The story behind Evil Twin is partly a tale of sibling rivalry but it’s also one of world domination.
Twins Jeppe Jarnit-Bjergsø and Mikkel Borg-Bjergsø grew up in a small town on the outskirts of Copenhagen. Both showed similar interests from an early age, including a love affair with all things beer.
Jeppe opened a bottle shop (Ølbutikken) and beer importation business (Drikkeriget) in Copenhagen in 2005. Mikkel then started a brewery (Mikkeller) in 2006. The brothers’ ventures were each successful and it all seemed fairly harmonious until 2010 when Mikkel started opening bars in Copenhagen. Something happened to their relationship at this time and Jeppe responded by starting his own brewery. Evil Twin was born.
After a boatload of success across Europe, Jeppe, his wife and two children relocated to New York in 2012; to establish the Evil twin brand and make New York the beer (as well as the hipster) capital of the world. Since then Jeppe has gained a seemingly rock star like status among craft beer aficionados, creating some of the most sought after beer on the planet.
It’s hard to believe that Evil Twin was just Jeppe’s way of having a dig at his brother. It’s too well organised, it’s too big and it’s just too bloody good. There’s no doubt Evil Twin will continue to be at the forefront of the global craft beer movement for some time to come.
Nomader Weisse is Evil Twin’s take on a traditional Berliner Weisse, Sharp, clean and refreshing, it’s the perfect summer brew and a fitting complex and challenging beer to kick off the return of BeerBods Plus.
