The musician and 80’s pop legend Rick Astley has brewed his own beer with the Danish microbrewery Mikkeller. The beer will be launched April 13th in London in connection with Astley’s sold out concert at Royal Albert Hall.
The whole project started with a rumour that Rick Astley lived in Amager, Copenhagen.
“When I heard the news, I immediately thought we should brew a beer with him,” explains the brewer and founder of Mikkeller, Mikkel Borg Bjergsø, who as a pre-teen had posters of Rick Astley hanging on his wall in his childhood home in Nivå and hits such as ’Never Gonna Give You Up’ and ’Whenever You Need Somebody’ on repeat in the walkman.
“I was a huge fan!,” he says.
