One year ago today, Mikkeller’s Beer Geek Breakfast was the subject of a beer spotlight on this site. Here a year later, a new edition has arrived in the Beer Geek series – “Barrel Aged Beer Geek Breakfast.” The popular imperial stout spent about 3 months in a second use bourbon barrel. Brewer Mikkel Borg BjergsÃ¸ wanted to keep the bourbon moderate, not overwheming.
