Grand Cru

Grand Cru was 1st brewed in 2009 as a celebratory beer for the blue moon that just happened to fall on New Year’s Eve. For that rare event, Grand Cru was created as a bolder expression of the classic Belgian White. It blended the familiar flavors of orange peel & coriander with generous amounts of wheat, oats, & barley malts to create a richer, more robust ale.
