Beer pick of the week: Grimm Pina Pop Sour
Two weeks ago, our drink pick of the week was Stephanie’s special pina colada. This week’s beer pick, from Grimm Artisanal Ales in Brooklyn, is a beer made to taste like a pina colada. Pina Pop Sour is a fruited berliner weisse style beer. Grimm brewed it with beer a “half a ton of toasted coconut and an obscene amount of pineapple, milk sugar, Tahitian vanilla, and a final dose of Cashmere dry-hops.” It definitely tastes coconuty and is an easy 5% drinker. Good for these summery fall days.
