.

One is part of a PhD project that is trying to uncover how hops evolves over time and how the different types of hops taste when you measure them on bitterness, flavor, etc. This PhD series is brewed with the same amount of hops in each brew. This means that[...]

Here are the notes on six beautiful beers worth trying. Cigar City - Maduro Brown Ale A little flat when poured - but leaves anyhow a fine cappuccino colored head. Cloudy Coca-cola colored body.
