It's official. Craft beer is the new mixology.
Case in point: Mikkeller Bar, a two-story palace of carefully curated suds, now softly open in the 'Loin. Scope the new math.
2 cask handles pouring Magnolia Billy Sunday Bitter and Iron Springs Epiphany Ale.
40 taps of crazy-rare brews from around the world, including Saison Dupont and Freigeist Abraxxxas Peated.
4 exclusive Mikkeller beers you can only get here. Unfamiliar? Mikkeller is a craft brewery in Copenhagen whose founder co-owns this joint.
30 seats at the bar upstairs. The exposed brick walls are decked with playful murals from the same artist who does the artwork on Mikkeller's labels.
5 varieties of housemade sausage built to be enjoyed alongside brew-friendly favorites (soft pretzel rolls, steak frites) and a selection of cheeses that rotates daily.
Oh, and 1.5 — that's the number of seconds you will spend debating whether to get started on that project or email your friends to invite them to check this place out this weekend.
Parking: Metered street.
Grand opening: The bar and restaurant officially opens on August 9. Which means longer hours and special events. (Think tastings in the downstairs beer cellar.)
