‘Close your eyes and imagine your favourite beer in the world (or at least one of them). Imagine its aroma in your nose, imagine its taste, imagine its mouth feel. A beer you’ve had dozens, maybe hundred of times before. Would you recognize it instantly, if someone served it to you without telling you what it was? A lot of us would like to think we would, but if you’ve ever tried a blind taste test before you know how difficult it can be! Blind tasting – that is to say tasting a beer without[...]

A couple of weeks ago I went to Bristol for the first time, to attend Bristol Craft Beer Festival on behalf of Mikkeller. I was quite excited, I had never been anywhere in England apart from London, and traveling for work was also a first. Furthermore I had only heard good things about Bristol from costumers at Mikkeller Bar and I have to say, it did not disappoint! The journey ended up taking quite a bit longer than expected but I made the best of it and had a Kriek and a sandwich in Brussels[...]
October in Denmark is mostly known for grey skies and rain, but this year it will be all about Bayern. In Germany, Oktoberfest means weeks of drinking amazing beer, schlager hits, wurst, and pretzels flying through the air, so we thought to ourselves “how can we do that here in Copenhagen?” the answer was easy: by teaming up with legendary brewery Maisel, for two days of Bavarian mayhem. Every great bierfest requires a true-to-tradition Bayern bier and we’re not just serving any random one.[...]

This place truly has the most beautiful view on the mountains and the city of Zurich itself. There, surrounded by apple trees and beautiful houses, the beer people of Switzerland gathered to appreciate some[...]
