We expect some of the runners to feel a bit rough this very sunday morning, so we’ve booked a Rock ‘n Roll band and a DJ to help us all get through the streets of Vesterbro. Our good friends at Sparta will make sure that everything runs (pun intended) smoothly… Oh, and we got great prizes at stake as well! The bib[...]

Tasting Panel - If We Took The Bones Out, It Wouldn’t Be Crunchy

A beer that is the result of a co-work between Mikkeller and the record company Crunchy Frog, where it is meant to play a liquid key role in a series of musical  pop-up events in Copenhagen. This is an brown ale, and it pours a reddish brown topped with an off-white head. The aroma is malty with lots of mildly roasted notes. Along with that there are dark chocolate, some leather and dry raisins and dates. It’s a pretty easy to drink beer with a rather mild mouth feel. Lots of roasted malts,[...]

Tasting Panel - Kärlek Fall/Winter 2014

The swedes are being spoiled - once again. This is one big hoppy smelling beer. It is floral with notes of grape fruit and young green chest nuts. It has quite a big mouth feel with a creamy texture. Lots of citric notes are dominating the picture with a very quiet maltyness, which makes this extremely refreshing and drinkable. This is a beer that is difficult not to like.

Tasting Panel - MAD4 / WHAT IS COOKING?

Pineapple - Apple A clear golden pilsner with a fine white head. The aroma is almost like mild perfume, with tropical fruit, marzipan and the added chamomile sticking out as an interesting feature. In the taste, the chamomile is present very heavily at first, followed by a fresh touch of green apples -leading to a mild herbal and bitter finish. A refreshing beer, that would be great on the table along with some sushi or salted cod. Refshaleøen Sour A cloudy light brown beer with an almost pink[...]

Tasting Panel - George Vs. Brian BA Ed.

George Vs. Brian aged in three different barrels - Tequila, Calvados and Cherry Wine. Calvados edition This black hard-hitting beauty is pouring thick black, leaving a fine soy colored head.The nose is very characteristic for Mikkeller’s strong stouts. It is sweet, and the barrel comes through very clear. Raw licorice, apples, honey and chocolate cookie dough with a mild salty edge are the impressions we get from the aroma. This is one heavy beer - and the mouth feel is as thick and oily as[...]

Øl & Brød

In case you haven't heard, we opened up a restaurant. It's called Øl & Brød and it's an extension of what we've always been doing: High quality products served by beer-aficionados to be savored in a distinct, minimalistic Mikkeller-esque setting. For this project we are carefully handling the holy grail of Danish food, as we step into the world of Smørrebrød (traditional Danish open-faced sandwiches) - A style of food we are all huge fans of. Why? After being frustrated with the poor beer[...]
