From Mikkellers Dusty Cellars

We asked the skilled Mikkeller tasting panel to go down in the dusty cellars and try some of our old treasures to see if they are still beautiful. The conclusion is - they are. 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. The aroma bares traces of wet soil and walnuts - this is authum blasting through the aroma. A mild hoppyness stands clear in[...]

A unique beer

For the celebration of the Saint Patrick's day 2013, a brewery produced a dry hopped version of their world famous Irish stout.   The brewery estimated, however, that this beer was way too bitter for the UK market, and therefore, the entire production was kicked out.   All the beer was thrown out - with the exception of a single keg. Via shady connections in Ireland we have now got our dirty hands at this keg. And we share it with everyone who comes to the opening of our new bar in Stefansgade[...]

Mikkeller in Russia part II

Today, we brewed a no bull shit IPA. simple malt base, clear and crisp yeast, and an awful lot of American hops. Malt is from Germany, water and yeast is from St. Petersburg, but the hops come from the U.S. To make sure that we got fresh hops, I had to bring it myself. So I packed 20 kg fresh hops in my suitcase before I left Denmark. That meant that I besides hops only had room for a pair of underpants and a toothbrush. But fair enough, I came neither to Russia to look good or to be[...]

As soon as we had mashed in, we drove to Vassileostrovskaya brewery to brew an Imperial Stout. As soon as it was mashed in, we drove back to the Metropole to proceed with our Trippel. And like that it went throughout the[...]

Mikkeller Spirits is travelling
