Considering the bait and switch nature of rickrolling and, of course, the general awfulness of the Internet sometimes, it's easy to assume the Rick Astley beer story, which just seems way too good to be true, is a cruel joke. Fortunately, it's not. When reached via email on Wednesday, a spokesperson for Mikkeller confirmed Astley is indeed working with the brewery to develop a signature beer.
"There's not a whole lot to report other than what's already out; we did a test brew in Belgium together with Rick, and now we're planning the next steps: Dialing in the final recipe, looking at timelines for release events and so on," Mikkeller's Events & Communications Manager, Mixen Lindberg, said. "That's really all I have at the moment."
Unfortunately, that's all the brewery would say for now, but you can find some additional details right here.
