Denmark’s much-revered, nomadic brewer Mikkeller has launched a unique selection of beers in M&S and Majestic
Hitting shelves at the end of September 2019, Mikkeller was set up in Copenhagen in 2006 by maths and physics teacher Mikkel Borg Bjergsø who began by experimenting with hops, malt and yeast at home.
Just over ten years later, the brewer and his cutting-edge brand is now saluted within the craft beer industry for its quality, creativity, consistency and distinctive style.
The interestingly named Mikkeller beers now available in 330ml cans, priced at around £2.50 each include:
Stick a finger in the soil
Style: Pale Ale
Description: Hazy golden in colour, this Pale Ale offers a beautiful fruity aroma with citrus fruits and tropical coming to the fore and following right through to the dry, bitter finish.
Hair in the mailbox
Style: India Pale Ale
Description: Bright and hoppy IPA with tropical citrus fruit aromas on the nose and a plate bursting with tangy orange and pineapple plus warm pine notes.
Wood will fall down
Style: Passionfruit Berliner Weisse
Description: A crisp passion fruit Berliner Weisse with passionfruit, lemon and light bready notes on the nose and palate packed once again with passionfruit but with an acidic backbone and a bright and funky finish.
I don't have red shrimp
Description: A crisp and easy drinking Pilsner with an aroma of fruit and zesty hops. The palate is a blend of orange peel and hay with a floral, slightly bitter finish.
Mikkel Borg Bjergsø is the world’s most famous and successful nomadic brewer who has built the brand without a brewery but by travelling the world and renting space at other breweries in order to release his unique beers. With specialist Mikkeller beer bottle shops and bars around the world, the award-winning brand has released over 800 beers since its inception with the brews now available in 40 countries.
The first Mikkeller bar is set to open in Shoreditch, London in October which is a collaboration with eighties pop icon Rick Astley.
