Mikkeller Blog @ Cabinet Artisanal

31 May 2012


It’s a lot of fun to see our pals Terry Hawbaker, Mike Hiller & Kristen Mullen appearing with Thomas from Mikkeller in the Mikkeller blog.  You guys are having WAY too much fun!  Here’s the post from Mikkeller:

Yesterday we sat all day at the Cabinet Artisanal Brewhouse and waited for the yeast that was delayed because of Memorial Day. The only meaningful thing to do in that situation was to drink a lot of the good beers.

Terry served one fantastic farmhouse beer after another. While we sat and enjoyed the good beer we came suddenly to talk about malt liquor – a terrible beer that is most often enjoyed straight out of a bottle, wrapped in a brown paper bag under a bridge by a homeless man.

The conversation led to a bum wine tasting – I do not know why we did it, but suddenly they good beer replaced with the most horrible cheap booze I’ve ever tasted.

After that experience, there was barbecue food and even more amazing farmhouse ales.

We ended early because the day after we were going to brew the first of three Mikkeller/Farmers Cabinet beers.

More from Thomas:

After a pleasant evening in Alexandria, with pizza and local beer in the company of Terry Hawbaker and his girlfriend, photographer Kristen Mullen, it’s finally time to see Cabinet Artisanal Brewhouse.
The yeast to be used for primary fermentation has not arrived at the brewery yet, since it was Memorial Day yesterday, so today, Terry will show me around the brewery, and we will taste some of the beer he has brewed – which I really look forward to.

The picture for this blog entry shows Terry surrounded by some of the wine barrels that have been purchased for this Mikkeller / Farmers Cabinet collaboration brew. It is planned that both the primary and secondary fermentation should be carried out in wooden barrels. But more about that later on.

It’s by the way Kristen Mullen who has taken the picture of her smoking boyfriend and all the wine barrels.
