Mikkeller-Nelson Sauvin Brut, Dream Pils, Beer Geek brewkfast, Funky E*Star, Hoppy Easter, It’s Alright, Alive! & Rauch Geek breakfast
26 January 2011
Here’s your first look at the some new bottle packaging and a raft of new keg approvals for some really great Mikkeller beers. Our favorite gyspy brewer Mikkel is obviously very busy these days.
The first label is Nelson Sauvin Brut. This is a newer version of Mikkel’s Nelson Sauvignon brewed for the 2009/2010 holidays and is a light Belgian-style (almost champagne-like) brew that is aged in Sauvignon Blanc Barrels and uses Nelson Sauvin-variety hops. Look for a Feb release in 25.4oz (750-ml) bottles and an ABV of 9%.
The second label is one we broke the news on a few days ago and showed the keg packaging, so here’s the 11.2oz bottle packaging. This is sold as American Dream Pils in Europe and comes in at 4.2% ABV
Next we have some really good news us US lovers of Mikkeller beers….coming soon on draft we will have Beer Geek breakfast (stout brewed with coffee—7.5% ABV-Nogne-0), Funky E*Star (Belgian Wild Ale-9.4% ABC De Proef), Hoppy Easter (6.6% ABV-De Proef), It’s Alright (4.5% ABV-De Proef), Alive! (Belgian Wild Ale-8% ABV-De Proef), and Rauch Geek Brewkfast (Smoked Stout Brewed w/Coffee-7.5% ABV- Nogne-0)…stay tuned for details.
