Impression (印象):

I have drink Mikkeller’s beers a lot and always wanted to go to the new Taipei bar. Finally I have the chance to do so. The bar is located north of BeiMen (北門) MRT Station, at the brink of the famous DiHua Street (迪化街).

平常喝過許多米凱樂的啤酒, 這次總算有機會到台北的新開酒吧. 酒吧位在北門站北邊靠近迪化街.

My first impression about the bar is its brightness and colorfulness. Unlike Tasting Room (啜飲室) and many US bars that prefer dim light, Mikkeller Bar Taipei is bright and colorful, matching the beer’s label style.

我對米凱樂酒吧的第一印象是它的明亮和鮮豔色彩, 非常不同於啜飲室以及一般美國酒吧的較暗燈光. 明亮和鮮豔色彩跟米凱樂啤酒標籤設計非常一致.

I like the combination of colorful handles and rags. 我非常喜歡彩色的手柄和
彩色的抹布一起.

The bar also has a very hipster atmosphere, with cool chalk drawing and even a middle finger.

酒吧也有非常雅痞的氣氛, 像黑板塗鴉, 甚至一個中指.

The front bar only has 4 chairs. However there’s a spacious second floor, perfect for friend gathering.

雖然吧檯只有四個椅子, 二樓非常寬敞, 適合朋友聚在一起喝酒.

As of the beers, one thing I really like is the staff gives you a new class every time you sample a beer. I’ve tried:

我非常喜歡酒吧人員每次試酒都給你一個新杯子. 最後我喝了:

  • #10: Warpigs Varg Tass with Seabuckthorn. (戰豬酸啤)
  • #24: Peter, Paul and Mary pale ale. (民歌你我他艾爾)
  • #12: Spells DIPA (double IPA 愛的魔幻).
  • #18: Porter.

All is as fresh as it can be. My personal favorite is the Spells DIPA. Perfect golden color with not too fruity fragrance, solid taste without being too bitter.

每個生啤都很新鮮. 我個人最喜歡愛的魔幻 DIPA. 完美的金橙色, 不會太水果的香氣, 飽滿的口感及不會太苦的酒花.

Porter.

The only thing that bothers me a little bit is I have to get up and walk to the corner to get water myself. Also having a beer information sheet will be great to prepare what I will get for my nose and mouth (I personally also enjoy learning about a beer’s background).

只有一點美中不足的是我必須起來走到角落倒水. 並且有一個酒介紹單能讓我事先想像喝的啤酒香味和味道 (我個人也喜歡知道每一個啤酒的背景來由).

Conclusion 結論

Mikkeller Bar Taipei is definitely a great bar for regular visit. The colorful, hipster atmosphere, spacious space and great beers fit well together, even though it can be too cool for visitors to guess beers and get their own water : -)

米凱樂台北酒吧絕對值得常常光臨. 其鮮豔色彩, 雅痞氣氛, 寬敞室內及讚生啤很好的結合在一起. 不過讓客人自己走去倒水和猜啤酒就有點酷過頭了 🙂
