The Mikkeller bar has one of those traditional horseshoe shaped bars we all know and love from Cheers, but we didn’t get to sit at it instead taking a shared table with waiter service (such a good idea for any bar I always think). Mikkeller mainly serve their own brews but they use around a third of their taps for guest beers. I took three to try:
- Dieu Du Ciel’s Peche Mortal, a imperial stout with coffee
- Mikellar’s Crooked Moon Tattoo Stockholm, American stout brewed with figs
- Barrel Brothers Snozberries Taste like Snozberries, a Berliner Weiss with blueberries, raspberries and lactose.
We grabbed an almost empty trolley bus and hung out the back window like the tipsy tourists we were as we waved goodbye to Mikkeller SF. Brewcade is dark and dingy, just how I like my bars, and with a very decent beer list. We enjoyed a few beers, spent a few dollars on games, and then had a leisurely stroll home to Castro.
