Beer Video: Joe and Lauren Grimm on Pilot Batches, Art and Finding Space to Brew

In honor of Grimm Artisanal Ales‘ release of the Tesseract double IPA in cans and Barrel Aged Double Negative imperial stout in bottles this week, BeerAffair would like to highlight a video produced by BRIC TV earlier this year for  Brooklyn Independent Media, Grimm Artisanal Ales: BK Stories.

Filmed in the Brooklyn apartment of the husband-and-wife gypsy brewing team, Joe and Lauren Grimm, the video takes a peek into the process of brewing pilot batches at home, and the parallels (and divergences) between brewing beer and creating art.


“There’s such thing as a great painting that’s ugly, but there’s no such thing as a great beer that tastes terrible.” —Joel Grimm
