Mikkeller's Book of Beer shows you how to be a better beer connoisseur as well as teaching you how to brew exciting, great-tasting beer at home. 

The book takes you through the brewing process, step-by-step, and provides everything you need to know to become a great home brewer: it covers ingredients, equipment and preparation; mashing, boiling and the addition of hops; and finally, fermentation, storage and bottling. 

Also included are 25 original Mikkeller brewing recipes. These range from good beginner's beers such as pale ale and brown ale to more advanced ales such as barley wine, smoked stout and Belgian wild ale, so there is something here for both the novice and the experienced home brewer. 

Learn too about Mikkeller's evolution from experimental hobby brewer to trailblazing international microbrewery; the history of beer; the beer revolution of the 1990s, beer and food, and the most important beer types, from pale lagers through highly-hopped IPAs to dark stouts and strong quadruples.

The author

MIKKEL BORG BJERGSØ is the founder of one of Denmark’s first microbreweries, Mikkeller. After working as a Maths and Physics teacher, Mikkel decided to use his skills to experiment at home making a variety of different beers. From there, stemmed a world-acclaimed company exporting their beers to 40 different countries, making bespoke beers for some of the most prominent restaurants in Denmark and collaborating with innovative microbreweries around the world, including Three Floyds and Anchorage. After mastering the brewery side of the business, Mikkel has expanded, setting up his own bars and shops, that can now be found in large cities across the globe, from Bangkok to his home city of Copenhagen.

PERNILLE PANG spent five years working in journalism, including writing for the Danish newspaper, Politiken, before becoming a freelance writer in 2010. Since then she has written about various topics, from China to local cultural news writing for an array of companies such as Mikkeller and Stella magazine.
