Visit to Mikkeller Bar in San Francisco

While in San Francisco for the California Beer & Beverage Distributors meeting, Beer Marketer’s Insights visited Mikkeller Bar.  Danish owner and gypsy brewer Mikkel Borg Bjergso opened the self-proclaimed “greatest beer hall ever” about a year ago in the Tenderloin. (His twin brother Jeppe owns “Evil Twin” in Brooklyn.)

On a Saturday afternoon, Mikkeller Bar filled up with a coed group celebrating a birthday, singles, couples and multi-generational families. 

42 brews are organized on the menu by the temperature at which they’re served (45, 40, or 55°). They tout their “flux capacitor” gas blending system.  We happily sampled:

Mikkeller Winbic  |  Sour Lambic & Saison Blend   |  6% 

Mikkeller Spontancassis  |  Sour Lambic w/ Cassis  |   7.7% 

Amager/Three Floyds Arctic SunStone  |  American Pale Ale  |  6%, and

Port Brewing Santa’s Little Helper  |  Imperial Stout  | 10%
