Mikkeller next brewery to "takeover' all Taphouse taps


We are unbelievably excited to confirm that coming up in August is our second ever Taphouse Tap Takeover. The first one in May featured WA's Feral Brewery taking over all 100 available taps with twenty of their beers. The Takeover was a smash hit and has spurred us on to do more Takeovers and Makeovers (part Takeovers). Mikkeller is next and others are in the pipeline..

Mikkeller is a so-called "phantom" microbrewery founded in 2006 and based in Copenhagen, Denmark. The company brews at a variety of breweries in several different countries including Denmark, Norway, Belgium, the UK and the US.

It was founded in 2006 by home brewers Mikkel Borg Bjergsø and Kristian Klarup Keller with the intention of "challenging the Danes’ taste buds with intense taste adventures." Mikkeller found some inspiration for their widely-varied, edgy brewing approach "on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean where the American breweries aren’t afraid to play and break all the rules.

Ratebeer.com rates Mikkeller as being in the top 40 breweries in the world..

  3. I'd echo my sentiments from Tuesday when you told us about this, but I'm afraid they contain a few expletives. Needless to say, this is fantastic news. What's exciting for me is that I've not tried most of these beers even out of the bottle.

  6. Mikel did the same thing recently at the Blind Tiger in New York (best beer bar in America) and had all 14 of his single hop beers on tap .I had just left the states so I missed out but a friend of mine went to the Spring Lounge ,the Blind Thiers sister bar, in Manhhatan and told me how good it was .

    I think Ill be at the Taphouse for the whole month when Mikels beers go on Tap!
