No freeze distilling needed. This beer has been barrelaged 10 times on different bourbon barrels. It took us two years to bring the imperial stout Black up from the original 18% ABV to the amazing 26,1%. How about the taste? There is a reason it is called the "Black Fist". Decant it as we suggest in the serving tips, and you will have a mindblowing experience. This beer is complex. We are releasing Black Fist tomorrow at our two Copenhagen bars.
Our great friends from Crooked Moon Tattoo have decided to do a pop up at Mikkeller & Friends on the 1. of November. Jacob and Jonas are outstanding at what they do and we are proud to have them.

Keith will be there and we have arranged some pretty crazy beers to match the event. Check out the guys here[...]

With the last days talk (http://korturl.dk/6b3) about crual treatment of Kopi Luwak producing civets it is important for us to say this: We do not use Kopi Luwak from Indonesia in Beer Geek brunch Weasel. We use the Vietnamese variety cà phê Chồn. We have been aware since we started using cà phê Chồn in 2008 that not all civet coffee world wide is produced with the best care and respect of the cats. Therefor we searched for and found one supplier of cà phê Chồn that treats the animals with[...]
Finally the new batch of Black Beer brandy has arrived. The first badge of the destilled imperial stout sold out way to quickly. The wait has been long for us, but now it is finally here. Black still comes in three versions. They have been barrelaged on three different types of 30 liter barrels (Oloroso, Rum and Bourbon). The aging time has been increased to 12 months, and the wait has been worth it. You can find Black in our bars in Copenhagen, in our webshop and in the bottleshop. Nice thing[...]

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.

Here at Mikkeller we love IPA, we love hops and in particular we love Single Hop IPA. Single Hop provides you with a unique opportunity to taste the different hop varieties isolated. Right now we have two different single hop series out. 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[...]
Copenhell - the biggest Metal Festival in Denmark - is now well over. The last long haired heads has been shook, the last maniac mosh pit has been made and the last throat breaking, growling sing a long shout out loud song has been sung.
