Local Nomadic Brewery ‘Grimm’ Opens Permanent Taproom in NYC
Grimm Artisanal Ales, a “gypsy brewery,” is about to get a permanent home in Brooklyn.

The company’s founders, Lauren and Joe Grimm, have spent the last five years creating their craft beer by working out of other breweries across Staten Island, as well as in Virginia and Massachusetts. Now, they’re setting up shop at 990 Metropolitan Avenue. The 7,500-square-foot space will dedicate a quarter of its facility to creating sour beers.


Known for their experimental brews, the spirit of the “gypsy brewery” will stay alive at Grimm Artisanal Ales Brewery, where the draft line will change every Saturday. On draft for their opening week will be three sour beers, a double IPA, a saison de coupage, and an American pale ale.

The space itself is lined with large windows that allow for plenty of natural light and can sit up to 45 guests. Along with their beers, the brewery will also serve sodas made locally, wine and ciders made in New York, and food from Williamsburg’s Samesa.

The opening will take place on Saturday, June 30. Grimm Artisanal Ales Brewery’s hours will be Mondays from 5 p.m. until 10 p.m., Thursdays and Fridays from 5 p.m. until midnight, Saturdays from 10 a.m. until midnight, and Sundays from noon until 10 p.m.
