(Aberdeen, SCOTLAND) – From the Brewdog blog, “The word on the street is that on the 23rd November 2008 Mikkel (www.mikkeller.dk) arrived at BrewDog Brewery on a cold, snowy Sunday morning.
According to the legend 2 of Europe’s most experimental, boundary pushing brewers combined forces to produce a rebellious beer that combined their respective talents and brewing skills.
The 12.5% Barley Wine fermented well, the champagne yeast drew it ever closer to 12.5%. The beer was brewed with a single hop variety and was going to be partially aged in oak casks.”
The label also mentions that the beer is 25% aged in Scotch and 75% aged in Whiskey.
It is interesting to see that Preiss Imports got the right to import Devine Rebel as The Shelton Brothers typically import Mikkeller’s beers. I always wonder how those negotiations play out. The Brewdog guys bottled this on May 8 so look for it to hit shelves in the States, although in a limited manner, sometime this summer. OR if you can’t wait, and don’t mind paying international shipping, you might be able to order it from the website as they do have them for sale right now.
