Style: Imperial Stout with Cacao and Vanilla
Bitterness: medium minus
Even an imperial dessert stout must be balanced! Smooth with rich cocoa and well-hidden alcohol. Let it gradually warm in the glass to really show off this stout’s layered complexity.
Style: Double Dry Hopped Sour
Acidity: medium minus
What would happen if we took an imperial berliner weisse base recipe and hopped it with an overwhelming dose of Citra, Simcoe lupulin powder, and Mosaic lupulin powder? We decided to find out. Packaged with plenty of hop dust in the bottle; you can choose to decant carefully for a smooth, fruit-forward drinking experience, or rouse before pouring for a rough-hewn, maximally hoppy swallow. Delicious both ways!
Style: Gose brewed with pineapple, sea salt, and oak
This is the first time we’ve experimented with pineapple, and wow what a delight this beer turned out to be. Slight coconut-like character from the oak combines with the pineapple on the finish for a distinctly pina colada-like effect. Tart, vivid, and refreshing, this is the perfect summer crusher.
Both Grimm and Barrier purchased new brewing equipment from the same highly reputable fabricator. The two breweries had made their final payments on these systems, when the fabricator suddenly went out of business! We discovered that our tanks were only partially built, and hundreds of thousands of dollars had vaporized overnight.
On July 22nd, we celebrate the friendship forged through shared trials and tribulations. The funds from this release will go to help both breweries complete their tanks.
A limited edition commemorative Teku glass shows renderings of the unfinished Barrier and Grimm brewhouses.
We are releasing two collaborative fruited DIPA’s; one brewed by Grimm with Barrier’s input, and one brewed by Barrier with Grimm’s input. Grimm’s “Power Source” is brewed with mangos, mosaic hops, and mosaic lupulin powder. Barrier’s “Groove Angle” is brewed with kiwis and amarillo hops.
Cans go on sale at 12pm Saturday, July 22nd.
Barrier will have a POS system, so cards are accepted.
Food truck (grilled cheese!) on site.
Public transportation to Barrier is easy; 45 minute trip on the LIRR (Long Beach train to the East Rockaway stop, then an 8 minute walk from the station to the brewery).
Style: Single IPA brewed with cryo hops
Our recipe for Forcefield has changed a lot from batch to batch. This year’s is similar to last year’s — a single IPA focused around Azacca and Columbus. But this time we used cryo hops, for a megadose of lupulin oils! The result is an intensely hoppy and clean beer with unique notes of fresh chlorophyll, strawberry, sherbet, and big hop resin. Very “green.” Drinkability through the roof.
STYLE: Dessert Berliner weisse brewed with blueberries, vanilla, and milk sugar and conditioned on oak
COLOR: fluffy pink
Blueberry Pop! is the newest in our series of creamsicle-inspired dessert Berliners. This time, we’ve paired the creamy sweetness of vanilla and milk sugar with blueberries. Refreshing and balanced as always.
Style: DIPA brewed with cryo hops and conventional pellet hops
Color: Hazy Gold
We punched up our favorite DIPA with an extra dose of mosaic cryo hops. More lupulin oil and less vegetative matter delivers an even fruitier and smoother hop experience.
Style: Dry-Hopped Gose Conditioned on Oak
Color: Hazy Yellow
Super Shine is summer. Mosaic and Azacca hops, subtle salinity and oak character, and refreshing lemonade tartness. This is a crusher for sure.
