COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Grätzer is another lost style, this beer originated in Poland and was a wheat and pilsner based beer that had an intense smoke aroma and flavor from smoking the malt over oak. In addition to the smoke the beer was bitter and had a pronounced hop flavor and aroma. Grimm Brothers has developed Sooty Brother in a similar fashion. Sooty Brother is composed of Wheat and Pilsner malt which has been smoked over oak and cherry wood. (Thank you Bottle Cap Bar-B-Que) Hopped with Noble German hops to give us a beer that has an intense smoke flavor accompanied by the floral bouquet of the hops. We hope you will enjoy it as much as we do.

In bottle, pours extremely hazy with an almost pink tint. Starts out like a wheat beer, and then an attack of smoke. Solid beer
