The battling twins of craft beer

There are a set of twins from Denmark both of whom are brewers and they haven’t spoken to each other in over a year.

One, Mikkel Borg Bjergso, still lives in Denmark and is the owner of Mikkeller, a brewery and pub chain (I visited their pub in San Francisco). The other, Jeppe Jarnit-Bjergso, now lives in Brooklyn and runs Evil Twin.

The article refers to both brothers as phantom brewers, that is they don’t actually have their own physical brewery but instead develop recipes that are then produced by various breweries around the world. It gives them the ability to create new beers without worrying about dealing with the mundane issues associated with brewing.
