Mikkeller was founded as a microbrewery in Copenhagen by physics teacher Mikkel Borg Bjergsø and Kristian Klarup Keller in 2006. Both were avid home brewers, and Mikkeller has continued to honor that tradition by collaborating with a variety of brewers to come up with many interesting and complex beers, which is how Mikkeller has produced hundreds of different beers available at their many tasting rooms around the world. In the United States, they've stuck to California, opening outposts in San Francisco, Oakland, San Diego and Downtown LA.
Mikkeller NYC — located next to the right field gate on 126th Street — is the brewery’s first U.S. location outside of California and its 32nd worldwide.
The 10,000-square-foot space includes a brewery, restaurant, bar and shop that will be open year-round.
The production area includes a 20 barrel brewhouse, lots of single batch fermenters, and a canning line to provide fresh and varied offerings to customers on a weekly basis. There are 60 taps in the bar-restaurant area, where food will be served from partners including Fuku and Pat LaFrieda Meat Purveyors, Claus Meyer’s Great Northern Food Hall.
