Mikkeller from Copenhagen
Mikkeller was founded in 2006 as a Gypsy brewery and is now one of the most successful craft breweries in the world. In addition to numerous Mikkeller bars around the world, the brewery now even has its own breweries in San Diego and London. Founder Mikkell Borg Bergsjø is the driving force behind the brand and launches a new offshoot almost every month. Be it a new bar in Shanghai, a running club, a chocolate brand, its own chips, or exciting collobaration with, for example, the German wine maker Meierer or the classic Kölsch brewery Gaffel from Cologne.
Mikkeller Beer Celebration Copenhagen
The Mikkeller cosmos never seems to stand still. An annual highlight for all beer nerds is the Mikkeller Beer Celebration Copenhagen - MBCC for short. This beer festival, which has been taking place since 2013, attracts thousands of beer enthusiasts from all over the world to Copenhagen/Denmark to meet the hottest breweries and drink their beers. Giants like Hill Farmstead, Three Floyds Brewing, The Veil, Other Half, Trillium or Monkish are always present at this one, but new names are added every year.
Mikkeller in Germany
Mikkeller is also becoming better known and bigger in Germany. In addition to the bar in Berlin in Germany, a pop-up bar was set up here at Beyond Beer for a week in early 2020, where exclusive beers from the Danes were available - including from Mikkeller Baghaven, the brand's wild beer offshoot.
It never gets boring with Mikkeller. Because hardly a week goes by without a new beer being launched.
