SOS will be on tap for St. Patrick’s Day in all Gritty’s brew pubs. The Special Oatmeal Stout, better known as SOS contains 7 barley malts, torrified and malted wheat, 10% flake oats and is hopped with 3 different varieties of Goldings Hops. S.O.S. has a smooth, chocolaty flavor with a full body. The ABV is around 6.8%. SOS is the perfect beer for St. Patrick’s Day and the rest of March. On tap at all pubs.
Be sure to try the Pilsner from Gritty’s in Freeport this month. The Freeport brewers have been busy brewing a Pilsner style beer that is going on tap in March. This Pils is a little more amber in color than a typical Pilsner, but still has that citrus flash and zing. The guys used Continental lager yeast from Germany & Saaz hops. This beer has a dense rich head, slight amber color and citrus notes. About 5.5% ABV.
Because winter still hasn’t lost its grip, Scottish Ale is still pouring in the pubs! 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. On tap at all locations.
