Teacher turned brewer
In 2006, Mikkel Borg Bjergsø was a maths and physics teacher who began experimenting with hops, malt and yeast at home in his kitchen in Copenhagen.
Today he exports his micro-brewed beer to 40 countries and is acclaimed as one of the world’s most innovative brewers.
Innovative Danish craft brewer Mikkeller aims to brew quality beer that you’ll choose to savour with good food. Nevermind the wine, you’ll reach for a Mikkeller – that’s their mission statement.
Notably, they do this using the best ingredients and most talented team. Above all, their vision insists they DON’T make watery or tasteless beer. What better news for alcohol free fans? At Mikkeller, beer is there to challenge our taste buds – be it bitter, spicy, sour or fruity.
Love the labels
Mikkeller bottles stand out immediately, thanks to designer Keith Shore’s distinctive labels. Highly coloured and slightly weird, they’re telling a story about the beer inside. It’s another sign of quality, we think.
