Evil Twin Brewing is a nomadic brewery originating in Denmark.[3] Founded in 2010 by Jeppe Jarnit-Bjergsø when he left his twin brother's brewery, Mikkeller.[4] Evil Twin is a gypsy brewery, in that the company does not operate an official brewery and, instead, collaborates with other brewers to produce their limited-edition and one-off beers as well as a series of seasonal and year-round beers available internationally.

Jarnit-Bjergsø, a former schoolteacher in Copenhagen, is also the proprietor of the Ølbutikken bottle shop in Copenhagen, which imports and distributes craft beer throughout Europe,[5] and a bar in Brooklyn called Tørst which serves Evil Twin and other craft beers.[6] He is also the co-author of a book titled "Food & Beer" with chef Daniel Burns, who runs a Michelin-starred restaurant called Luksus that shares space with Tørst.[7] Jarnit plans to open a brewery in Ridgewood section of Queens in 2018.[8]
