      You can’t put winter in a keg, but we may have come close!
      Our Abram’s Ale is a classic winter session ale. Abram’s Ale is brewed with imported English 2 Row Barley, Cara-malt, Munich, Chocolate and a touch of roasted Barley. Then we hop it with two types of Goldings hops: East Kent & Styrian along with imported Fuggles whole hops from the UK. Gritty’s Abram’s Ale has an amber color with a light, well balanced flavor. In our pubs we often use nitrogen to charge the Abram’s Ale. The result is a beer that’s richer & creamier than most winter brews.  5.5% ABV on tap in late December at Gritty’s Freeport.

      Have you had “The One?”

      Scottish Ale comes out just as winter really gets roaring
      ! Scottish Ale returns in late December to help you weather the season. Gritty’s Scottish Ale is our interpretation of the robust brews native to Scotland. Generous quantities of Pale malt along with Munich and Caramalts give this ale a deep and complex profile. A few shades darker than our Bitter, with a rich, slightly sweet first impression on the palate that rounds out to a satisfying maltiness with a medium-dry hop finish. At 6.3% ABV it’s hearty but not overwhelming.

      ‘TIS THE SEASON FOR CHRISTMAS ALE.

      Christmas Ale is a robust E.S.B. (Extra Special Bitter) full of holiday cheer.  It scored 97 by Beer Advocate. Christmas Ale has a lovely, dark red/amber color.  The ale has a chocolaty character followed by an earthy hop flavor with a fruity middle-to-end with hints of melon and pear. We brew our Christmas Ale to an original gravity of 1064 (about 6.2% ABV) which gives it a light warming feature.
