(The New York Times)   Danish identical twins are professional gypsy brewers and hate each other, to the extent of one brother designing high-alcohol extreme beer to troll the other. "It's not a beer I'd drink, but it came out excellent, and it gets crazy high ratings"   (nytimes.com) divider line 38

Beer rating sites hugely overrate strong beers. They're like a Belgian triple drinkers circle jerk.
/ and I like a well made strong beer

I don't care how good their beers supposedly are. These guys both sound like two of the most pretentious dickhats ever.

It's the least manly beer ever, but I really like Lambics. And there basically is no microbrew scene for Lambics. The market is too small. Pretentious or not, I'd be curious to see what someone like this could do with one of those.

Yep. FTA: Mikkel Borg Bjergso, a 38-year-old former high-school science teacher who runs the Danish brewery Mikkeller, stuck his face into a bag of hops and inhaled deeply.

Good job Hipster, instead of teaching students how to use their brains in science class and inspiring them to be our next generation of thinkers, now you can kill the braincells of all those you didn't teach as they cry about their failures into a glass of your overhopped beer brew!

I thought all identical twins were required by law to have the same haircut and maintain the same body proportions? At first glance those two only have a strong resemblance.

The only thing that makes lambics the "least manly" is that Lindemans shiat, which is the kool-aid of beer. A true lambic would make most people gag.

Lindemann's is fruit syrup injected into Bud Light. It's not a lambic. Your second sentence is why there's no market. Sadly.

Pretentious or not, Mikkeller makes a few of my favorite beers.  Had no idea about the backstory, but I did know you was a phantom brewer.

This.

My brother and I are pretty close in age, weight and height. If one of us acted like this, there would be a fist fight that would continue until sense was knocked in.

And they're fighting over a real estate transaction! If there was a girl involved that might make it understandable...

I do believe that is the longest article on craft brewing I have ever read in my entire life.
 
2014-03-30 10:38:52 AM
This is a good story because Mikkellar makes some of the best beer in the world.

I am glad I'm not the first one to point out they come out as obnoxious & pretentious hipster douchebags.

The only boom the 80s had in beer was wine coolers.

On the other hand, in beer-snob circles, demand lambics and other sours is growing and exceeds supply. One of the good bars in Toronto hosted a Cantillion Zwanze Day event featuring nothing but sours, and the tickets sold out in less than 2 minutes. And 2 weeks ago I was visiting Southern California and engaged in an entirely fruitless search for Russian River sours - I was told that to get them, you basically need to get to the store when the truck does.

Mikkeller brews good stuff. Haven't tried Evil Twin. They both sound like twats.

Fark your extra-strong beer.  Here in Ontario, at the LCBO, strong beer is the bane of the alcoholic.  It is the cheapest source of alcohol in the entire LCBO, in terms of alcohol/$, being about $3.25 for half a litre of 10%.  The homeless around here are regularly seen drinking one of the above two.  I drank 2-3 Faxe 10% per day for a few months back when I was an alchy.  There's a reason they call it "rot gut".  One of the store clerks actually warned me "this stuff will rot your stomach".  It literally did.  It burned a hole in my stomach that, to this day, painfully reacts with any amount of alcohol.  So, on the bright side, Faxe turned into a sort of antabuse for me, and cured my alcoholism.
