Grain & Grit Beer Co. Brings Back Sun Down Stout

HAMILTON, ON – Grain & Grit Beer Co. has announced the return of a popular seasonal stout.

Sun Down Stout (5% abv):

We’ve brought back a favourite to wrap up stout season! Aromas of dark chocolate, coffee and toasted hazelnuts make way for rich notes of freshly brewed coffee, nuts and cacao. Dry finish with heaps of dark chocolate lingering as you delve into another sip.

We’re always striving to make our beers better with each batch, and for this version of Sundown we adjusted the hop schedule, meaning when we added our bittering and aroma hops. We moved most of the additions to later in the boil to help preserve more of the floral and herbal aroma and flavours from the Willamette and Fuggles hops. For those familiar with Sun Down, you’ll still taste the smooth and tasty balance between the dark chocolate, and the nutty roasted coffee from the darker malts, but you’ll get a touch more earthy and herbal notes from the late addition hopping.

Sun Down is available now at the Grain & Grit taproom and online shop.
