Wanna be a part of the
The Viking Club is Mikkeller Brewing San Diego’s Premier Beer club. While it’s all about the epic beer and the Viking camaraderie, there’s a bunch of other special perks to being in the club. There are three tiers to the Viking club: Viking, Berserker and jarl, with each tier offering a unique experience. Viking level of the club offers an intensive look at the world of Mikkeller beer. Berserker level is for those who can never have enough beer in their cellar and are looking for the next big thing. Jarl level is invitation only and for current Vikings who are searching for those whales and craving ultra exclusivity. Regardless of the tier, you are in for a year filled with a myriad of Viking exclusive events and beer. Choose wisely, you wouldn’t want to miss out on any of the fun, or beer.
This a LIMITED VOLUME annual membership
REGISTRATION BEGINS APRIL 1
Viking (Tier 1)
Viking level of the club offers an intensive look at the world of Mikkeller beer.
Bourbon BA Stroopwafel Shake
Inspired by stroopwafel cookies, we took our decadent Imperial Stout aged in Woodford Reserve barrels for twelve months and infused fresh toasted waffles, ceylon cinnamon sticks, nutmeg, vanilla, and caramel. Incredibly luscious and deep with flavor – it is the liquid embodiment of steaming a stroopwafel above a hot cup of coffee
Oak-fermented Farmhouse Ale w/ Raspberry & 2nd-use Peaches
A great thing about utilizing fruit in our wild beer cellar is the chance to age consecutive blends on the same fruit to coax delicate flavors and characters. We chose to recycle the wonderful Masumoto peaches from ‘Sur Ferskener’ through a choice selection of young, barrel-fermented farmhouse ale. After a few weeks we added raspberry to include a bursting brightness and layered fruity compliment. Subtle oaky structure with mild acidity and a dry palate.
Barrel-aged Blonde Barleywine
A real dive into experimentation in our cellar! We designed a pale barleywine with moderate NW varietal late hopping and an ever so subtle smoke addition. We then filled a handful of second-use bourbon barrels that had previous held our Sultan’s Curse Imperial Stout. By layering obscurity with adventure, we find a fun connection of spices, earthiness, and deep malty warmth.
Barrel Aged Belgian Dark Strong
Some of our favorite beers to age in spirited American Oak casks are Belgian-inspired ales. A beautiful dance of classic Belgian fruitiness and toasted coconut layers shine alongside the warming bourbon-soaked backbone. Caramel candies and chocolate boast, with supporting layers of orange and banana.
Barrel Aged Flops on Deck
Stay tuned. . . there are some sweet things developing
Fruited sour variant
Stay tuned. . .we only harvest the freshest fruit for our fruited sours.

Berserker membership includes all 12 bottles and benefits from tier 1
Double Barrel-aged Imperial Stout
Never previously released, we have been quietly awaiting the unveiling of this massive, downright absurd Imperial Stout from its rest. Almost eighteen months ago, we put an unadulterated base stout in Whiskey barrels to age, before transferring to Brandy barrels to settle for the remaining eight months. Huge. With minimal carbonation, enjoy around 60*F for best experience. Our favorite barrel-aging project thus far.
Trippel Aged in Frederiksdal Cherry Wine Puncheons
If there is one thing we love, it is cherry. Exploring different varietals, applications, and in this case, the liquid. Harkening back to our Danish roots, we tracked down some gorgeous 500L Frederiksdal KirsebÃ¦rvin casks to bring into the cellar. We decided to rest our Bourbon Barrel-aged Belgian Trippel in them for an additional 9 months to create a truly elegant display of rich cherry depth and complex spice layers. A mild carbonation allows a full delve into the palate experience.
4 750 mL bottles total plus:

Trippelbock with Raspberry Aged in Cognac Barrels
A marriage of fruit, wood, and complex malt composition. We allowed our Trippelbock with Raspberry to meet some of the most luxury-defining Cognac barrels we could find. A befuddling display of toasted, rich malt layers and woven berry sweetness dance with a warm, fruit spirit backbone.
Rum Barrel Aged Trae Blod
Our quest to perfect the indulgent Sunday morning brunch craving, Traeblod embodies all that is pure maple, coffee, roasty amazingness. A long sleep in freshly emptied Rum barrels brings out unparalleled amounts of maple sap and cinnamon complexities, while further integrating the deep coffee toast. A real treat. Best enjoyed by drinking.
