Let’s get supa dupa fly on the Windowsill today!

I’d like to get to know ya so I can show ya… a little bit about the great Missy “Misdemeanor” Elliott. The Virginia native overcame a very tough upbringing to become a true pioneer in the hip hop game for women. You must know her hits, like “The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly),” “Work It,” “Get Ur Freak On,” “One Minute Man,” and many others. Now, the First Lady of Hip-Hop (sorry to all the pretenders to the throne, new and old) is commemorated on a beer from Mikkeller Brewing San Diego, and I was excited to try it!

While Missy Elliot couldn’t stand the rain against her window, I really enjoyed having the Misty Elliott on my sill. Supa dupa juicy. Supa dupa hazy. Supa dupa strong with that ABV. For me, though, it was supa dupa smooth for a triple IPA. Not sure what hops, but whatever the recipe, I really enjoyed it. There’s also that label art from Keith Shore, perfectly “Mikkellerizing” the Queen in her inflated purple suit. Don’t put this beer down. Instead, you should flip the Misty Elliott and reverse it into your mouth hole. Cheers!

Got some skillful magic on the Windowsill today!

Last time I had A Mikkeller on the sill, we talked about Mikkeller’s new San Diego location. This time, let’s talk about their even newer New York brewery. It’s located in Queens, New York, smack dab in the middle of Citi Field. While there’s no good reason to go see the Mets play these days (sorry, Mets fans), you should definitely take the time to go check out Mikkeller. It includes a 10,000 square foot brewery and restaurant, with a 20 bbl brewhouse and a lot of single batch fermenters. They have canning line too, as well as 60 taps. Plenty of beer to enjoy there, or to take home with you! The best part? It’s open year round! Even when the Mets aren’t playing, you can go have some good beer!

Today’s brew actually didn’t come from Mikkeller NYC The Staff Magician was brewed in the San Diego facility, and my good friend @crisaura got it to my Windowsill. It’s a hazy New England Pale Ale brewed with Mosaic, Citra and Nugget hops. At only 5.5% ABV, it’s also very sessionable. I actually drank this one in the shower, which is the Windowsill you see in the photo! Like just about everything else I’ve tried from Mikkeller, the Staff Magician was pretty solid, and I love the can art by @keithashore!
