SHAOLIN GRIMM ONCE AGAIN!
We’re thrilled to announce that we’ve made an arrangement with our friends at Flagship to brew more beers on Staten Island. We’ll be brewing into a special Grimm fermenter at Flagship throughout the coming year. We love working with these guys and we’re very excited to return to the birthplace of Lambo Door and other faves. We’re thinking of initiating a series of hoppy, free-rise saisons… Stay tuned.
Style: Dry Hopped Spruce Tip Gose
Super Spruce owes its immense pine aromatics to a double dose of resin. The new growth of spruce trees layered with Chinook hops create a complex profile of fresh pine that includes floral, citrus, cola, and bubble gum undertones. This unboiled beer is luminous and hazy with a grapefruit-like acidity that perfectly showcases the bright coniferous flavors. Sea salt rounds the mouthfeel, while white oak provides tannic structure.
We foraged for Adirondack conifer tips all day but still didn’t harvest nearly enough. The bulk of the spruce came from Colorado.
Beautifully hazed-up new school IPA. Juicy and soft with an aroma that catches your attention from across the room. Velvety mouthfeel, soft bitterness. Citra, Mosaic, Equinox, and El Dorado varietals kicking out a range of tropical flavors. Perfectly balanced and dialed in. Draft only. Born on 1/11/16.
Another one: 8 Best Breweries of 2015. “And if you think it was a fluke that such a small shop toppled craft beer giants in the blind tasting [with Lambo Door], consider this: Grimm had another beer, Tesseract, that landed in the top five of that same blind tasting. That’s no fluke. That’s just awesome.”
Proletariat maestro Cory Bonfiglio’s Best Beers of 2015. “A lush, overripe citrusy masterpiece that ushered in this new wave of soft, hop-saturated sour ales, Telekinesis helped rewrite the definition of both “hoppy” and “sour” for many and Grimm have continued to expand upon that premise since.”
Serious Eats: Best New Beers of 2015: “Lauren and Joe Grimm, the Brooklyn-based husband-and-wife duo behind Grimm Artisanal Ales, crafted some of 2015’s most exciting and exquisite new beers—assertive, fun, and always packed with flavor.”
Style: Double Dry-Hopped American Wild Ale
A tart wild ale with a big tropical nose of El Dorado, Columbus, and Falconer’s Flight hops. Several strains of lacto, wild yeasts, and The Yeast Formerly Known As Brett Trois. Grapefruit pith and mango notes, backed by a balanced earthy funk. Hazy crusher. Draft only.
