Berlinerville - hipster white beer from Berlin at Mikkeller

Summerish by definition and refreshing by nature, it’s time for the berliner weisse to warm us up for the hot season. Having the superpower to put you in a relaxed mood, berliner weisse is literally the coolest beer style. As the name indicates, it originates in Berlin, all the way back to the 1600s, and by the end of the 1800s, it was the most popular alcoholic drink in the German city. Let’s give it a go and see how the modern berliner weisse has evolved in its long history.

The event takes place from 17th to 19th of May at Mikkeller Bucharest from 17.00 to 23.00
