This Is The Beer: Mikkeller NYC & David Lynch Release Mulholland Drive Themed Witbier

David Lynch and Mikkeller NYC’s “This is the Girl” beer is a dry-hopped Belgian-style Wit beer brewed with coriander and orange peel.

In the beer world, David Lynch is probably best known for having psychopath Frank Booth aggressively advertise Pabst Blue Ribbon in Blue Velvet. This is changing though, as for the past 3 years, the filmmaker has been collaborating with Mikkeller NYC on limited edition beers based on his oeuvre. The collaboration began with three Twin Peaks beers in 2017, followed by a Wild at Heart tribute in 2018.

This time around, they created “This is the Girl,” a dry-hopped Belgian-style Wit beer brewed with coriander and orange peel. Its name is derived from Mulholland Drive’s famous line uttered by Justin Theroux (Adam Kesher), Monty Montgomery (The Cowboy) and Angelo Badalamenti (Luigi Castigliane) in various scenes. According to the New York City brewery, the beer’s flavor is “slightly bready with fruity esters, resulting in a uniquely balanced and refreshing beer.”
