Grenadier is here

britflag

My newest brand has been decided by survey. the winner was an English Porter.

I decided to make this to be Tyrannicide’s English cousin. Where Tyrannicide uses an American Stout recipe and features an American Revolutionary War Navy vessel, Grenadier is an English recipe showcasing a brand that features the ferocious Grenadier Redcoat.

I’m hoping to brew this in late December, 2016 and enjoying it at the start of February 2017. I’ll keep a few bottles of Tyrannicide for comparison. I think these two small-batch beers will be the only ones I’ll put in 16-oz flip top bottles.
