Grimm Ales Batch #14: STILL LIFE

Style: TART APPLE GRISETTE
Strength: 3.8% ABV
Bitterness: 6 IBU’s
Color: 4 SRM

Grisette is a crushable, thirst-quenching historical Belgian ale originally brewed to refresh coal miners at the end of a long day. Still Life is our interpretation, brewed for the autumn season: a tart, funky farmhouse ale produced with a mixed culture fermentation. Red Jacket apple cider from the Finger Lakes region of New York lends seasonal flavor, while spelt provides a rustic grain character. This unboiled, unfiltered ale is dry hopped with German Hallertau and Czech Saaz.

Batch #13: SHAPESHIFTER

Style: Scotch ale
Strength: 8.3% ABV
Bitterness: 20 IBU’S
Color: 24 SRM

Turn-of-the-century Scottish brewers relied on caramelized brewing sugars to lend flavor to their strong ales; we brewed our Scotch ale with dark candi syrup from Belgium, where similarly flavorful brewing sugars can still be found to this day. Shapeshifter pours a deep mahogany color with ruby highlights and a luscious cream-colored head. Aromas of caramel and hazelnuts waft from the glass, to be followed by decadent flavors of dried figs and berries, pipe tobacco, and marzipan. This velvety, rich sipper is perfect for a chilly Autumn day.

Batch #12: BEES WITH A BUZZ

Style: Bière de miel aged in brandy barrels
Strength: 8% ABV
Bitterness: 18 IBU’S
Color: 7 SRM

BEES WITH A BUZZ is the brandy barrel aged version of Bees in the Trappe, our bière de miel brewed with clover honey and a trappist ale yeast. The delicate honey and yeast flavors of stone fruit and spice that characterized the original version of Bees in the Trappe are now overlaid with notes of vanilla, sherry, distilled white wine, and a distinct nuttiness. The elegant subtleties of brandy and oak create a richness that develops further with each taste. This beer is perfect for cool autumn nights, harvest moons, and falling leaves.
