More Mikkeller ---

Mikkeller - one of the best and hardest to find beers. We already have the Mikkeller Stateside IPA (delicious if you have not tried it) and Jackie Brown in stock. Now we just received the Mikkeller Black Stout and Mikkeller Draft Beer.

"This years Ratebeer Best list has just been released. Mikkeller is placed the 6th best brewery in the world in competition with more than 8.000 breweries! In the top 100 best beers in the world list Mikkeller has four beers - in a competition with more than 76.000 beers." -- Mikkeller

Mikkeller It's Alive...$12.99 / 750ml
Belgian Wild Ale / 8% Alc
Mikkeller's tribute to ORVAL!
"'It's Alive!' is a blonde Belgian ale brewed with brettanomyces. It is inspired by Belgian Orval and has a fresh hoppiness and dry finish. The brettanomyces makes this beer live on in the bottle and will develop it greatly over the next couple years." -- Mikkeller
Mikkeller Monks Brew...$12.99 / 750ml
Belgian Dark Ale / 10% Alc
"Monk's Elixir is Mikkellers tribute to the great trappist monks of Belgium! The beer is names 'Monk's Brew' in the U.S." -- Rated 96 percentile on

Mikkeller Black Stout....$15.99 / 12.7oz btl
17.5% Alcohol---WOW!

One of their hardest beers to find. According to Beer Advocate, it is a one time only brew. Mikkeller's website does not say if it will be brewed again or not. Very rare, get it while you can! (only 12 bottles available)

"Finally Mikkellers strongest and wildest beer till this date is available. We are talking about the beer 'black' with the chinese symbol for black on the label. Black is an imperial stout at 17.5 % vol. - making it the strongest beer ever by a Danish brewery!!!" -- Mikkeller

Mikkeller Draft Beer....$13.99 / 25oz
Brewed at De Proef Brouwerij, Lochristi-Hijfte, Belgium
Very hard to get!
(only 6 bottles available right now, 5 after I drink one)
Alc. 8.0% vol. 750 ml.
"An imperial pilsner brewed with: water, malts (pils, carapils and amber), light candy sugar, hops (amarillo and cascade) and lager yeast. A Danish pilsner is typically characterized by an alcohol content of 4,6% vol., piss-yellow colour and a sexless, slightly bitter taste. But it doesn’t have to be like this…! Draft Bear is Mikkellers interpretation of a ’pilsner’, heavyweight-style. With its powerful hop notes, high alcohol content and lovely golden appearance, the only reference to the pilsner style is the clean taste of the lager yeast." -- Mikkeller
(currently only at our Forsyth location)
