Grimm Artisanal Ales is a Brooklyn-based nomadic brewery founded in 2013 by two highly pioneering brewers- Joe and Lauren Grimm- after nearly a decade of tinkering with fermentation (as they like to have it). The couple develops each recipe in the kitchen of their own Gowanus apartment and travels to other breweries near and far to craft their beers. Each of their beers is a single-batch, limited-edition release that may never come around again. But that’s what makes it special- you will always find something new here.
Dedicated to sourcing the best ingredients, the Grimm Artisanal Ales makes its beer using locally produced honey, specialty heirloom grains, and fruits as well as the best hops and grain from New York, the West Coast, and Europe. By always bringing creativity and ingenuity to the brewing process, the Grimms seek to push the boundaries of beer styles in order to create beers with the utmost depth and complexity.
Since they always experience and create something new you will find a lot of unique beers at Grimm Artisanal Ales. The Rainbow Dome, for instance, is a glowing opaque yellow pour with long lasting white foam. Tart aromas of stone fruit and fruity hops (El Dorado, Columbus, Cascade) will thrill you and will grab your attention right away. Intense apricot on the palate with soft, inviting acidity, and full, creamy mouthfeel with pleasantly spicy tannins from both fruit skins and new oak this brew will leave you wanting for more.
Another great brew that’s latest at Grimm is Psychokinesis. It is hazy golden wild farmhouse ale, dry hopped with Mosaic, El Dorado, and Jarrylo. Beautifully balanced acidity, glowing hop aromas redolent of guava, watermelon candy, pineapple, and ripe mango give it a unique taste. Conditioned on oak for light tannin structure this beer is not to be left for aging, but to be gulped down immediately.
While Grimm Artisanal Ales offers mind blowing ales, they also have a number of amazing items for you to buy. They have shirts, posters, wineglasses, and even tote bags that you can buy at cheap prices. You can get these both for souvenirs and for personal use.
