It wasn’t planned, but our first day on the market was Canada Day. This is actually a fitting coincidence since Grimross Brewing seeks to become a Canadian beer even though it may have a Belgian lineage. By that I mean, there is a great deal I like about Belgian beer, but I am very much a Canadian and my recipes are very much influenced and inspired by many things Canadian.
The house yeast used at Grimross has origins in Belgium, but ingredients include local honey, local fruit, Maritime malt and we will continue to use local ingredients whenever possible. Most important, Grimross is conceived and brewed and cared for in the Maritimes by Maritimers.
So far our reception has been very positive – thank you for that – and we are excited to design new beers everyone to enjoy.
