Double gold in San Francisco World Spirits Competition

We took our favorite imperial stout, distilled it to beer brandy, barrel aged it in small barrels and ended up with a very distinct liquor that not only links directly to the beer, but also serve an overwhelming smooth finish. We've been sitting on this for a while now, knowing we were on to something good, but having the judges of the San Francisco World Spirits Competition awarding our Black Rum Cask not just gold, but double gold, is something that makes us very proud. They also decided our[...]

Mikkeller Bar STHLM - Opening Recap

        The day we all had been waiting for for a long time finally arrived; the opening of a Stockholm bar. Thirsty people started lining up long before and it did not take many minutes to fill the place up once the doors were open. Thanks to the adjacent Bierhaus lending us one of their bars there was actually room for everyone. The free beers were quickly finished and some real action could begin. Through the day and night we saw many new and old friends and a lot of awesome beers were[...]

Tasting Panel

Mikkeller - Faro Reddish brown hazy pour with a potent fluffy white head. The nose is fruity in a heavy acidic and citric way, topped with a fine sweetness as from dried fruits like apricots and prunes. You will also find a blooming freshness like in elderflowers. The mouthfeel is creamy with a pretty low carbonation. The cream-white foam creates a smooth feeling like in an Italian Asti - just not as dry. This is a very sweet beer - and surprisingly sweet compared to the impression you get in[...]

Mikkeller & The Earl of Essex

Yesterday Mikkeller brewed a beer along with the Earl of Essex at Danbury Street, London. We had planned to brew an American IPA with a very simple malt base, an American ale yeast and a crazy amount of American hops. 7% alcohol, and an IBU far above what is normally brewed in the London area. I feel pretty sure that this beer will have the trademark hoppiness of a Mikkeller beer. If you drop by Earl of Essex in a month's time, make sure to taste the to this date strongest beer brewed on the[...]

Mikkeller & Partizan Brewing

Yesterday I brewed a big strong Quad with Partizan Brewing. Andy did all the work, but before the beer was finished, I poured a bottle Monks Brew in the boiler. It is an old tradition here in Mikkeller, and although ther has been a standstill since Mikkel first time threw a bottle of Black in the boiler at Three Floyds for approximately four years ago, the tradition resumed yesterday right here in London. When the beer has fermented, it will sit in a brandy barrel for about six months before it[...]

Mikkeller loves Berlin

We often go to Berlin, but we find it a challenge to find good craft beer. We don't find that fair, so we have decided to bring our own beers and tenders to the city that we like so much. Not only are we bringing our own, we are bringing enough for everybody. Finding a location for all this goodness wasn't really difficult - we just asked our long time friends at Berlins coolest hotel "The Michelberger" if we could do it at their place? They said yes - so now we are packing the Mikkeller truck[...]
