Grimm Artisanal Ales
Notes: Seconds is a richly flavored dark mild ale conceived as a nod to historical English brewing practices. This roasty, crisp, and refreshing quencher of a session ale updates the traditional practice of partigyle brewing. In the old days, English brewers would produce different “gyles” from the same mash: first (strongest) runnings would produce a highly intoxicating brew, and then 2nd and 3rd runnings would make more sessionable ones. In this way, they could produce several different worts from a single mash. These would often be blended to make ales of varying strengths. Seconds is brewed from the second runnings of a massive imperial stout. As is conventional for milds dating from the early to mid 20th century, it also incorporates a small amount of dark sugar. At 3%, this is the ideal convivial ale for maintaining the gentlest buzz as you savor the company of friends and family for hours on end.
