    I was just wondering if anyone knows the answer to this...when more Mikkeller batches get released (say for example Beer Hop Breakfast, Hop Bomb 2011, Hvedegoop), is that because these beers were rebrewed, or because it is old stock that has been sitting around in some warehouse for years?

    Cheers

    Generally it's the former, but occasionally it's the latter.

    Beer Hop Breakfast is in rotating production, and the 750ml bottles of Hvedegoop are new (the previous batch was made at 3 Floyds and was sold in 22oz bombers). Not sure about the Hop Bomb, but doesn't sound promising...

    Thanks for the info. The label dating is ambiguous (e.g. stating that the beer expires in 2014 but I already know they often put 1.5+ year dating on their IPAs so...)

    My recommendation is to find the oldest review on Ratebeer that mentions the BB date and go from there. The beers are generally available in Denmark first, and those guys tend to frequent the other site more than here.
