What is your parking availability?

Do you offer tours?
We do not offer official tours. However, visitors will quickly notice that our taproom looks onto our production area. The brew house, fermentors, and barrel library are clearly visible from our taproom. Visitors will certainly have no problem seeing from where the beer originates! During our normal business hours, we are happy to answer any of your questions, of course.
Do you take reservations for large parties?
Reservations are not necessary for normal business hours, but if you are coming with a large party (eight or more people), certainly a head’s up is appreciated. Please email us at [email protected].

For legal reasons, we cannot ship beer through the mail.

Not at this time, although we are working on a solution to make this possible.
Do you allow bus or brewery tour groups to visit?
Please email [email protected] with any inquiries regarding tours or large group visits.
Do you allow bottle shares at your brewery?
If you have a special bottle of non-Grimm beer that you’d like to open and share with a friend, please ask an on-duty bartender for permission. If they give the thumbs-up, please don’t abuse the privilege! Offering a taste of beer to the bartender can be a nice way to say thanks. Remember that bartenders make a living from the tips on the beer they sell you, so take care of your bartender.
I’m a retailer, how do I get a tap handle?
Please contact your your distributor. Tap handles may not always be available, but they will do their best.
I’m a label collector. Can you send me your labels, bottle caps, etc?
Unfortunately we don’t have the bandwidth to fulfill these requests at this time.
Do you allow dogs?
Yes! We allow well-behaved dogs on leashes or in bags in our taproom.
Can I bring my own growler to fill?
- It must be CLEAN.
- Dark glass growlers only.
- If you are bringing screw-top style growlers, bring your own cap.
What’s the shelf-life of a growler?
Each beer style varies, but we recommend that unopened and refrigerated, you drink it within a week or two.
Once opened, the beer will last about 2 to 3 days at most. When a growler is opened and beer is poured, air replaces the beer inside the growler and the remaining beer in the growler oxidizes quickly. Our draft beers are best served fresh, so enjoying them as soon as possible is always your best bet.
Your growler should always be kept cold to ensure highest quality, and if you are traveling, bring a cooler and some ice for best results.
What does “bottle conditioned” mean?
The beer has been carbonated naturally by a secondary fermentation in the bottle. Expect some yeast sediment in the bottom of the bottle; for best results, refrigerate for 24 hours minimum and pour gently, leaving the sediment behind in the bottle.
Who distributes your beer?
We are available in other states from time to time via Shelton Brothers and their network of small local distributors.
When are you open?
View our normal business hours.
Which credit cards do you accept in your taproom?
We accept all major credit cards.
After purchasing a growler, can, or bottle, can I drink it at the brewery?
Any to-go beers are also available by the glass in the brewery. If you’d like to enjoy a beer on-site, please order by the glass because to-go prices and on-premises prices are different.
Can I bring my child to your taproom?
Children are welcome provided that they are supervised by a responsible adult and are well behaved.

Why is your brewery named Grimm?
Grimm is our last name! Joe and Lauren Grimm founded Grimm Artisanal Ales in 2013. Simply put, Grimm is a rad name. That being said, we think that by making our last name into our brewery name, we have to stand behind everything that we put into the world. All of our beers must be up to our standards of quality.
Is your brewery wheelchair accessible?
Is your beer kosher?
Beer is considered “kosher by default” unless there are unusual flavorings added. Any unusual flavorings in our beer will always be clearly labeled, so if there is something that is a cause for concern, you’ll know.
Is your beer gluten-free?
No. However, we offer natural wine and cider in our taproom, so your gluten-free friend has something to enjoy!
Is your beer vegan?
If our beer includes ingredients that aren’t considered to be vegan, your will see the ingredients listed on the can or bottle. Non-vegan ingredients include: honey, milk sugar.
Do you offer non-alcoholic beverages in your taproom?
Rest assured, you can always find water and soda in our taproom.
