It was with great excitement that we received the news that a Mikkeller Bar (facebook) was going to pop up along Prinsep Street (120A Prinsep Street, Singapore 187937), just across from Prinsep Street Presbyterian Church.
A few years ago, I’d stopped over in Copenhagen and sampled a few in a basement in Vesterbro
No Geek Breakfast (or other meal) on the menu unfortunately. Since the Bugis Brown, Prinsep Pilsner, and Waterloo Wit were available at no cost, I got a free plastic cup of pilsner, and thought to return to get a lambic.
Unfortunately, it was scorching out there. And with little shade (except along the sides of containers) the beer gained temperature very quickly. Dilemma: sip on rapidly warming beer, or gulp the stuff down like it was nothing but tepid tap water?
Cracked open Paul Ricoeur’s Memory, History, Forgetting while waiting for friends to reply if they were headed down.
In the end, the Tiger Beer-guzzler (a Korean, by way of part-explanation) decided that a free Mikkeller wasn’t worth the effort. I was amused. It was very much like how, when you present some people a pearl of infinite worth – the gospel, and for free, and they snort and trample it underfoot.
Ah well, next time perhaps!
