Notes / Commercial Description:
Our Grunion Pale Ale wasn’t born on a beach, but in a backyard. Originating from an employee-only home brew contest, this award-winning hoppy pale ale is named after the tiny local fish known for late night frolics on shore. A pair of new hop varieties lend strong yet balanced summer melon aromas and herbal flavors, while a soft caramel malt sweetness holds it all together.

Had on tap at the new BP brewery in Little Italy. Massive improvement over their original Pale Ale (Yellowtail). Very tasty and highly recommend. Crisp and clean with just the right hoppy bite and citrus undertones. Cheers.

Side rant: The prices at this location are MORE than at other locations. They wanted 7.5 for a Sculpin. WTF. Guess I'll keep drinking at Bottlecraft.
