GRADIENT
Style: Young bruin brewed with blackberries
Strength: 6% alc/vol
Bitterness: 15 IBU’s
Color: SRM 18

We’re calling this beer a Young Bruin – a new American sour style splintering off from the Oud Bruins of East Flanders. The base beer is a supple medium-bodied brown ale showing caramel, dried fruit, and rich malt. Combining spontaneous wild microbes with a farmhouse primary yeast strain, we achieve a mouthwatering acidity and complex fermentation character. Blackberries are added directly to the fermenter for raw tart fruit flavor.

BOURBON BARREL-AGED DOUBLE NEGATIVE
Style: Bourbon barrel-aged imperial stout
Strength: 10% alc/vol
Bitterness: 70 IBU’s
Color: SRM 40

This is our award-winning imperial stout aged in Heaven Hill whiskey barrels. It’s 10% ABV and jet black. This time, the warming flavors of bourbon, vanilla, and American oak waft above notes of bitter chocolate, espresso, and black currant to create an even more irresistible experience.

Strength: 9% alc/vol
Bitterness: 75 IBU’s
Color: SRM 7

This is our second release of this beer! It’s first-wort hopped, hop bursted, and double dry hopped with centennial and falconer’s flight. We fermented it with a Belgian trappist yeast.

TESSERACT

STYLE: Double IPA
ABV: 8%
IBU’S: 80
SRM: 6

This luminous hazy-golden beauty is bursting with layers of super fresh, hoppy complexity: aromas of berry, tropical fruit, and citrus are married to undertones of resinous, dank spruce. Inspired more by Vermont IPA’s than the typical west coast style, the bitterness is firm yet soft around the edges, and the mouthfeel is creamy and luscious. Brewed with Mosaic, Falconer’s Flight, and Citra hops.

pinkbeer  chamomilejoe  kettleGrimm Ales Batch #16: COLOR FIELD

Style: AMERICAN WILD ALE BREWED WITH FLOWERS
Strength: 5.2% ABV
Bitterness: 5 IBU’s
Color: 6 SRM

Color Field is an American wild farmhouse ale brewed with hibiscus, rose hips, and chamomile. Produced with a mixed culture fermentation, it pours a hazy pink color topped with a fluffy white head. Tart aromas of lemon, black pepper, and earthy, gently perfumed botanicals mingle with classic saison funk. The soft, refreshing acidity is balanced by a hint of floral sweetness. This beer is never boiled and never filtered.
