A new year in beer

My new “A Word On Beers” stickers.

Another year has passed and many great experiences with the people of the Danish craft beer community has been enjoyed. I’m grateful for meeting so many of you nice people at so many different events and I hope to meet even more of you in 2020. And where should we meet then?

The first event I will attend is the Mikkeller Baghaven Wild Ale Celebration 2020. I will be there for the red session Saturday the 8th of February from 12 till 16. I’m really looking forward to this event since the brewery lineup is great so far. Confirmed breweries at the moment are:

  • Hill Farmstead
  • Oud Beersel
  • Burning Sky
  • Æblerov
  • Bokke
  • Juguetes Perdidos
  • Boon
  • Oxbow
  • 2nd Shift
  • De Garde Brewing
  • Casey Brewery and Blending
  • Jester King
  • Lindemans Brewery
  • Boulevard Brewing
  • Sour Cellars
  • Tired Hands Brewing Company
  • Highland Park Brewing
  • Perennial Artisan Ales
  • Transient Artisan Ales
  • Plan Bee Farm Brewery
  • Rare Barrel
  • Bofkont
  • Funk Factory Geuzeria
  • Cerveza Granizo
  • Speciation Artisan Ales
  • Zomerdijk Brewing & Blending
  • Mikkeller Baghaven
  • Mikkeller San Diego
  • Mikkeller

With a brewery lineup like that I think it should be possible to find something to enjoy. I don’t think I’m able to pick a few breweries as favorites but I’m particularly interested in beers from Hill Farmstead, Speciation Artisan Ales, Rare Barrel, Sour Cellars, Plan Bee Farm Brewery, Perennial Artisan Ales, Bokke, Jester King, and De Garde Brewing. Please tell me if there’s something I just have to taste?

In May 2020 I’ll be going to another Mikkeller event since I’ll be in Copenhagen for the Mikkeller Beer Week and especially Mikkeller Beer Celebration Copenhagen. I’ll be attending sessions both Friday and Saturday with my wife -and as we did last year we’ll team up with Anders Ousen from the Danish beer blog Ousen om øl and Rene from Beershoppen in Kolding for the early session on Saturday. Not many breweries have been announced yet but I’m sure it will be a great festival once again.

If you haven’t bought a ticket it’s about time since three of the four sessions are sold out. The yellow session, Friday, May 8th, is still available and Pink and Gold tickets for the full festival experience are also still available. You can find tickets here.

I’m sure 2020 will not only bring Mikkeller events. If Beers Behind Bars in Horsens is repeated I’ll sure like to go again. And no doubt that Rowdy Hops in Aarhus will be in my calendar again this year if I’m lucky enough that there will be a second festival. Last year’s Rowdy Hops was phenomenal -both beers and atmosphere considered.   

Besides all the beer festivals I’m sure I’ll be part of numerous great tasting sessions throughout 2020 with friends as well as in the local part of Danske Ølentusiaster in Silkeborg where I live. I’ll also be conducting some tasting sessions when people ask me to do so. Ask me if you want me to conduct a tasting session for you and your friends  🙂

I’m sure 2020 will be a great year of beer! What do you expect in the world of beer in 2020? – Go to my Facebook page and tell me in the comments to this post
