MAD Beer is a joint venture brewery by two very significant and innovative profiles within respectively beer and food. Brewer Mikkel Borg Bjergsøe and Chef Jakob Mielcke. The purpose is to combining the techniques and philosophy, from both beer brewing and modern gastronomy.

The first edition of MAD Beer represents the five basic tastes: savoury, bitter, sweet, sour and umami. MAD Beer also features Venencia by the same brewery, (only 200 bottles brewed).

To celebrate the birth of MAD Beer, Mielcke & Hurtigkarl made a special dinner in February, which has given some great reviews. This is a, french resume from a great article written by food journalist Maria Canabal.” Mielcke et Borg sont des précurseurs, des visionnaires qui aiment se défier mutuellement. Ils savent attiser notre curiosité. Ce qui est un don. Ils brisent des tabous. Ce qui est une force“. Read the remaining here.

We also received great reviews in the Danish newspaper, Information and magazine Gastro. Thank you!!!

Today we use MAD Beer in exciting contexts. Recently at the Copenhagen Beer Celebration, when the beers was accompanied with snacks by Jakob Mielcke. See photoes bellow.

MAD Beer will also appear at this year’s Roskilde Festival. Textile designer Margrethe Odgaard and Jacob Mielcke presents “Palete Palette” -a tasting dinner of chocolate with the same basic tastes as the MAD Beer. You can read more about the event here.
