De Proef Brouwerij

Préaris Quadrocinno (2014)

In a perfect world, when met with a beer style suitable for aging, one seeks to acquire at least two bottles of the beer in question, such that you have a bottle to drink now and a bottle to drink later. That way, you can see how the character of a beer changes over time. Of course, this isn't always possible, and should your first experience with a beer be with a cellared sample, it's only natural to wonder what it must have been like fresh.

Mikkeller was founded in 2006 by a math teacher, Mikkel Borg Bjergsø and a journalist, Kristian Klarup Keller. Both were home brewers and when Mikkel got a job at a café that received imports like Chimay and Hoegarden it gave him a taste for beer that wasn’t readily available to him. Then one day when he drank an IPA from he quickly realized two things, he wanted to make beer like that and he could save a lot of money if he could.
