Small Batch Beers

Burton on Brussels

  • Burton on Brussels Ale is a collaboration brew between Gritty McDuff’s & Allagash Brewing Co. both of Portland, Me. This beer was formulated by Ed Stebbins & Jason Perkins, Brewmaster at Allagash, who began his professional career brewing at both Gritty’s in Portland & Freeport.  The idea behind this beer was to brew a session ale that shared flavors from both breweries. With this in mind, we brewed this beer with a grain bill made up with local Blue Ox two-row malted barley, a generous amount of torrified wheat and a touch of caramalt for color. For hops we used both imported East Kent Goldings & Fuggles hops from England, and finally the beer was fermented in our open fermenters with Allagash house yeast culture. 
The result is lovely, balanced golden hued ale that finishes with a subtle hint of funk.
ABV: 5 percent, IBU’s: 30 On tap in PORTLAND.
