Mikkeller, and its founder Mikkel Borg Bjergsø, are proud to announce their first East Coast brewery Mikkeller Brewing NYC (a.k.a Mikkeller NYC). MKNYC opened March 2018 at Citi Field, in Flushing, Queens. Mikkeller, the renowned Denmark-based gypsy brewery, opened its first U.S. Brewery in San Diego, CA in 2016 and has been looking for the right opportunity to create an East Coast brewery ever since.
Following the success of Mikkeller’s ballpark beers (Henry Hops and Say Hey Sally) at Citi Field this season, Bjergsø jumped at the opportunity to make Flushing the New York City hub for Mikkeller. “Since launching Henry and Sally at Citi Field in April, the Mikkeller team and I have come to appreciate how baseball fans in Flushing are quite similar to Mikkeller fans around the world. Devotees like The 7 Line Army are fanatical about the quality and performance of their team and their community. They invest time, effort and emotion into supporting the orange and blue and we look forward to sharing this passion when they visit Mikkeller Brewing NYC. Our new location at Citi Field provides convenient year-round access for craft beer and food fans from the five boroughs and beyond. We are thrilled to be associated with this wonderful fan base, the Flushing and Willets Points neighborhoods and New York City.”
