There are not many brewers more willing to experiment with ingredients, flavors and beer-naming-conventions than Jeppe Jarnit-Bjergsø, founder of Evil Twin Brewing. The Danish-born New York City transplant has made a name for himself doing just that by brewing big pastry stouts, New England IPAs and palate-challenging sours.

He recently opened up his first taproom in Ridgewood, Queens for the Evil Twin New York City brand where he will continue to push the envelope (and make some simple pilsners, too). Jarnit-Bjergsø’s own drinking tastes are heavily-rooted in traditional Belgian styles which is the perfect foundation for American craft beer innovation. Here’s what he’s drinking nowadays.

Best Beer You Drank Recently: Burley Oak Double Carrot Cake J.R.E.A.M.

ABV: 7%
Beer Style: Fruited Sour Ale
Availability: Regional to Mid-Atlantic

“The Burley Oak Double Carrot Cake J.R.E.A.M. Burley Oak is known for making heavy fruited sours but their use of vegetables, in this case, brings a more savory flavor and is just spot on! I was honestly blown away by everything in this beer — from color to mouthfeel to flavor.”

Favorite Everyday Beer: Belgian Duvel

ABV: 8.5%
Beer Style: Belgian Strong Golden Ale
Availability: International

“That’s a very difficult question, as I tend not to drink the same beer every day. But the one I find myself drinking the most is the Belgian Duvel. Good tripels from Belgium while being very flavorful. These have a balance and complexity that make them easy to drink even with the high ABV.”

Grail Beer: Brouwerij De Dolle Stille Nacht

ABV: 12%
Beer Style: Belgian Strong Golden Ale
Availability: Limited

“I’ve had a lot, but one that really stands out to me — and has for many, many years — is the Belgian Christmas beer from De Dolle called Stille Nacht. Again, so much balance, so much complexity and at 12 percent ABV, it’s perfect for the colder months.”
