Brewery Info

Like all good breweries, there’s an excellent story behind Mikkeller. In 2006 Mikkel Borg Bjergsø was a maths and physics teacher with a growing passion for beer. Inspired by foreign brews, he decided to create something even better himself (for less money!), and so the brewing experiments began. When his home-brew won a blind taste test against Brøckhouse IPA he knew he was onto something, and started entering homebrew competitions - which he invariably won. Combining science with passion, Mikkel began brewing at Danish microbrewery Ørbæk and distributing from a friend’s beer shop.

This in itself was pretty good, but the big breakthrough came when Mikkel added french press coffee to an oatmeal stout. The resulting Beer Geek Breakfast was quickly voted the #1 stout on Ratebeer and the rest, as they say, is history. Although he’s never owned his own brewery, Mikkel constantly invents, creates and collaborates with some of the world’s best breweries to produce truly stunning beers. He’s achieved almost cult-like status and is certainly one of our favourite brewers. If you’re looking for passion, honesty and seriously tasty beer, you’ve come to the right place.

Best alcohol free beer I've found!
Review by
This beer is a revelation. I've been experimenting with alcohol free beers recently and have been bitterly disappointed by almost everything I've tried, so I didn't have high expectations for this. What an amazing surprise was in store for me! This is a light, floral brew which doesn't have the emptiness that most alcohol free beers are left with after their alcohol has been removed. It's satisfying and even more thirst quenching than alcoholic beers. 100% recommended!
Worth a try

This was my first time trying any Mikkeller beer and was curious to know what to expect from it being "microbiologically flavoured". The answer is something rather unusual; not quite like a regular beer and more of a sour variety. Worth trying but I don't think I'd go for it again. Loved the bottle label though!
