24 Bars in Aarhus - part 20

Mikkeller Bar

This is the newest addition to the beer scene in Aarhus. Mikkeller runs/co-runs several bars and restaurants in Copenhagen. Mikkeller also have bars in selected cities around the world of which I have visited the one in San Francisco.

28th November was the opening day and the event attracted a lot of local beer entusiasts

Queue to get in at Mikkeller Bar at the opening day

Mikkeller Bar Aarhus has 20 taps and a very good bottle selection

The 20 taps seems to be 3 regular Mikkeller House Beers (Wit, Pils and Brown) 5 guest beers and 12 rotating Mikkellers

So far I have seen guest beers from Boon, Hoppin Frog, Warpigs and Alesmith (including their Vietnamese Coffee Stout!)

Mikeller Tap List and Lucas the Bar Manager

The tap list seems to include a lot of the beer styles that is very popular amongst entusiasts, like Stouts, Sours and IPA's. The beer prices varies a bit and some of the more special stuff can be very pricy, but there is always a lot of "normal" priced beers

The beer I decided to drink at this vist was the supreme Koppi IPA Citra - Santa Barbara, and this is one of most well made beers I have ever tried. A perfect balance of the hops, and also the hops versus the coffee. Also the advantage of being so associated with the brewery, the beers are usually very very freash. And this Koppi IPA was delicious fresh. One of the best beers I had this December

Mikkeller Bar Aarhus has a a range of their own spirits, but also some whiskies

Just a short time after my visit, Mikkeller Bar had an event with the release of the newest batch of Mexas Ranger. For that they had Mexican food from the excellent Chido, and with the mexican theme Lucas had also obtained one of the finest spirits in the world. the del Maguey Chicicapa

I highly recommend Mikkeller Bar Aarhus. It's a must visit for a beer entusiast in Aarhus
