New Belgium & Three Floyds Create “Gratzer”

Hitting shelves now is a new Lips of Faith release from New Belgium. For this offering, the brewery teamed up with Three Floyds to make hard to come by , smokey Polish style offering. The beer is gratzer, featured oak-smoked wheat.

It’s not dead, but Gratzer is definitely a long-buried style from Poland. And together with 3Floyds we have unearthed the best of beer zombies. Full of bold flavors from oak-smoked wheat, and along with Midnight Wheat, this beer presents a pure black pour. A subtle, spicy note from the Polish Lublin hops hides in the aroma, just below the dark and smoky surface. Despite all appearances, the Gratzer is very drinkable at 4.5% ABV, and walks itself with a nice, light body. Cheers to drinking smoky, undead beers. Prost!

Style: Gratzer
Hops: Target, Polish Lublin

  1. Prost?! it’s a Polish piwo so why use a German toast? Use “Na zdrowie” or “sto lat”.

  2. Also, if it’s a Polish beer, use the Polish name – Grodziskie – not the German one.
