Default Mikkeller business

Hey guys, Can anybody tell me anything about Mikkeller's business model? I know that he doesn't have his own brewery. He goes around and uses other peoples equipment.

How does this work? Does he pay for all the ingredients? Did he get his start this way or did he have a license to sell homebrew or something? I'm really interested in all the aspects of what he does.

Would love any input. Thanks!

It's all contract brewing. He owns the label and all the intellectual property but pays other breweries to brew up his recipes. Google around for the term "gypsy brewing" or "gypsy brewer" and you'll find more info out there.
