Grau Dunkel is a traditional German-style wheat beer brewed using traditional German malts like vienna and munich. The wheat malt for this brew was smoked over the oak chips we used to age our Brown Honey Rum. The smooth flavor and aroma of oak, honey and molasses add a complex backbone to the brew. The weizen yeast strain used for fermentation provide dry, spicy clove and banana notes.
This beer was brewed by Jason Weissberg (our brewpub GM) in honor of his new born son Grayson. The beer supposed to be brewed prior to Baby W's arrival but wife Kathleen went into labor 2 weeks early while in the pub enjoying the Big Fat Slim/Fleshtones concert on March 13! A contest to name the beer was held among pub employees and the winner is:Alison Schraeder who came up with Grau Dunkelweissenberg or Grau Dunkel for short.
ABV Approximately 5.21%
