From a media release
Online beer retailer AdelaideBierShop.com.au has hidden an extremely rare Magnum of beer from Danish brewer, Mikkeller somewhere in the city of Adelaide, to celebrate their 2nd Birthday.
Daily clues will be emailed to their “Bier Soaked” eNewsletter database, starting from midday on the 6th of December.
Stella 0 is a festival-beer made for the Danish beer-festival 2009. Containing 10% ABV, it is a mix between a barley wine, a double India pale ale and an American strong ale. This beer delivers a big hop bitterness which is skilfully balanced by a chewy malt-sweetness.
“We were lucky enough to get this donated by a beer importer in Queensland called Innspire,” owner Anton Kastner said.
“They import some fantastic beers into the country and we are very lucky to get our hands on it. If I could get some
for the shop, it would sell for over $120.
“Mikkeller are a really cool, young brewery based in Denmark and are basically two young homebrewers, who in a few years went from hobby brewing at home in the kitchen, to national and international recognition.”
In its first year, 2006, the brewery was named Danish brewery of the year and the fifth best brewery in the world by Ratebeer.
According to Kastner, Stella 0 will age gracefully over time, with a best before date of 2019.
South Australia’s own Beard and Brau brewery has contributed to the treasure trove by filling two 750ml bottles of their
Red Tail Scottish Amber Ale. The bottle is a special only one off by the brewery, hand signed by the brewer.
“We are very lucky to have such a close relationship with this brewery,” Kastner said.
“The head brewer, Chris, is a great guy and awesome brewer. With their fledgling microbrewery
based in Paraf ield, Beard and Brau epitomises craft brewing…. they are adventurous with the styles of beer
the brew and this is no exception.
“Red Tail is a wonderfully creamy and fruity Scottish Amber Ale.”
The treasure hunt will see daily clues emailed out to followers of the Bier Shop. People who want to take part can sign up by emailing [email protected] with BIER TREASURE HUNT as the subject.
