New Beer Friday 6/15/12
Grodziskie (or Gratzer). Is a traditional, East Prussian/Polish, oak smoked wheat ale. It has a bright straw color with white head, bitterness comes through well with a good amount of noble hop flavor over a sharp bright smoke flavor and aroma. The extremely high amounts of smoked wheat malt gives it a tart almost sour taste. For a smoke beer I'm finding it a very drinkable unique session ale.
Chocolate Kiss: A chocolate Porter dry nibbed with Ghana cacoa with some.cinnamon and a touch of vanilla. Finished with a little bit of Mexican Chocolate.
If you attended the Mountain Brewers Festival earlier this month, you may have got a sneak peak. Only at Hoppers Brewpub in Midvale.
