Evil Twin’s first brick-and-mortar brewery is finally opening tonight

After a lot of false starts, Evil Twin is FINALLY opening on the Ridgewood/Bushwick border tonight. Evil Twin brewery is owned and operated by Jarnit-Bjergsø — whose estranged twin brother runs Mikkeller, another staple brew for beer nerds that has an outpost at Citi Field.

Evil Twin beers are available in 35 U.S. states and 35 countries worldwide, including in Jarnit-Bjergsø’s native Denmark, where the local press reports on his activities abroad with impressive regularity.

Jarnit-Bjergsø says he wasn’t exactly itching to open a brick-and-mortar location, but when a space in Ridgewood, owned by another Danish expat, became available, he accepted after giving the rundown building on a quiet, residential street the once over. He was particularly moved by the fact that it wasn’t in the densely populated areas of Brooklyn that he was used to. “Ridgewood is a place that isn’t totally developed and I like that,” Jarnit-Bjergsø says. “I liked that challenge.” (He also gave up ownership of the Greenpoint beer bar Tørst to focus on Evil Twin full time.)

And he lives with his wife and children in New York full-time, with no plans to return to Copenhagen any time soon. His commitment is reflected in his recent declaration that New York has become one of the world’s best cities for beers as well as the New York–centric names for the brewery’s debut cans: “Does This Subway Have Wifi?” (a pale ale), “Let’s Get Dinner In Times Square” (an imperial IPA), and “Your Apartment Is So Small. You Would Probably Find Something Larger For Less Money Outside of The City” (a New England IPA).
