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).
