Led by Danish microbrewery Mikkeller, the Copenhagen Beer Celebration grew U.S. roots in City Hall Plaza, where they hosts the first ever stateside festival on last Friday and Saturday. More than 57 European and American breweries brought their best batches to the makeshift biergarten for a two-night tasting hosted by Mikkeller founder Mikkel Borg Bjergso and Boston's Crash Line Productions, the group also responsible for the Boston Calling Music Festival.
