The craft brewery and pop legend team up once again to open a brewpub in Exmouth Market, London.
Just one year after the spectacular opening of Mikkeller’s first London location, Mikkeller Bar London in Shoreditch, Mikkeller and Rick Astley are now embarking on a new adventure – namely, the opening of a brewpub in Exmouth Market in Clerkenwell. The two-floor brewpub will contain a bar and restaurant, as well as a brewery that can produce 7.5 hectoliters of beer at a time. The in-house brewery will supply the bar with completely fresh beer and infuse the 264 square meters of the premises with the comforting aroma of malt and hops.
“London is a fantastic city with a great brewing scene and many new, young breweries, and we are really looking forward to becoming a part of it”, says Mikkel Borg Bjergsø, founder and owner of Mikkeller.
Bjergsø and Astley met each other a few years ago when they collaborated to brew the beer ‘Astley’s Northern Hop Lager,’ and the idea to open a bar together in London grew out of their friendship. The Mikkeller bar in Shoreditch, which have just celebrated its first birthday, was an instant success. It felt natural to take the partnership to the next level and open another location in the bustling capital.
