"The story of Mikkeller is the story of two homebrewers that in a few years went from hobby brewing in the kitchen to national and international recognition...Already in Mikkellers first year as a brewery (2006), the two creators, Mikkel Borg Bjergsø and Kristian Klarup Keller, were named Danish brewery of the year and the fifth best brewery in the world by http://www.ratebeer.com/." -- Mikkeller

All Others Pale
"All Others Pale - as in "all others pale in comparison" is, as the name indicates: a pale ale with a little more of everything. There has been a lack of easy-to-drink beers in Mikkellers selection, and finally it is here. With its low alcohol content, its light elegant body, and its balanced hops, All Others Pale is the perfect summer beer." -- Mikkeller
"Mikkeller Black Stout is Mikkellers strongest and wildest beer to date. Mikkeller Black Stout has the Chinese character for black on the label. Black is an imperial stout at no less than 17.5% alcohol, making it Denmark's strongest beer ever." -- Mikkeller
"It's Alive! is Mikkellers answer and tribute to the trappist beer Orval. It's Alive is an easy-to-drink beer, with a lot of hops. The colour is amber, the foam is high, white and dense. The potent Brettanomyce culture makes It's Alive continue to develop in the bottle." -- Mikkeller
"A Danish pilsner is typically characterized by an alcohol content of 4,6% vol., piss-yellow colour and a sexless, slightly bitter taste. But it doesn’t have to be like this…! Draft Bear is Mikkellers interpretation of a ’pilsner’, heavyweight-style. With its powerful hop notes, high alcohol content and lovely golden appearance, the only reference to the pilsner style is the clean taste of the lager yeast." -- Mikkeller
"A love of American microbrews is the inspiration behind this IPA, brewed with generous amounts of aromatic, American hops, which provide the significant freshness and bitterness with lots of citrus notes. The taste sensations are nicely balanced by the sweetness from the caramel malt." -- Mikkeller
"Finally……! Black Hole is what Mikkeller is all about. Daring, vulgar and extreme. From the very beginning Mikkellers goal has been to push the limit and with this warming, intense imperial stout, a new chapter in the Danish beer history has been written. The high bitterness from the hops and the sweetness from the malt and alcohol, creates a good balance which makes Black Hole an explosion of nuances, but also leaves a feeling of a perfect and complex beer – in the heavyweight category" -- Mikkeller
I would love to be at the European Beer Festival -- Mikkeller is releasing their new beers!
"On saturday September 13th during the weekend of the European Beer Festival 2008, we will open the doors of Ølbutikken for a special Mikkeller release event! A six pack of 6 new beers - 3 from Mikkeller and 3 collaboration beers with Mikkeller - will be sold and a very special treat will be available on draught!
