Drinks for New Years Eve by Mikkeller & Friends Bottle Shop
As we bring 2016 to a gracious end and welcome the new 2017, let us here at the shop guide you with our top choices to celebrate this occasion with style!
As 2016 has been a heavy year of working hard, it's time to get yourself into the party mood. Our way to unwind and kick off an evening is, with a glorious bottle of Mikkeller Spirit: Dry Hopped Botanical GIn.
This tradition gin with a twist is the best way to get started. All of the clean herbal notes, with a bone dry finish, of a London dry Gin smashed together with a healthy dry hopping of Simcoe. The result is the essential party starter followed by a big citrus/mandarin fruit finish. Our recommendation is to accompany this tasty spirit with a healthy slice of orange, a few whole szechuan peppercorns, ice and your favourite tonic.
Next it's time to sit down with some food and your closest circle of friends and family. We know that this time of the year is all about rich fatty foods with all the sides to match. To cut through the weight of all our favourite food, we recommend the latest SpontanBerliner Passionfuit.
This blend of 2 popular styles of sours paired with the tropical passion fruit come together to deliver a sharp acidic edge to cleanse and refresh the palate, then the after taste of passion fruit leaves you wanting another sip. Coming in at a modest 4.4% means that it's the perfect beer to have a few of to share over the table for dinner.
Finally, for us there is only one way to celebrate midnight. This year we saw the opening of our very first brewery in San Diego, and they have been killing it since day one.
In honour of all their efforts this year, we raise a healthy bottle of the classic beer 'George!'
This hard hitting monster Imperial stout comes in at 10.9%, and it's the best way to start 2017 the way you mean to continue. It's a rich flavour balance of vanilla, coffee and chocolate is delivered in the best way possible for a party......in an 65cl bottle of joy!
Swing by to get the last of your brews for this special night, we are happy to help find the perfect combination of beers to help you get through this special night.
Thank you for 2016, it's been great.....but we think 2017 will be even better!
