Mikkeller, a craft brewery with brewpubs around the world, is considering a permanent location in Portland. The big-deal Danish brewery will move into the old Burnside Brewing space this June for a series of pop-ups, The Oregonian reports.
The brewery isn’t totally ready to commit to a new, permanent brewpub, but it may in the future; the Mikkeller folks will pour beer in the brewery space through the end of the year to explore the possibility of opening in Portland indefinitely. For now, Mikkeller will have 23 taps at the former brewery, as well as Japanese food.
Mikkeller is known for its innovative beers, often using culinary infusions like fresh mango or seaweed. The brand has eight actual breweries and 43 total locations around the world.
Mikkeller has partnered with Chefstable, the restaurant group behind Ox, St. Jack, and Lardo. It’s been a big week for the brand: Owner Kurt Huffman also announced plans to open six restaurants in Lake Oswego in 2021.
