Mikkeller Oakland Grand Opening on Friday

The big beer news in the East Bay is that Mikkeller Oakland’s grand opening goes down this Friday, August 19, beginning at 4 p.m.

The Danish brewer’s eccentric lineup, and his newer West Coast-produced hoppy stuff, will parachute into the old Trappist Provisions location for at the week’s end. A post on Mikkeller Oakland’s Facebook promises killer brews on draft, and also some desirable bottles for in-house consumption and to-go, so be sure to pop in as soon as you get off work. A quick tease of what could be poured this Friday:

Acid Trip BA White Wine
Ahhh BA White Wine
Nelson Sauvignon Wild Ale BA
Raspberry Trippelbock BA
Recipe 1000 BA Sauternes
Vild BA Bordeaux
Barrel Aged Beer Geek Brunch
Birthday Bruit

So, basically, brew that’s hardly ever made it across the Atlantic. I’m down.

It was announced last month that the beloved and quaint Provisions would transform into a Mikkeller location, and the remodel has occurred gradually in recent weeks, complete with all sorts of Keith Shore artwork (he does all the Mikkeller logos and labels).
