The Full Pour
If you're looking for a taste of Copenhagen, in both beer and design, pedal over to Mikkeller Berlin. The space is intimate, and true to Danish hygee, all the way down to the trademark pendant lights that you'll find in some of their hometown concepts. What's interesting, however, is how well this environment seems to work with the flavor of Mitte. The inviting glow spilling out of the interior noticeably grabs the attention of passers-by, curious about what could possibly be going on inside. Along with a loaded board of 24 taps, consisting of both Mikkeller and guest beers, they've introduced a now very distinct beer experience to a thriving craft beer culture in Berlin. Fans of beer bars found around Denmark, will feel right at home here.
Why is this on THL?
Mikkeller seems to be increasingly adept at opening the right operation, in the right city, at the right time. Anyone that has been to Copenhagen already knows that their powerful impact on the Danish craft beer scene has been meaningful, and it's clear that they will continue to apply their honed instincts to collaborate on the world's grandest stages. This entry is for those looking to see what's new with their current collaborations (especially with Berlin entities over time) and to sample other quality beers from around the craft beer cosmos. The superbly friendly staff is also serving up locally sourced cheese, German sausage and Mikkeller spirits. If you're looking to roll this into a few other stops nearby, amble up to Monterey Bar to experience something completely different in a beer bar, or pop into Salt'n Bone for a sublime meal you won't soon forget.
