My heart hurts a little bit. Stockholm’s finest (according to me) beer bar, Mikkeller bar Sthlm, is turning one year old. I was one of the original beertenders there and love the place to bits and pieces. That’s why it breaks my heart that I will not be there for the anniversary.
Mikkeller Bar Sthlm opened its door on March 15th 2014 to the public and I remember people coming to line up an hour and a half before opening time.
For the opening day we had a crazy tap list with several beers that had never been served before. I’m pretty sure that will happen at the anniversary day as well, and I know for a fact that there will be a lot of sours and some old favorites will be back for this special day.The celebration of the bar’s 1st anniversary will be held on March 14th. There will be awesome beers, awesome people behind and in front of the bar and a free lottery with beer related stuff! If you’re living in Stockholm or are planning a trip there, you have to go to this event!
The bar is located in Vasastan, in central Stockholm, and has 20 taps and a lot (A LOT) of bottles. Most of the taps are dedicated to Mikkeller’s beer, but there’s always room for guest taps with beers from Sweden, Denmark, Norway, England, US, Japan. You name it. With the great friendship between Mikkeller and Three Floyds, the bar always has at least one Three Floyds on tap. Which is pretty awesome.
It is a freaking gorgeous bar with a great atmosphere which encourages people to look one another in the eyes and talk about beer. The service is splendid with staff that really know their stuff and can guide anyone in the jungle of craft beers!
