Mikkeller NYC now brewing in Queens
Denmark-based craft brewer Mikkeller has expanded to New York City with Mikkeller Brewing NYC, a 10,000-square-foot brewery, taproom and dining space at Citi Field in Flushing, Queens, open to the public year-round. This is Mikkeller’s first U.S. location outside of California and the latest addition to its lineup of bars, bottle shops and breweries worldwide.
WHAT’S ON TAP At the heart of the brewery are 60 rotating beers on tap pouring Mikkeller NYC—including Henry Hops IPA and Say Hey Sally pilsner, two of their signature "ballpark beers"—Mikkeller SD, Mikkeller Denmark and select friends' brews, which can be enjoyed at the bar or in the 120-seat communal dining space. Towering over the tables, just steps away, is a vast beer production area open to public tours, where a 20-barrel brewhouse, several vertically stacked 20-barrel fermenters and a canning line allow Mikkeller to provide fresh and varied brews on a weekly basis. Cans, bottles and merchandise, all designed by Mikkeller art director Keith Shore, are also available to take home from an on-site shop along with varieties from other select breweries. NYC BITES Eats courtesy of local New York restaurants complement the tap list, such as Pat LaFrieda Meat Purveyors’ all-beef hot dogs and beef jerky and Whitmans’ East Villi Cheesesteak. Great Northern Food Hall’s Claus Meyer offers Nordic fare, such as his Famous Pork Sandwich with apple, pickled cabbage, gherkins, parsley, pork cracklings and dijon dressing, and Queens’ own Unidentified Flying Chickens rounds out the menu with bulgogi fries and empanadas. Next to the tap room, a handmade, custom steel + glass-enclosed dining room with reclaimed-wood ceiling beams is available for private events. BEER BY DESIGN Keith Shore's bold, colorful artwork, sought after by Mikkeller fans and design aficionados alike, is found throughout the expansive space in the form of larger-than-life murals, including a tremendous window treatment visible from the street depicting baserunner Henry sliding towards home, with catcher Sally defending the plate. Conceived by Mikkeller NYC and longtime Mikkeller collaborators, Danish design firm Femmes Regionales, the brewery's design features Nordic touches such as white birch furniture, board and batten millwork and beveled black and white metro tiles (a hallmark of Mikkeller locations around the globe) behind the bar.
