Abu Nawas Drops: Grimm, Freethought, Public Access

Another week and another drop of tasty liquids from Abu Nawas distribution. This week, we have beers from Grimm, Freethough, and Public Access! Let’s get to it:

GRIMM

  • Grimm Depth of Field 12/500ml – FLANDERS-INSPIRED DARK SOUR ALE W/ CHERRIES. CRANBERRIES & RASPBERRIES. This Flanders inspired ale is rich and complex without tipping toward heavy. Toasty Vienna and Munich malts build a layered base that provides a sweet warmth that never feels cloying. Dark cherry leads on the nose with quieter notes of leather, tobacco, and oak. A balanced showing of the sweet & tart characteristics from each fruit is found in the flavor — a juicy burst reminiscent of real maraschino cherry, the refreshing pucker tartness, and just-picked sweetness of raspberry, and the tangy punch from the cranberry. 7% ABV.
  • Grimm Double Negative 12/500ml – IMPERIAL STOUT. Double Negative pours jet black with burnt orange highlights. A long-lasting tan head leaves abundant lacing. Aromas bursting from the glass include coffee, bitter chocolate, caramel, black currant and blueberry. Creamy and viscous on the palate, the flavor initially follows the nose. A pop of smooth bitterness comes after, and then a lingering, roasty finish. 10% ABV.
  • Grimm Heliogram 12/500ml – FOEDER-FERMENTED SOUR ALE DRY-HOPPED WITH EL DORADO & NELSON SAUVIN. Heliogram is an easy-drinking, thirst-quenching foeder-fermented dry-hopped sour ale with Nelson Sauvin and El Dorado hops. The aroma is bright but tame–notes of freshly zested grapefruit, lemon verbena, honeydew, orange marmalade, and a touch of cotton candy sweet. A punch of acidity upfront quickly ebbs into gentle flavors of underripe pineapple and mango which is complemented by a pithy bitterness. 5.5% ABV.
  • Grimm I Still Love The Old World 12/500ml – Noble-Hopped Ale w/ Raw Wheat & Brettanomyces. An ode to the brewers and beers that have long inspired the Grimm philosophy. Created in collaboration with the legendary brewer/scholar Yvan De Baets of De La Senne in Brussels, this extra-hoppy old world ale shows off our unique and evolving house ale yeast — serially repitched since Grimm’s opening for favorable genetic drift — in combination with gentle Brettanomyces and noble hops. The result is a thirst-quenching Belgian-style blonde loaded with complex brett-forward fruitiness and a noble hop-driven lingering herbal bitterness. Raw wheat in the grist and a traditional step-mash process provide an elegant malt character to this brewer’s favorite beer. 5.3% ABV.
  • Grimm Patter 12/500ml – This Saison De Coupage — 70% young Saison blended with 30% barrel-aged golden sour — with blackberries and grapefruit zest is a bright and refreshing treat. The Belgian yeast esters are a subtle through line from aroma to flavor — a supporting character to the fruit. Tart and juicy blackberry aromas tickle the nose while the grapefruit comes through more in the flavor with a burst of fresh citrus up front that fades into a zesty bittersweet finish. 6% ABV.
  • Grimm Mango Guava Pop!12/22 oz. Creamsicle-inspired Dessert Berliner with Mango, Guavas, Milk Sugar, and Vanilla. 4.8% ABV.

FREETHOUGHT

  • FREETHOUGHT Good Eye 6/4/16oz CAN – Sour Ale dry-hopped with Citra, Galaxy, and Mosaic. Notes of passionfruit, Earl Grey tea, kumquat, pine nut, and lime. 7% ABV.

