Today I tried a beer from a newer brewery: Mikkeller. This brewery has only been around since 2006 … a couple of homebrewers in Denmark that decided to open their own brewery. Homebrewing is a common starting point for many of today’s craft brewers…thank goodness! I believe homebrewing really gives these craft brewers the right perspective in starting out and then developing as a brewer.
This brewery has been experimenting with single hops in a beer. This version is the Nugget hop. Since I grow the nugget hop and will be using it in my next brew, I thought I’d give this one a try. It is a very nice IPA. The Nugget Hops work throughout … nice bittering/flavor and a good aroma.
Even without having brewed with my nugget hops, I’m excited to make my next IPA. I will have to keep my eyes open for some more of these Mikkeller brews.
