Mikkeller News for 2010
We recently caught up with Mikkel Borg Bjergsø and asked him what was on the horizon for 2010 for Mikkeller . 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. Since the summer of 2007, Mikkel Borg Bjergsø, has run Mikkeller on his own. Mikkel is a ‘gipsy-brewer’, who brews at different breweries in Denmark, around Europe and the United States. His beer is becoming more and more available, as they are being imported by Shelton Brothers, and in some cases distributed by Stone Distribution. When Mikkel refers to “you guys” he means residents of the United States. Enjoy!
From Mikkel –
Lots and lots of things going on. Always hard to say as I come up with new things all the time. I will tell you about some of the things that will be coming in 2010.
