For nearly 25 years the Greffs produced craft beer in Ann Arbor, utilizing cultivated materials and techniques that have stayed the same over those decades. Now handed over to Farm + Ferment, Arbor Brewing continues an award winning tradition of bedrock brews and tasty experimentation. New ownership allows Arbor Brewing to grow its own hops and a companion vineyard means available wine barrels for the best aged beers. Their brewpub and eatery is an institution in central Ann Arbor.
Irish Dry Stout is black beer noted for a dry finish resulting from roasted barley. This style tends toward a medium level of bitterness, more so than most stouts, and a creamy body which leavens the roasted flavour, making the taste cut off quicker than more traditional versions. With a low alcohol volume and rich taste, this is an excellent stout to enjoy a few pints worth. Serves well at 10°C and can stand nearly a full calendar in the cellar.
