Hyper-creative, acclaimed ‘gypsy brewer’ Mikkeller has partnered with Domino & Ribbon Music artists to create a series of custom, limited edition brews, each lovingly and collaboratively flavored, designed, and produced over the course of the last 12 months.

The brews incorporate artists’ favorite flavor profiles, and each artist involved has worked with the Mikkeller brewing team and art director to make a recipe that represents their tastes – both aesthetically and fundamentally.

The first two brews made available for purchase come courtesy of Hamilton Leithauser and The Pastels.

Hamilton Leithauser, lead singer of The Walkmen, released his debut solo album Black Hours via Ribbon Music in June of last year.

Seminal Glaswegian band The Pastels released Slow Summits via Domino in 2013.

Beers created by White Lung and Real Estate will soon be available. Stay tuned for more in the series. 

The beer is available via Mikkeller’s regular distributors, on their website, and in their Mikkeller-owned bars. Some beers may also be made available in selected restaurants and bars globally.
