In 2006 he was a math and physics teacher that started experimenting with hops, malt and yeast back home in his kitchen in Copenhagen. Today Mikkel Borg BjergsÃ¸ exports his micro brewed beer to 40 different countries and is internationally acclaimed as one of the most innovative and cutting edge brewers in the world
But what happened in between?
In the past beer was just something he drank to get drunk when partying with his friends - the cheaper the better. Studying to become a teacher Mikkel got a job at a local cafÃ© and here he was introduced to foreign beers like Chimay and Hoegarden. He quickly developed a taste for the foreign drops and founded a beer club with some friends where they tasted and rated different kinds of beers. Later on, when working as a physics and math teacher, he would sometimes stop by for at beer at a pub on his way home from work. There he tasted an india pale ale from the Danish brewery BrÃ¸ckhouse and got the idea that he could save a lot of money, if he could brew a beer like that himself - and maybe even win a blind test competition at the beer club.