Finishes clean, dry, and crisp. 5% ABV.
  • FREETHOUGHT Lucid 6/4/16oz CAN – Unfiltered IPA double dry-hopped with Amarillo flowers, pellets, and lupulin powder. Crisp and focused with aromas of sliced baguette and basil. Canary melon, sea salt and sassafras arise on the palate. Emphatic carbonation carries a finish reminiscent of Watermelon rind. 6% ABV.
  • FREETHOUGHT Madcap 24/16oz Can – Madcap is a smoky sour ale inspired by campfires, S’Mores + Hot Cocoa with the flavor profile of a mezcal sour cocktail. Brewed with raw wheat, flaked + malted oats, lapsang souchong, cocoa + tamarind. Hopped with noble hops + dry-hopped with Simcoe lupulin powder. 6% ABV.
  • FREETHOUGHT Night Vision 6/4/16oz CAN – Double Dark Sour Ale with blood orange and drinking chocolate. Brewed with chocolate malt, raw wheat, flaked and malted oats. Notes of citrus, raspberry, and cocoa. Lush mouthfeel with a bright and dynamic finish. 8% ABV.
  • FREETHOUGHT Open 6/4/16oz CAN – Unfiltered IPA brewed with flaked + malted oats, raw + malted wheat, double dry-hopped with Simcoe flower, pellets + lupulin powder. Bubblegum and subtle watermelon aromas sit on top of a soft, fluffy pour that yields delicate notes of floral honey and beeswax. 6% ABV.
  • FREETHOUGHT Shibumi 6/4/16oz CAN – Experimental Cuvée ale. Blended IPA with Golden Sour Ale, with added organic miso in the whirlpool, fermented on organic sweet cherries and finished with a cool steep of chamomile. It pours a sun-faded rose color, with a light, wispy head. Aromatics of honeyed chamomile + tropical punch. On the palate, miso adds a soft, umami texture to counter cherry popsicle, yellow chartreuse + salted plum. It finishes with layered floral tea notes. 5.5% ABV.
  • FREETHOUGHT Temporal 6/4/16oz CAN – Sour Ale with Plum, Cardamom and Rose Water. Pours an opaque, faded rose. Floral nose complemented by flavors of chai and fermented lime. Finishes tart and dry. 5% ABV.

