Mikkeller Tap Takeover March 20th

19 March 2013 No Comment

Join us at the pub on Wednesday, March 20th at 6 p.m. when we host a tap takeover to welcome the Danish brewery Mikkeller to the great state of Alabama!

Mikkeller got its start several years ago when childhood friends Mikkel Borg Bjergsø and Kristian Keller experimented with homebrew recipes in the kitchens of their Copenhagen homes.  The hobby quickly turned into obsession after they won several homebrew contests, and the two friends started brewing their beers on a larger scale at a local Danish microbrewery.  Their big break came in 2006 when their Beer Geek Breakfast, an Oatmeal Stout infused with French press coffee, was voted the number one stout in the world by Ratebeer.com.  This honor gained Mikkeller much international attention, and the rest is history.  The interesting thing about Mikkeller is that they do not have a physical brewery.  They are considered a gypsy brewery because they brew their beers at various host breweries in locations such as Denmark, Norway, Belgium, the United Kingdom and the United States.  Mikkeller is now one of the most recognized names among international craft brewers, and they continue to push the boundaries of craft beer with the use of experimental and unexpected ingredients.

For our very special tap takeover on March 20th, we will be pouring a wide variety of Mikkeller offerings from the tap as well as from the bottle.  We will also be featuring three collaboration offerings from To Øl, another Danish gypsy brewery, and it just so happens that two of those collaborations are with Mikkeller.  Here is the full beer menu for this event:

Mikkeller Draught Offerings

  •  Beer Hop Breakfast
  • Centennial Single Hop IPA
  • It’s Alive! – White Wine Barrel Aged Wild Ale
  • Tiger Baby: Open Windows Open Hills

Mikkeller Bottled Offerings

  • Centennial Single Hop IPA
  • Sorachi Ace Single Hop IPA
  • Warrior Single Hop IPA

To Øl & Mikkeller Collaboration Bottled Offerings

  • To Øl/Omnipollo Brewmance Imperial Bourbon Barrel Aged Wild Honey Stout
  • To Øl/Mikkeller Sleep Over Coffee Imperial IPA
  • To Øl/Mikkeller Walk on Water

 

To make this event even more exciting, you will receive a raffle ticket each time you purchase any of the above Mikkeller draughts or bottles for a chance to win one of many BRIGHT & SHINY PENNIES!  Those pennies may or may not be attached to some very rare and/or interesting objects (wink wink, shrug shrug).  Just believe us when we say you want to be one of the lucky winners.  Winners will be notified on Thursday, March 21st.

We are confident in saying we have the makings for one amazing tap takeover here, and we hope you all can make it down to the pub on Wednesday to raise a glass of Mikkeller with us in celebration of yet another fantastic brewery finding its way to Alabama!  See you then!
