Jeppe Jarnit-Bjergsø is one of our favorite people in Brooklyn. We love his bar, TØRST, and we love the madcap beers he brews under the Evil Twin moniker. Just yesterday we announced a collaboration Beer Making Kit with the brewery - their Bikini Beer, scaled down to the kitchen!
Jeppe, the founder and man behind Evil Twin Brewing, was a physics and English teacher in his native Denmark before starting Copenhagen's Ølbutikken, a highly regarded beer store. He founded Evil Twin in 2010 as a nomadic brewery, then moved it to Brooklyn in 2012 when he relocated there with his family, opening the beer bar TØRST the same year.
The creativity behind Evil Twin's beers is evident in the spectrum of colors present in the five Evil Twin beers we sampled. Those beers were: Justin Blåbær, a Berliner Weiss; Ryan and the Beaster Bunny, a Farmhouse Saison; The Cowboy, a Smoked Porter; Even More Denmark, a Chocolate Stout, and Imperial Donut Break, an Imperial Porter (What other brewer would make a beer with actual glazed donuts and have it taste incredible?). Read on for our tasting notes and be sure to add your own in the comments if you've tried these Evil Twin beers!
