WILK Friday BeerBuzz–21 Oct 2011 Mikkeller Beer Geek Brunch Weasel w/Mary Tellie


I always like pushing the envelope with tastes and ingredients in our show beers, and today I thought I’d march out the most unusual ingredient that we have perhaps ever tasted in a beer. Coffee….but this isn’t just any ordinary coffee and this wasn’t just an ordinary beer either.

wilkOur beer today was Mikkeller Beer Geek Brunch Weasel…an Imperial Oatmeal Stout that is brewed with coffee…but not just any coffee.  This unusual brew uses a “special” coffee called Civet Coffee…and boy is it special.  Regarded as one of the most expensive coffees in the world, this coffee is made from the droppings of a Southeast Asian weasel-like Civet cat.  As the story goes, these animals eat only the best and ripest coffee berries, digest those beans and then the beans are collected from their droppings to make the coffee…and ultimately the beer.

Now don’t get too lost in the story of the bean.  Yes it’s a humorous story, and yes I couldn’t resist featuring it on the show…but keep in mind this is a really good Imperial Oatmeal Stout.  Brewed by gypsy brewer Mikkel Borg Bjergsø (aka Mikkeller), this big 10.9% ABV brew is definitely one you should try for yourself.


to Nancy, John, Joe, and Bosco for yet another fun Friday.

The Friday BeerBuzz…bringing good beers and good people together.
