The King’s Arms, in Bethnal Green, London, is to host the first UK event for Mikkeller’s Baghaven project this Friday, the brewer’s move into rustic farmhouse ales.

Mikkeller BaghavenIn the brewer’s own words: “Baghaven represents the pinnacle of art and science, old- world and new world, primitive and contemporary.”

The ales promise to be innovative and unique, while using age-old traditions to set a new standard and bring an iconic new line of Danish heritage to the forefront of wild brewing.

The KIng’s Arms will be welcoming head brewer Ehren Schmidt on Friday evening (October 12) from 6pm, alongside a tap takeover of six of his finest brews.
