SAN DIEGO—Mikkel Borg Bjergsø is arguably the world’s most famous gypsy brewer; a gallivanting fermentation specialist exploring a myriad of styles, he’s known for pushing the envelope to the point that some of his beers challenge conventional beer guidelines.

Throughout his nine-year career, the Danish brewer used the systems of brewing comrades around the world. This will always be a part of who he is and what he does, but beginning this summer, he will have a permanent place to hang his mash paddle—the current home of San Diego’s AleSmith Brewing Co. On Tuesday, Bjergsø and AleSmith owner and brewmaster Peter Zien announced that they are finalizing an agreement for a creative partnership that will see the duo occupy AleSmith’s roughly 20,000-square-foot facility, which is separated into five suites comprising the brewery, tasting room, packaging, warehouse, barrel storage and administrative space. The deal is made possible by AleSmith’s impending move to a new, 105,500-square-foot brewery and tasting room in San Diego’s Miramar area, which is two blocks west of the current facility and expected to be completed by June 2015.
