Situated in the midst of the hipster-heavy neighborhood of Williamsburg in Brooklyn, Grimm Artisanal Ales seems right at home. Each batch of ales is meant to be wiped from a mustache while discussing the subtle nuances of the latest indie rock bands to hit the local scene. Of course, it's also a good choice if you just like damn good beer and don't want to filter through any more lackluster brews.
Oddly enough, owners Joe and Lauren Grimm don't have a tattoo or other sign that they're hipsters. Instead, they've spent their time and money tinkering with fermentation techniques to perfect a Belgian-American ale. After setting up pop-up stands to sell their brew in Chicago from 2005 until 2013 for their own music and art events, the couple moved back to the East Coast. This success led to the founding of the first Grimm Artisanal Ales brick-and-mortar store in 2018.
With a die-hard work ethic and a passion for fermentation, Grimm Artisanal Ales has put together a whopping 87 different brews, turning from a minnow to a big fish in the process. With so many choices, there's no wrong way to dive into Grimm, but you may as well start with a Belgian. The BFF or From the Hip are two balanced Belgian ales that will take you to Brussels, even if it's in your own kitchen.