SCHRAMMS

  • SCHRAMM BLACK AGNES 12/375ML – Our sweet black currant mead, Black Agnes, is named after one boisterous Scottish wench who successfully defended the Scottish Castle of Dunbar during a five-month siege by William Montague, the Earl of Salisbury. While relatively unknown in the United States, black currants have been grown in the British Isles for more than five hundred years, and used by herbalists since the Middle Ages. Sharply tart and acidic, the potent flavors of the fruit are perfectly balanced by the sweetness of premium honey to create a particularly unique, memorable and delicious mead. 14% ABV.
  • SCHRAMM RED AGNES 12/375ML – Schramm’s Red Agnes is finely balanced Melomel. Red currants provide deep floral aromatics, a fruitier initial impression, more focused acidity, and a stunning cardinal hue. This mead is dangerously drinkable with a delicately balanced acidity that allows the honey and fruit to sing in harmony together. 14% ABV.
  • SCHRAMM THE STATEMENT 12/375ML – The Statement is our Balaton cherry mead – made with the highest quality Traverse City Balaton cherries, carefully selected honey and twenty years of experience – having gone through more than a dozen iterations. Living up to its name, this mead truly makes a statement due to its incredible expression and depth of flavor and character rendered from honey and Michigan tart cherries. A natural complement to chocolate and sharp or blue cheeses, The Statement also pairs well with grilled pork and makes a terrific reduction sauce for desserts.
  • SCHRAMM BLACKBERRY 12/375ML – Blackberry is earthy, brightly acidic mead balances the lingering tartness of whole blackberries and carefully selected honey. Intensely fruity with balanced acidity, a complex flavor profile and an earthy aroma, this mead is reminiscent of picking fruit on a mid-summer day. A strong option for the cellar, blackberry will continue to mature and develop in the bottle for years. Blackberry pairs well with creamy cheeses, duck, and veal. 14% ABV.
  • SCHRAMM BRAMBLE 12/375ML – Bramble possesses some of the most concentrated and delicious flavors in the world of fruit. Blackberries, black raspberries, heritage red raspberries, and boysenberries create a composite of harmony, poise, and mouth-watering proportionality. Densely fruity, dark, and wonderfully balanced – an expression of quality from branch to bottle.
  • SCHRAMM GINGER 12/375ML – Schramm’s Ginger is a full-throated, unapologetic expression of pure grated ginger and honey. Honey sweetness is balanced by full ginger flavor with a touch of spiciness, making this mead a perfect choice to pair with spicy Indian, Ethiopian or Thai cuisine, grilled Korean mackerel or flavorful sushi and sashimi. It also pairs well with dark chocolate and is a great addition to a whiskey ginger cocktail or a moscow mule. 14% ABV.
  • SCHRAMM KOCHANIE 12/375ML – A play on the word honey, Kochanie is Polish for “my love” or “my sweetie” This tart mead is made with the highest quality Polish red currants and Lutowka cherries available and balances beautifully with the sweet floral aroma of orange blossom honey. Made with fruit imported entirely from Poland, the red currants contribute an extra kick of acidity to the rich dark cherries, balancing beautifully with carefully selected honey. Pair with pierogi, paczki or gotabki for an authentic treat. 14% ABV.
  • SCHRAMM MADELINE 12/375ML – Schramm’s Madeline is our boysenberry mead, made with whole boysenberries and Michigan honey. A cross between European raspberry, common blackberry and American dewberry, the boysenberry has a unique tannic flavor that combines wonderfully with carefully selected premium honey. The resulting mead is thick, jammy and extremely flavorful and pours dark purple with a very smooth, lightly tart finish. This mead is a tribute to our favorite, tiny release to date, Madeline June Schramm Naeger. Ten percent of sales of this mead is donated to the Royal Oak Beaumont NICU, where Madeline spent nearly the first three months of her life. She was beautiful when she was born, but we know she will continue to mature beautifully with age. 14% ABV.
  • SCHRAMM MADELINE 12/750ML – This is a better-suited format for on-premise use. Keep in mind that an open bottle of Shramms refrigerated will last for at least 6 months!
  • SCHRAMM MARIONBERRY 12/375ML – Marionberry is a melomel made purely from Willamette Valley Marion Blackberries. Like our ‘Blackberry’, Marionberry has a full, natural fruit acidity that is balanced by premium Orange Blossom honey sweetness to create an extremely flavorful mead. Very dark in color, the Marionberries provide a jammy, juicy fruit-forward character. This mead has great aging potential for many years, though it’s pure fresh fruit character may make it difficult to leave alone for long. 14% ABV.
  • SCHRAMM RASPBERRY 12/375ML – Schramm’s Raspberry is a mead made from whole Michigan raspberries. The flavor is unmistakably fruity raspberry, reminiscent of Michigan summers, and is balanced by honey sweetness. Due to the high level of acidity from the berries, it can age gracefully for many years. A tribute to our home state’s strong fruit growing tradition, this was the first mead made by head meadmaker Ken Schramm. It holds a special place in our history as well as our cellar. This melomel pairs well with grilled Great Lakes salmon, salads, cheesecake, and summer evening bonfires by the lake. 14% ABV.

abu.jpeg

Another big drop from Abu Nawas will be coming next week and along with this drop is the debut in Iowa of Public Access Brewing. Here’s more on this brewery:

The story behind Public Access starts with a little bar in Greenpoint Brooklyn you may have heard of called Tørst. Since the day it opened in spring of 2013, Tørst has been a haven for beer nerds all over the world. It has also managed to produce some serious brewing talent. Guys like Joey Pepper from Folksbier and Anthony Sorice from Root + Branch, got their start bartending at Tørst and have since moved on to make some of the highest rated, most sought-after beer on the East Coast. Another of those Tørst talents – specifically Ramon Manuel Manrique Hung. The story of the superb new Public Access Brewing is the story of Venezuelan native Ramón Manrique, who was living in Belgium when he became enchanted by the variety and traditions of Belgian beer. His passion for craft beer led him to positions at world-renowned beer destinations Tørst & Proletariat,  We could not be more psyched to start bringing his Public Access beers to you. Their first release is on deck for this month…
