With the recent opening of Mikkeller Bar in Union Square San Francisco; the first outside of Copenhagen, what better time to talk about all the exciting new beer we are getting in here at Beltramo’s from this unique ‘Gypsy Brewery’ from Denmark.
From its inception in 2006 by two home-brewers, Mikkel Borg Bjergsø and Kristian Klarup Keller, Mikkeller has rocketed to national and international fame, consistently being voted among the top 10 breweries in the world. Mikkeller’s success rests on both the uncompromising nature of producing high quality beer (never to be sacrificed by quantity) and the ability to produce experimental and unique products to challenge the palates and perceptions of the consumer.
With the ever growing demand for premium Craft Beer here in the U.S. combined with more educated and savvy beer drinkers looking for something new, Mikkeller is the perfect fit, with a huge array of high quality products showcasing every spectrum of the brewers art.
