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.
Located on the border of Brooklyn’s Williamsburg and Bushwick neighborhoods, our taproom is situated inside of our new 7,500 sq. ft. production brewery. Permeated by natural light and adorned with tropical plants, the Grimm taproom overlooks our 30bbl brewhouse, 60bbl, and 90bbl fermentors, and over 160bbl’s worth of oak barrels dedicated to aging sour beer.
With 10+ draft beer lines, bottle-conditioned oak-aged sour beers available by the glass, a selection of New York State wine and cider, locally-made sodas, and food prepared by our friends at Samesa, our Brooklyn location is the ultimate Grimm experience. We offer growlers, cans, and bottles to-go as availability permits.
