Andersen has an eye for everything that is overlooked. In nature for example, he praises the simple dandelion, the thistle or the mayweed. Overlooked they may be, but there is still magic and poetry in their stories if you know how to listen.

This aspect of Andersen’s universe, about finding the unusual in the usual, poetry in the every day, was something we worked with in a number of our collaborations. Together with Mikkeller, we created 3 beers based on three variants of nature: The humble, stoic beer based on dandelion flowers as ingredient, the posh and over the top beer based on roses and, finally, an exotic beer – yet to be revealed.
