The Ultimate Craft Beer Nerd’s Card Game

We are a covetous bunch. CTWW is a running archive of our earthly wants.

We can’t think of any better way to whittle away the hours this upcoming winter than holing up in a corner of The Alibi Room with Mikkeller’s Hip Hops Beer Card Game.

This is the ultimate beer-nerd’s card game. It’s easy to learn; the matches are short (15-25 mins); and this first edition deck features over 40 breweries from around the world, including Danish cult brewers To Øl, Warpigs Brewpub and, of course, Mikkeller.

Sadly, it looks like the first run of the cards has already sold out, but we’ve bookmarked it and crossed a few fingers for more. While we wait, we’re committing the rules of the game to (muscle) memory by busting a move along to the silly instructional video below.
