The Birth of a Grand Cru
I can't think of a better way to spend a Holiday afternoon than watching football and bottling our Father & Son Grand Cru. In 4 weeks we'll be putting our Grand Cru up against some of the finest Grand Cru's in the world in a HEAD-TO-HEAD, WINNER-TAKE-ALL, NO-HOLDS-BARRED blind taste test that will decide the fate of mankind.
OK, maybe not the fate of mankind, but still it's a big deal to us. Let's meet the competition:
ALESMITH BREWING COMPANY - SAN DIEGO, CA - GRAND CRU - 10% ALCOHOL
Brewed once a year in small batches for limited vintage release.
GREEN FLASH BREWING COMPANY - SAN DIEGO, CA - GRAND CRU - 9.1% ALCOHOL
A dark ale with rich malts and fermented with Belgian & American Yeasts
RODENBACH BREWERY - ROESELARE, BELGIUM - GRAND CRU - 6% ALCOHOL
They consider this to be a Flemish Red Brown Ale
LET THE GAMES BEGIN!
