The world renown Mikkeller has finally found a home in San Diego, and is canning no less. It didn’t take much convincing that what was going to come out of the the San Diego spot would be gold.
In January, the first limited release debuted, Mikkeller San Diego Fruit Face Raspberry Coffee.
First of all, in our book Mikkeller is synonymous with words like unique, weird, and creative. If you have a few hours, go ahead and read over founder Mikkel Borg Bjergsø insane body of work. It will take you a while.
Kicking off 2017, some of the first beers emerging from Mikkeller San Diego are in cans. Among the first was an incredibly dank Uklar IPA, and this ruby hued beauty – Fruit Face Raspberry Coffee. Maybe it’s just us, but we never thought of combining raspberries and coffee. Turns out, we should have done it a long time ago.
There is an esoterically addictive qualitiy to this edition of Fruit Face. Each tart sip starts with fresh raspberries and ends with a hint of fresh ground coffee beans. A real stunner that you can’t put down. Good thing this beer is just 4% ABV.
With everything in life, there’s a catch. Fruit Face Raspberry Coffee is part of Mikkeller San Diego’s Small Batch Series, and unfortunately very limited. Releases like this debut every weekend throughout the year and will rarely stray far from San Francisco, San Diego, Oakland and Los Angeles.
So much good coming out Mikkeller’s U.S. spot this year, and we’re just getting started.
