New Grimm Brewery Set to Open in Brooklyn

Posted on November 1, 2016 by NYCBG

After rumors and speculation about a possible brick and mortar, it appears that Grimm Artisanal Ales has concrete plans to opena brewery and tasting room in Brooklyn.

The new Grimm brewery will be at 990 Metropolitan Ave. in East Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Architects at Kushner Studios have filed paperwork to convert the two-story brick building between Catherine Street and Morgan Avenue into Grimm HQ, complete with a brewhouse, bottling setup, tasting room on the ground floor, another tasting room on the second floor, and seating on the roof. The projected construction costs are $4.5 million. If their label art is any indication, the new Grimm brewery will be an undeniably cool and tasteful destination in the booming Brooklyn craft beer scene.

It’s worth noting that the construction plans call for a dedicated bottling area. Many breweries in NYC (and beyond, for that matter) rely on mobile canning operations. Grimm’s inclusion of a bottling system indicates their plans to make production for off-premise consumption a staple of their long-term growth plan. This will hopefully mean greater accessibility of cans and bottles, and presumably increased production capabilities with their own brewing space.

The husband and wife duo behind Grimm Artisanal Ales Joe and Lauren Grimm have been developing recipes in the kitchen of their Gowanus apartment, which are then scaled up and brewed commercially at Beltway Brewing in Sterling, Virginia. The new Grimm brewery will be just around the corner from the recently opened Interboro Spirits & Ales, and a stone’s throw away from Kings County Brewers Collective.

As no official announcement has been made by Grimm, we don’t know when to expect the new Grimm brewery to open. We’ll keep you posted with progress!
