Mikkeller Beer Club Discount Code

On a recent trip to Copenhagen I got to visit not one but two venues owned by Danish Beer stalwarts Mikkeller. They’ve got a few tap rooms dotted around Copenhagen, which we went to too, but we also went to the BBQ based collab with the American 3 Floyds brewery based in the meat packing district of the city called Warpigs.

I’ve tried a fair few Mikkeller beers over the years from the infamous Small Bar in Cardiff (RIP), the bottle shop in Penarth and they even sell a couple of cans at M & S.

After having a browse on their website, whilst pondering over a couple of brews to have sent over by snail mail I noticed they do a Mikkeller beer mail. This is a beer subscription where you can have a lucky dip of the latest Mikkeller beers sent to you by post once a month.

I love a suprise and I also love having beers in the house without leaving my doorstep, so I thought I was onto a winner. After finding a Mikkeller beer mail discount code online giving me 50% off my first box, I thought £20 was worth a punt.

Not knowing when delivery would be scheduled, whether it would be a month from signup or the start of the month, I was lucky in that I ordered just a week before the start of the month. A couple of days after signing up for the Mikkeller beer mail I had a notification saying my first box was been scheduled for delivery.

What was in the Mikkeller beer club box

In the Mikkeller beer mail I had the recently launched Viking Kolsche lager with a pretty awesome branded glass for the collab.

There was a mixed bag with a few cans and bottles. There were IPA’s, a vanilla and a chocolate stout at a rather potent 12%, making a perfect dessert (or breakfast) pour. I was chuffed to have a big can of Frank The Tank too, which I got to sample over at Warpigs.

The bottle of the box though was the Spontan series Oregan Plukm. A lovely sour beer made from Plums picked from Oregan in the US. I priced this up on their website and it came in at around £14 for this alone, add that to the £8 I paid for the Frank the Tank in Warpigs and for your £20 investment, you’ve already had that back wtihout the other 7 beers and glass along with delivery all the way from Denmark.

Verdict

Would I recommend the Mikkeller Beer Mail? Too right I would if my first box is anything to go by. With the discount code getting you a 50% discount on your first box then 9 beers, a glass and delivery for £20 means you’re getting some epic beers for not much more than £2 a drink.

I’ve been a cider drinker most of my adult life following the food and drink festivals around South Wales since I can remember and local cider farm open days at Gwynt y Draig along with the infamous cider festival over Llanwono in the summer. Choice of drink used to be Weston’s Organic until they dropped the alcohol % and changed the name to Wyld Wood.

I’ve moved away in the last year or two with my palate changing to spirits and favouring a spiced rum and coke whether its Morgan’s Spiced, Sailor Jerry’s or Kraken if i can find it cheap enough. Even more recently with the mass of street food venue’s and event’s going on i’d much prefer to sip a long drink rather than chug back my own bodyweight in pirate juice with my food. I started trying a few pale ales as i’ve never tried beer before as I didn’t see myself as an old man and thought i’d need to immediately have to purchase a pair of fluffy slippers and smoking jacket even though i’ve lived in a pub most of my life but then again i’d probably seen the sad and boring old guys who who sent me to sleep on more than one shift behind the bar pulling pints when i was a student.

With the likes of Grillstock importing their American style IPA’s at their summer shindigs, street food circus in Cardiff serving Otley Breweries latest barrel, who happen to be located about 2 miles up the road from me and my recent obsession for the ultra cool Brewdog Brewery trying to make my way through the ever changing drink (and food menu, have you tried the horse jerky yet?) i’ve become quite a appreciative non beer drinker.

 

I happened to stumble on a banner on Facebook which is quite unlike me as i avoid any advertising on websites especially Facebook like the plague normally but it was for a box of beers and i’d just got over my headache after a recent trek down to a street food event and still had a taste for a random rocket fuelled, hopey, craft liquid golden white beer! The name was beer52 and they had an awesome deal at the time for first time subscribers with money off the first box and an extra two beers thrown in just because why the hell not.

The box arrived on a Friday (great timing!) and before the cellotape had dropped to the floor half of the box had found it’s prime position in the cooling chamber or fridge to you normal folk to bring my expertly sourced globe trotting IPA’s to optimum beverage tasting coolness.

The first bottle out of the selection delivered was a Berlin BRLO Pale Ale that went lovely with a packet of chilli biltong i picked up on the way home from work that Friday.
