In 2003 he was a math and physics teacher who started experimenting with hops, malt, and yeast at home in his small Copenhagen kitchen – just a stone’s throw away from Carlsberg’s main brewing site.
Today, Mikkel Borg Bjergsø exports his craft beer to 50 countries and operates an equal number of bars and restaurants around the globe. His inventive, constant development of Mikkeller has brought him international acclaim as one of the most innovative and cutting-edge brewers and entrepreneurs in the world.
Mikkeller is first and foremost a world of beer – showcasing all possible styles and ingredients, this is a universe whose endless possibilities include hops, malt, barrel aging, spontaneous fermentation, liquorice, coffee, passion fruit, cherries, chili, chocolate, and more. But it doesn’t stop there: we also operate bars and restaurants around the world, host an internationally-renowned beer festival, and have a running club with 250 chapters worldwide.
We aim to move people by brewing beer that challenges the concept of good beer. We do this by using the best ingredients and working with the most talented and creative minds around the globe.
