What do you do when you run a beer shop when ther’s a beer festival in town? Have an exclusive beer on tap for a few hours to get the tickers into your shop, of course.
So, that’s what Ølbutikken did.
As it’s run by the brother of Mikkel of Mikkeller fame, it was hardly surprising that it was a Mikkeller beer. The Mikkeller Beer Geek Brunch One-for-One Calvados Barrel Aged with Cherries. No less.
A merry crowd has turned up at ten on Saturday morning, the location being very convenient for those of us that stayed at the Sct Thomas Hotel just around the corner.
The beer? A lovely imperial stout from Mikkeller, strong Calvados aroma, a wee bit on the heavy side for the time of day. On the other hand it was warming on a chilly day. As for the cehrries, they gave a hint of fruit and sweetness, but they had some problems to cope with the rest of the mix.
