Have your tried our Baere Monk Grisette? •
#Didyouknow “gris” means gray in French? This cousin of the saison holds its history only in bits and pieces of literature. Folks banter back and forth about it being named so due to the gray color of the ladies’ dresses who served the coal miners this beer...or the gray layer of dust those miners wore when returning from a long day to drink it. Some even say it is because the Chit malt used gave the beer a gray hue.
No matter it’s origins, this historical style is enjoying a renaissance in modern brewing, as brewers explore historical grains, and incorporate more modern dry hopping combinations. •
Try our nod to this delicious style, made in collaboration with @baerebrewing! •
