Mikkeller Beer Week Event Listing

Hi. Take a seat.


With so many venues in play and all the amazing events we have lined up for this years MBW, this is the the place you can always go to for the full overview of happenings. As we go along we will be updating this regularly, so check back frequently to stay updated. Furthermore, all the venues will be listing one main event on their Facebook pages, should you wish to keep taps on specific bars/restaurants etc.

Welcome to the show, friends!

 Mikkeller Bar Viktoriagade

8/5: Birthday and street party
Mikkeller Bar turns 6!
As always, this means that we will kick off Mikkeller Beer Week by closing of the street for traffic and launch a huge street party at Viktoriagade from 11 am. We have invited our best friends and neighbors to make sure that nothing will be missed in terms of food, drinks and entertainment.
There will be live music from 1 to 3 and the rest of the time DJ’s will be playing from an old Firetruck to make sure the atmosphere is as killer as always when this young lady celebrates her birthday.

9/5: The Battle of the Randalls: Viktoriagade vs. Stefansgade
The battle of the Randalls is back!
It’s Stefansgade vs. Viktoriagade, Nørrebro vs. Vesterbro, a rowdy no bullshit attitude vs. grown up integrity. Last year at CBC the boisterous little brother from Stefansgade took a surprising victory with their Tea-BC pils over big sister Viktoria’s strawberry infused version. This year Mikkeller Porter will be the base beer that both bars will try to upgrade. Swing by Viktoriagade, taste them both and cast your vote in the battle of the Randalls.

10/5: Vertical tastings of Belgian classics
Mikkeller Bar Viktoriagade is blessed with a vintage bottle list of Belgian classics to die for. Unfortunately, few people find it suiting to go through all of our 11 different vintages of 12 per cent Stille Nacht. Today you have the chance to do this without killing you liver or your wallet.
De Dolle Oerbier Special Reserva, Orval, De Dolle Stille Nacht and Rodenbach Grand Cru will be on sale in small sample sizes in several different vintages going all the way back to 2005. All bottles have been stored properly so we guarantee that quality is high.
Older vintages are limited quantity so this is definitely a one-time experience at Mikkeller Bar Viktoriagade. Don’t miss out on this!

11/5: Three Floyds Tap Takeover
Three Floyds Tap Takeover returns once again to Viktoriagade. This is the annual day of fresh Zombie Dust and barrel aged Dark Lord (3 different versions) on tap brought all the way from Munster, Indiana to the Floyd brother’s second home in Europe.
We have invited legendary Copenhagen “pølsemand”, Hot Dog John, to make sure that you will still be on your feet after four different glasses of 15% imperial stout. This is a day of celebration in Viktoriagade and we are so happy to be able to invite the Floyd brothers and their beers to our bar once again for a rock and roll atmosphere for the fourth year in a row.

12/5: Meet the brewer: Upcoming Danish Breweries
At Mikkeller Bar Viktoriagade we acknowledge and appreciate the whales being brought to Copenhagen for the week. But we should not forget that great things are happening here in our own city as well.
Dry and Bitter and Alefarm are two new Danish breweries that we really believe in. We have invited the brewers to bring some of their favorite beers (that they don’t bring for the CBC sessions) to give non-Copenhageners a chance to see what’s happening on the beer scene in our wonderful city. The brewers will sit in the bar all day to guide you in your choices. Chat them up, they are nice and knowledgeable people!

15/5: Sunday brunch and coffee
“After a week of craft beer drinking it is probably time to stop.” Said no sane beer geek ever. You just need to stock up on greasy food and make sure the beers and cocktails you drink contain coffee.
With a little help from our friends at Mikropolis we will ensure the latter. Øl & Brød will guarantee the former with a big buffet at their restaurant next door. You can bring your food to our benches outside and enjoy a Beer Geek Breakfast, an espresso Martini or a warm cup of coffee from the Swedish coffee aficionados from Koppi with your Sunday morning brunch!

WarPigs Brewpub

10/5: Mikkeller Beer Run
The 2nd edition of the beer run will take you through the streets of Vesterbro - and a whole lotta beers!! Start/Finish right here at 19.00

11/5: Crooked Moon Tattoo Day
Brothers Jacob and Jonas from Crooked Moon Helsingborg will be in the house to tap a testosterone version of their Mikkeller collab beer Crooked Moon IIPA (this one having a ton of fruit added to it!) brewed right here at WarPigs. Mikkeller is releasing the same version (brewed in Belgium) around CBC, but this is your chance to taste it fresh as can be, straight from the kegging line.

To make our Swedish brothers feel at home, Chef Andrew will be creating a couple of small disaster/masterpieces by doing a WarPigs take on the infamous IKEA buffet. It's going to be silly and tasty.

Last but not least; they will be giving away two tattoos for free! (one each) All you have to do is show up, put your name on the list at the bar and write a short explanation as to why you deserve to be the lucky owner!
Jacob and Jonas will read through all entries and pick the winners at 19:00.
The designs will be pre-made and palm-size.
Check back for pictures.

12/5: Hill Farmstead Day
Shaun Hill of Hill Farmstead Brewery will be brewing one of his amazing beers together with our brewers Kyle and Lan-Xin, as well as hosting a massive tap takeover. There will be bottles that have never left the brewery in Vermont for sale anywhere, so this one is not to be missed! (note: bottles are for in-house consumption only)
To keep your hunger in check, the kitchen will be serving some Vermont signature food.  

13/5: S.O.B. Concert for free!
An all members of S.O.D.-approved 1 time only project cover band, Stormtroopers of Beer will be playing Speak English Or Die in its entirety outside our brewpub at 21:00, just in time after the final session at CBC Friday night.

About BRUS:
The guys behind the brewery To Øl and Mikropolis bar have joined forces to create a brewpub, restaurant, shop and bar in Nørrebro.

BRUS is the name of the place; a 750 m2 raw building with activities ranging wide from producing, brewing, kegging, cooking, dining and drinking. It all comes together in a sum of quality, science, experiments and functionality to create a playful venue for beer-lovers, microbrewers and hungry souls who fancy some socializing city life; a place with a constantly evolving range of experimental food and beverages.

The Danish name ‘BRUS’ refers to the sparkling quality liquid obtains when carbonated; the frizzy feeling of great brew. With production on-location, BRUS will be one of Copenhagen’s most ambitious microbrew and soft drink projects to date.

You need something to cleanse your tastebuds from the 14% session Double IBA you drank the day before, something to recover you safely and give you a renewed love and zest for life. In simple terms, you need a really good hangover brekkie.
