When you think of what makes a beer great, what is the first thing that comes to mind? The most straightforward answer would be the taste! However, for some people, this may not be the only reason. Beer has been around long enough to make it one of the oldest beverages produced by humans. Written records show it during the time of ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia, while chemical tests have unveiled traces in ancient pottery as far back as seven thousand years ago in what we know now as Iran. With the process of brewing dating so far back, it is fair to say that some breweries have their process down to a science. Lets take a look at thirty of the top breweries from around the world. Who knows, you might find a new favorite after checking these out.
Founded by Mikkel Borg Bjergs in Copenhagen, Denmark, this phantom brewery makes the list as it is not only producing and exporting exceptional micro-brews, but has also released over eight hundred different beers. Mikkel and co-founder Kristian Klarup Keller also collaborate with fellow brewers to create some fantastic one-off as well as refined recipes. What makes this company exceptional is that the recipes are sent off to some of the best breweries in the world and the finished product is sent back for tasting and official selection. This process of selection ensures the highest standard of quality.
