|At War Pigs, a joint venture of Mikkeller|
and Three Floyds.
|Impromptu tour of War Pigs. Note the hat.|
|The ink-stained wretches gather. Pete Brown|
and Stephen Beaumont.
|Martyn Cornell and Ron Pattinson.|
|Erik Lund, Carlsberg brewmaster.|
|Growing barley indoors.|
|An 1883 bottle from which...|
|...yeast wranglers like this cultured viable cells.|
|And made a beer we were all there to taste.|
|Stan Hieronymus and Evan Rail tasting the beer.|
|One of the four oldest (1847) lager cellars|
beneath the brewery.
|Bottles I discovered rummaging around one|
of the old cellars. These probably date to
the 1920s or '30s, according to our guide.
Update: probably earlier (see comments).
*This trip paid was for by the Carlsberg Foundtion--basically entirely. They didn't pick up the tab at War Pigs, but assume they paid for everything else.
