Just look at the beautifully lit bar with all those beers on tap!

And their decor LOL. As for food, we got pickled vegetables, fries, and a salad.

House Pickled Vegetables

Is it weird that I don’t like pickled cucumbers, but I like all other pickled vegetables? (I do like regular cucumbers though)

Curry Fries

They’re known for these, but we thought they were meh. The sauce just tasted like plain packaged curry and it made the fries soggy quickly. This was the only food item we didn’t like.

Roasted Root Vegetable Salad

This salad had acorn squash, parsnip, turnip, beet, and arugula with a white balsamic vinaigrette.

And of course, beer was a must 🙂 They also have a 55 oz beer goblet for you big beer drinkers !!

Mikkeller Bar

I loved the interior of this place. The brick walls, high ceilings, cool artwork, and lighting gave off a hip and laidback vibe.

They have over 40 beers on tap, served in different temperatures according to the brew. I especially liked how they feature a lots of Belgians, which are my fave! If you like sours, they even have a sour room downstairs.

They also offer snacks, appetizers, entrees, and dessert (you can pass on their risotto though). Next time, I want to try their hot dogs because they have their own sausage company!

If you’re a beer lover, I definitely recommend coming here with a group of friends to try their vast beer selection!!

Beer and “The Cumberland” Cocktail

I don’t remember what beer my boyfriend had, but I had one of their cocktails. “The Cumberland” ($13) had hendrick’s gin, fresh lime, fresh cucumber juice, and ginger. It was very refreshing!

However, their seafood was disappointing. The live sea urchin (MP) lacked in flavor and texture, and the ceviche ($13, not pictured) was good but fairly small. To be frank, I’d only come back here during happy hour for some drinks and oysters.
