Grimm Artisanal Ales

Grimm Artisanal Ales is a Brooklyn-based brewery founded in 2013 by Joe and Lauren Grimm after nearly a decade of tinkering with fermentation. Grimm specializes in concise, elegant ales epitomizing the creative, experimental spirit of the American artisanal beer revolution. With each limited edition release, we seek to push the boundaries of style and flavor in order to create beers with the utmost depth and complexity. For five years, Grimm operated as a nomadic brewery. Joe and Lauren would develop each recipe in the kitchen of their Gowanus apartment and travel to existing breweries near and far to craft their commercial beers. In June 2018, they opened their permanent location in the East Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn, NY.

This brewery is not open for visiting.

Double Negative

Stout - American Imperial / Double

2015 GABF gold medal and 2014 GABF silver medal in the imperial stout category. Double Negative pours jet black with burnt orange highlights. A long lasting tan head leaves abundant lacing.

Super Spruce

Sour - 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.

Subliminal Message

Style: American sour red ale brewed with tart cherries Color: SRM 14 Acidity: medium This American red sour ale balances a juicy acidity against a backdrop of malty sweetness. Conditioned in stainless tanks with oak spirals and tart Montmorency cherries, this is a shamelessly unfaithful tribute to the red-brown beers of Flanders we love so much. Lightly toasted bread on the nose, sweet and tart on the palate, with a touch of cherry on the long, complex finish.
