Molasses and Corn Grits Strong Ale
That’s right… a molasses and corn grits strong ale and wow does this beer deliver. RTJ threw down with two of the best, Briana Brake of Spaceway Brewing and Mike Potter of Proximity Brewing to brew this tasty seasonal beer for Blacktoberfest an incredible festival put on by Black Brew Culture.
All due respect to traditional strong ales, but this version is about to blow your mind. So many subtle notes of caramelized malt, deep nutty notes of molasses, and the gentle earthiness of the corn grits are woven together to create one amazing beverage.
Available at Spaceway Brewing in North Carolina & at Blacktoberfest on October 8th.
