GRIMM

  • Grimm Gamelan Pop! 16oz CAN – Sour ale – Gamelan Pop! sour is a powerful tropical burst— Guava, Mango, and Kaffir Lime Leaves combine with Tahitian vanilla beans, milk sugar, Azacca dry hops, and our Pop! sour candy juice base. 6% ABV. 🍈🍈🍈🍈🥭🥭🥭🍃🍃🍃
  • Grimm Castling 500ml – Farmhouse Pale Ale. This beer is BELOVED in the Grimm household. It is our most traditional, simple, and perfect beer. Brewed with complexly step mashed Pilsner malt and a generous whirlpool addition of noble hops, this is pure old world elegance. We think it’s best enjoyed with a slow pour into the center of a tall glass, to raise that gorgeous rocky white head that lasts right down to the last sip. Quenching with notes of hay, pepper, candied citrus. Noble hops age very differently than new world hops; we like to savor the flavor transitions over months in the bottle. Recommended if you like De Ranke, De la Senne, Dupont, Thiriez and Blaugies. 5.5% ABV. Joe Grimm’s favorite Grimm beer! 💗💗💗
  • Grimm Full Frequency500ml – Mixed-culture berliner weisse. Laced with rhubarb and apricot, Full Frequency is the second in our new series of traditional-method raw berliner weisse! We are one of a tiny handful of breweries on the globe making berliner in the old way — brewed from step-mashed wheat-based wort that is fermented with a long, mixed culture fermentation, instead of a kettle sour. This never-boiled crusher is crisp and thirst-slaking, presenting balanced flavors of fuzzy apricot, tart rhubarb, and citrus-herbal notes from dry hopping with Mandarina Bavaria. 3% ABV.
    Grimm Draft:
    • Grimm First Anniversary 1/6 bbl Keg – Triple IPA with Cashmere, Mosaic, and Nelson Sauvin. Don’t have a description yet…will be posted on Grimm Instagram later this week. 11% ABV. ***Draft Only***
    • Grimm Afterimage 1/6 bbl Keg – Bringing back an OG. Grimm’s Flagship DIPA with El Dorado, Mosaic, and Simcoe. Juicy, juicy, juicy. Hazy orange, soft carbonation, plush fruity aromas. Immense mango, marmalade, pine, honeysuckle, and lemon flavors. Smack dab in between Lambo and Tesseract on the sweet-to-dry spectrum. Just a hint of bitterness. 8% ABV 🍊🍊🥭
