Does a bear drink in the woods? He does if it’s Gritty McDuff’s Vacationland Summer Ale! Vacationland is a full-bodied Extra Special Golden Ale with a deep brassy golden color that ends on a snappy hop finish. We use generous portions of pale malt with just a touch of wheat malt to give VSA that unique flavor that’s richer than most summer brews. A surprisingly robust malt character leads off with hints of caramel, toffee and touch of toasted grain. Then a lemon citrus snap cuts through at mid-palate. Vacationland finishes with a delicate leafy hops flavor from the Cascade leaf hops we use, and all of this makes it the perfect brew for all things summer! VSA will go on tap sometime in April in all the pubs, and comes to 4.8% ABV. Until then, keep enjoying our winter seasonal beer, Scottish Ale!
Gritty’s in Freeport will have a Double Brown Ale on tap early in April. This beer is a malty dark ale brewed with Crystal and Cara Aroma malts with Willamette hops. 6.8%ABVA
The IPL, India Pale Lager, is going back on tap later in April at Gritty’s in Freeport. Greg Sansone, our head brewer in Freeport, formulated & is brewing this beer using English two-row lager malt and German lager yeast. Greg is going with generous quantities of Cascade and Willamette hops in the kettle then dry hopping the brew with Huell Melon hops. This beer will have a crisp taste upfront as a result of a six week laagering & will finish with sharp citrus notes from the American hops.
