Mikkeller/Stillwater Collaboration ‘Our Side’ 1/4/11

This one wasn’t supposed to get out until early January 2011, but the cat started to slip out of the bag, so we figured we’d give our readers an early New Year’s gift!

Yes, it’s finally happening. The two world famous gypsy brewers, Mikkel Borg Bjergsø (Mikkeller – Denmark) and Brian Strumke (Stillwater Artisanal Ales – Baltimore, MD USA) are getting together and releasing Our Side, A Collaborative Gypsy Ale.

From the label:

Mikkel and Brian are two of the world’s most unconventional brewers. By designing beers at various breweries around the globe, they have found the freedom to experiment and innovate, resulting in unique beers that often blur the lines of definition. After having met at a festival in Bodegraven, NL the two realized that their first creations both were called Stateside. It was then an obvious decision to make the two recipes into a new product, packed full of piney, resinous hops, and backed by the esters of a farmhouse yeast strain.

There will be a special sneak cask preview in four different cities THIS Tuesday (January 4th) at 6pm, all taking place at the same time:

Max’s Taphouse (Baltimore, MD), ChurchKey (Washington, DC), Rustico Restaurant (Ballston, VA) and Rattle N Hum (NYC).
