An amazing story this. Two home brewers (Kristian Klarup Keller and Mikkel Borg Bjergsø) who in their first year of commercial brewing were not only considered the best Danish brewery in 2007 by the Danish Beer Enthusiasts Association (11,000 members), but also the 5th best brewery in the world by RateBeer.
Today Mikkeller is rated as the second best Danish brewery, beaten by 0.2% of the vote and the world’s 6th best brewery. Only one (Mikkel Borg Bjergsø) of the original two blokes remains, with Kristian Klarup Keller taking up an opportunity as an editor with music magazine Soundvenue.
The style of beer could only be considered as extreme and adventurous. The philosophy involves breaking all the rules with no holds barred brewing. A strong association with the American craft beer industry shows in the liberal use of hops and malt and high alcohol content. Mikkeller brews beer on site at such exaulted brewers as Three Floyds(Indiana USA), De Proef Brouwerij (Belgium), Stone Brewing Company (California, USA) and Nøgne Ø, Grimstad, Norway.
Limited stock of 13 Mikkeller beers are now available at Purvis Cellars.
