Mikkeller is a microbrewery founded in 2006 in Copenhagen, Denmark that is based on the so-called "phantom" or "gypsy" ethos; that is, the company does not operate as an official brewery and, instead, collaborates with other brewers to produce their recipes or experimental one-off brews. The brewery was founded by two home brewers: Mikkel Borg Bjergsø, a high school teacher, and journalist Kristian Klarup Keller. Both sought to introduce their home-brewed beer to the public and to "challenge beer friends with intense new tastes", drawing inspiration from the American breweries that "aren't afraid to play and break all the rules".
A base Session IPA barrel aged in Cherry Wine barrels with the addition of Brettanomyces yeast.
Style: Session IPA
A collaboration beer between Mikkeller and Against the Grain Brewery. Simply a Blood Orange Pilsner. Brewed with German Pilsner and munich malts, hopped with American Citra, Columbus, Amarillo and Czech Saaz and fermented with Danish lager yeast. Then we added the zest and juice from a shit-ton of blood oranges. The result is a refreshingly tart lager, with big citrus aroma worthy of even the hippest of Danish drinkers.
Style: Lager (with Blood Orange!)
Aromas of malt, spices and yeasty caramel combine with hints of raisins and juicy fruit notes from the barrels. The palate offers notes of chocolate, brown bread and finishes with notes of leather and earth.
Style: Belgian Ale
