My 'Viking's Return' got 2nd of 50 at Wetherspoon Real Ale Festival 2008!

Earlier this year I travelled to Jennings Brewery in Cockermouth, North England to brew 60.000 liter of my english amber ale 'Viking's Return'. The beer featured at the pub chain Wetherspoons 'Real Ale Festival' in November. With 50 different beers at the festival 'Viking's Return' got a second spot in the competition, only beaten by Australian Black Wattle from Barons Brewery. Cheers!

Opfording til Håndbryggere: ´Beer Geek Breakfast Challenge 2008´ hane til European Beer Festival 2008

´Kære Bryggere
Som I sikkert alle er bekendte med har Mikkeller annonceret Mikkeller Beer Geek Breakfast Challenge på European Beer Festival 2008.
Der står derfor i skrivende stund ganske givet en masse lækker sort øl rundt omkring og koger/bobler/lagrer.
Ølministeriet på håndbryggerstanden skal derfor, i samarbejde med Mikkeller, opfordre alle som har tænkt sig at deltage MBGBC til at sende deres bud på en BGB-fortolkning på Håndbryggerstandens ChallengeHane, så publikum på festivalen kan få en chance for at smage det lækre sorte stads I går og brygger på!
Vi håber meget at I vil bakke op om ChallengeHanen. Hvis I vil sende øl til Hanen kan I skrive til ølministeren på email:
kslottved@yahoo.dk
Fade kan lånes hos Maltbazaren eller hos Herlev Håndbryggerlaug. Alle fade bliver, som det er tilfældet med alle andre øl på standen, godtgjort med 250-300kr. og bryggerne får selvfølgelig et udstillerarmbånd der giver indgang alle dage.
Venlig hilsen Ølministeriet og Mikkeller´

Charity Auction raised DKK 52.000 (US$11.000) for Mozambique!!!!!!

Ølbutikken and Mikkellers charity auction for a school-democracy project in Mozambique is over.
In total we rasied approx. DKK 52.000 or US$11.000!!!!!
Highest bid was €579,- making it one of - if not the most expensive danish beer ever!!!

Presse release in Danish:

Øl-auktion indtjente 52.000 til børn i Mozambique
4300 kroner. Så meget lød højeste bud på for en enkel flaske af Mikkellers ’Barrel Aged X Imperial Stout 2007’, da sidste hammerslag i mikrobryggeriets velgørenheds-auktion faldt søndag nat. I alt blev 40 nummererede og signerede flasker solgt og indtjente i alt 52.000 kroner. Alle pengene går ubeskåret til Mellemfolkelig Samvirkes projekt ’Borgerrettigheder i grundskolen’.
Projektet skal fremme forståelsen af demokrati blandt børn og unge i Mozambique, så begrebet kan rodfæste sig og blomstre i landet på sigt. Ambitionen er blandt andet, at elever, lærere og forældre på 15 skoler i det sydlige Mozambique ved udgangen af 2010 skal have modtaget undervisning i demokratiets principper og praksis.
Mikkellers øl, der er produceret eksklusivt til formålet, har lagret i otte måneder på sherryfad og har en alkoholprocent på 15.0 % vol.
Auktionen startede den 31. marts og sluttede 13. april, klokken 00.00 på Ølbutikkens hjemmeside

Democracy for Children charity auction
  • The cause
MS Mozambique wants to strengthen and develop the teaching of democracy in Mozambican grade schools in order for the idea of democracy and self-determination to take root in the poor country in the southern part of Africa.
Democracy needs to be a part of children’s every day life. That is what is the idea behind MS’s Mozambican project, ‘Civil Rights in Grade Schools’, whose objective is to make democracy a way of life in Mozambique in the southern part of Africa, for generations to come. “Children need to understand and exercise democracy in their daily lives, if the seed is to grow and flower in the long run in Mozambique,” says MS Mozambique’s director, Ulla Strøbech.
The first democratic election in Mozambique was held in 1994 after almost 500 years of Portuguese colonialism and 17 years of civil war and violence. Since then, Mozambicans have been to the ballot boxes in 1999 and 2004. A proportionately high percentage voted at these elections, which proved that the citizens of this poor country had learned how to vote, but besides that Mozambicans are very bad at exercising their democratic rights.
MS Mozambique wants to change that. “We envisage boys and girls, women and men becoming better prepared to take an active part in local government”, emphasises Ulla Strøbech. MS Mozambique’s project, ‘Civil Rights in Grade School’, which is a part of MS’ s overall vision of strengthening and building up local democracy, aims
  • to produce more handbooks and instructions about democracy for teachers by the end of 2008.
  • to start a pilot project in the Gaza province, which focuses on teaching democracy in southern Mozambique by the end of 2008.
  • that students, teachers and parents at 15 schools in southern Mozambique have been taught the principles and practices of democracy by the end of 2010.
  • that teaching material about democracy is developed, tested and promoted to be used in the national educational system.
  • that the school board can plan their own budget for their schools and control that the money is spent in the right places, by the end of 2010. MS Mozambique collaborates with two local organisations, UDEBA and FECIV which have many years of experience in teaching about civil rights in Mozambican grade schools.
All the money from this auction goes directly to this project in Mozambique.
  • The auction
Mikkel, head brewer and owner of Mikkeller and Michael and Jeppe, owners of Denmark’s most specialized beer store Ølbutikken, conceived the brilliant idea of brewing a special beer to be sold at auction to raise money for this project. So they created a special, 8 month sherry cask barrel-aged version of Mikkel’s rare and delicious X Imperial Stout brewed exclusively for the beer festival in Valby, Denmark in May 2007. This is a one-time, very limited edition - only 40 bottles (75cl champagne bottle) are available! Each bottle has been numbered and signed by brewer Mikkel, and 100% of the proceeds will go directly to the school democracy project in Mozambique.
If you're interested in acquiring one of these rare beers in helping the school kids of Mozambique, please complete the form below and making sure to include all the information. Everyone is welcome to bid, but please note that if you win a bottle it must either be picked up in person at Ølbutikken, Copenhagen, Denmark or can be shipped with freight charges added to the final bid amount. Winning bidders must pay by cash or bank transfer only (bank fees must be paid by the buyer), so please make sure that you can do that before bidding. All bids will be anonymous. At the conclusion of the auction, we'll contact the winning bidders to acquire billing information and to coordinate delivery of the beer.
  • The details
First, one bid is for one bottle! Highest bid will get bottle number 1, second highest bottle number 2 down to 40th highest bid that will get bottle number 40. On top of that highest bidder will not only get bottle number 1, but will also get one bottle of Mikkeller X Imperial Stout 2006 plus one bottle of Mikkeller X Imperial Stout 2007 (both 33cl)! The auction will run for 14 days. Lowest winning bid (40th highest bid) will be visible here on our homepage, so that you will always know what you at least must bid in order to get a bottle. After the first week of the auction all 40 bids will be visible for 1 day and thereafter only the lowest winning bid will be visible again until the end of the auction.
The 40 bottles will be displayed at Ølbutikken during the auction.
If you have any questions about this auction or have any trouble submitting your bid, please write to us at mail@olbutikken.dk.
And remember, this is for a great cause….. so please bid generously!
Thank you,
Mikkel, Michael & Jeppe
P.S. Thanks to the Shelton Bros for technical assistance hosting this auction!
