Mikkeller Baghaven Bière des Champs (Blend #1)732003232095
Mikkeller Baghaven is an exploration of spontaneous fermentation influenced by local terroir, crafting barrel-aged Danish Wild Ales and Rustic Shipyard Ales with native microflora on the Copenhagen harbor front. Baghaven is home to twelve large oak foeders, ranging in size from 3000 to 7000 liters, and over fifty 225-liter California Chardonnay barrels.
Bière des Champs is inspired by the beers brewed on the farms of rural Belgium to nourish field workers during hot summer months. We took a grist bill consisting of Belgian pilsner malt, flaked wheat, and malted spelt and fermented it with a very unique blend of yeast. The addition of generous amounts of hops from the Alsace region of France gives the beer a grassy quality. Just prior to bottling we added our farmhouse Brettanomyces strain to produce carbonation and a unique rustic character.
