NOMA & Mikkeller

A few years ago we started inviting wine waiters and sommeliers from the city’s best restaurants for beer tastings at Mikkeller Bar. Not because we felt that we had to teach them something, not because we wanted them to buy a lot of beer of us, no, we invited them for the simple reason that […]

Fresh From Floyds

  Tomorrow, Thursday, November 8th, we’ll be serving super fresh beer from Three Floyds at Mikkeller Bar. These beers are flown directly from Chicago to Copenhagen by a pilot who goes by the name Speed ​​King. Never before have you been served so fresh beer from the world’s best brewery: Three Floyds. The super fresh […]

Do you dare to push your luck…

Tonight we started selling tickets for CBC 2013. Many beer geeks stayed up half the night to make sure they got their highly coveted tickets. But there are other ways to get a ticket. If you come down to Mikkeller Bar and share the Black Sensation tonight, you can participate in the draw for 2 […]

Pink Session – a ticket for all three sessions at CBC

The guests want it, CBC want it; a ticket for all three sessions at CBC 2013. Apparently it’s a very difficult task for our ticket vendor; we want it done anyway. So here it is; “Pink Session” – a ticket for all three sessions at CBC 2013. We have 300 of those up for sale […]

3 of November – Black Sensation at Mikkeller Bar

I have seen many things in my time. I have seen shipwrecks, havoc and instantaneous death.  I am in touch with the dark side – so believe me, when I tell you: November the third will be a dark and stormy night. And in one particular place in town darkness will gather, it will be […]

The diverse nature of beer and people

Here at Mikkeller we are of course very interested in having as many people as possible taste our beer. But not only quantity matters, it never hurts to add a bit of star quality to your crowd of loyal customers. To spell it out it would of course be more interesting if President Obama tasted […]

Real beer for real Vikings

Here in Scandinavia we consider ourselves Vikings – or at least direct descendants of the Vikings. Many people think that life as a Viking is a walk in the park. But nothing could be further from the truth. Life as a Viking is hard. A Viking wakes up early and goes to bed late. And […]

Oak Moss Pale Ale

A few days ago I brewed a beer with Ben Reade. Ben is Head of Culinary Research and Development at Nordic Food Lab, which means that his job is more or less to investigate the strange and for most people unfamiliar ingredients that can be consumed, how you can possibly consume them, and how they […]

Back from De Molen

Today is the first day at the office after the festival at De Molen. So I’m a little tired, but certainly happy. To spend an entire weekend with happy beer geeks, brewers and colleagues is always a fantastic experience. This year we had chosen to bring a lot of sour beer to the festival. Sour […]

Mikkeller + Bedow

Here at Mikkeller we develop about 80 new beers each year. However, not every beer comes in a bottle, some only come in kegs and many are only brewed one time. But having said that, there are constantly new labels on their way in and out and since we work with many different label designers […]

Festival at De Molen

Although we here at Mikkeller hate repetition and predictability, we do have certain traditions. One of them is that we each autumn take a trip to Holland, to Bodegraven to attend the beer festival at De Molen. This year is no exception. The festval at De Molen gives us the opportunity to meet a lot […]

Farmhouse IPA

High up in Alaska, where the bears rule, where the winters are long and dark, and where a man is a man that digs for gold. High up north, where you only go if you are in search of happiness and easy money. Or if you are on the run from the long arm of […]

New Cream Ale


When I’m behind the wheel in the Mikkeller van, I can easily get a little lonely. I’m pretty sure that many truckers know what I’m talking about here. But instead of talking to other truckers in a walkie talkie or listening to sentimental country songs, I always turn the radio on. And then because I […]

Mikkeller Bar nominated Best Drink at Årets Gericke

Mikkeller Bar is nominated for best drink experience at Årets Gericke 2012. It’s the union of Danish food critics that nominate best food, best service, best drink etc. It’s named after a big idol of mine Søren Gericke who introduced the Danes to the Nouvelle Cuisine (modern gourmet food). He is the godfather to most of the successful Danish restaurants […]


I’m a Beer Geek. I love beer, I can talk about beer all day and I can drink beer all night. I might as well admit it: I’m a Beer Geek. But having said that, at least I’m only a Beer Geek. If I, in addition to my passion beer, for example was also an […]


Brewers are conservative, they stick to their methods, ingredients and processes. And that’s just good. If it wasn’t this conservatism, we would not be able to enjoy the classic Southern German Weissbier, Czech lager, English bitter or spontaneously fermented beer from Belgium just to name a few styles that, thanks to brewers’ conservatism, have been […]

A Job Well Done

Some men are made of flesh and bones, others are made ​​of steel. Some Steel Men are made ​​of ordinary steel, the kind of steel you use to build cars, bridges and railroads. Other Steel Men are made ​​of a harder material. There are men of steel among us that’re made ​​of samurai sword steel. […]

Thank you!

Dear friends, Brewers, Beergeeks, Freaks, Friends and Volunteers: Thanks for a great festival. Copenhagen Beer Celebration is over, and even though we are tired as hell, even though we can see there were some things that did not work optimally at CBC, we are also damn proud to have hosted this festival. Great food, great […]
