Grimm's Griffin debuts at the Backbone

Grimm Brothers BrewhouseHere's a nice way to spend your Thursday evening this week. Grimm Brothers has produced a unique brew that will be available only at one restaurant - Loveland's own - Backbone Gourmet Grub & Brewhouse. It's an event designed to get people out to the Backbone, discover some new taste treats and sample one of Grimm Brothers latest brews. It sounds like a win / win event.

Grimm Brothers Tapping Party / Food Pairing

Backbone Gourmet Grub & Brewhouse and Grimm Brothers Brewhouse are offering a local beer tapping party/food pairing event to unveil Grimm Brothers newest brew – The Griffin – on Thurs. Dec. 15 at 6:00 p.m. The Backbone is the only restaurant that will be serving The Griffin AND is the only location to pair delicious food with the brew.

Grimm’s Griffin is a hefeweizen, a wheat beer brewed with special yeast to add herbal and tangerine notes. The beer is recommended to accompany Backbone’s Chicken Fresco Burger, freshly ground chicken stuffed with lemon and herb butter and topped with Swiss cheese, grilled sliced mushrooms and garlic aioli; as well as its Fish Tacos, tender flaky fish seasoned & grilled (or fried) topped with crunchy apple slaw and served in a warm corn tortilla with chipotle aioli sauce.

Russell Fruits, Grimm Brother’s beer evangelist will kick off the tapping party at 6:00 p.m. with some details about the new brew as well as complimentary beer samples. Attendees are welcome to stay after the tapping to enjoy more beer or pair the beer with a recommended dish item from the Backbone menu (available for the standard prices.) Following the tapping, Grimm’s hefeweizen will become a new specialty beer on tap at the Backbone for a limited time.

Backbone Gourmet Grub & Brewhouse“The best beer can be enjoyed on its own or accompanied with a delicious dish, something that we are very excited about through our partnership with Grimm Brothers Brewhouse,” said Gary White, general manager of the Backbone. “Backbone/Grimm Brothers tapping parties will become a staple for Loveland, allowing foodies in the area to enjoy delicious local food with some of the best local beer.”

No reservations are required. The Backbone is located at 1480 Cascade Ave. beside the Fountains of Loveland event center. For more information or reservations, please call (970) 622-8008.
