Thirsty Thursday: Grand Teton’s Oud Bruin & Giveaway

Thirsty Thursday Grand Teton Brewering Co. Oud Bruin & Giveaway Review 0191 copy

Warmer weather is slowly creeping into our daily lives here in the States, so I thought for this edition of Thirsty Thursday I’d offer up a refreshingly complex beer from our friends at Grand Teton Brewing Co. that will be a palate pleasing cooling force on a hot summer’s day.

“Oud Bruin” or “old brown” is a Flemish style of beer known for having a thirst-quenching sweet-and-sour character and Grand Teton originally brewed their first version of this style back in 2007.  The beer was brought back to life this year, along with two other favorite styles, to celebrate the brewery’s 25th Anniversary.

Needless to say we’re extremely happy about the decision to return the Oud Bruin to service, as it’s arguably the most unique beer I’ve sampled from Grand Teton and a little of the beaten path of those typically found in their collection.  Alive with active yeasts and bacteria, the beer is constantly evolving in the bottle and when sampling you’ll discover new aspects of Oud Bruin’s subtle nuances with every sip.  It hits all the marks for being another balanced and approachable creation that entices and satisfies one’s beer soul.

Here’s my complete review:

Grand Teton Brewing Co. Oud Bruin (6% alc)
Cloudy opaque amber in color the Oud Bruin pours with a thick head that slowly dissipates into a slick.  Expresses notes of orange sour tartiness, apple cider, and hints of yeast on the nose. The refreshing complex palate offers up nuances of dehydrated cherries, malts, spice, and tartness wrapped in graciously soft hops.  Finishes with a slight toastiness with the beer’s essence pleasantly lingering.

Retails around $9 for a 750ml

Grand Teton Brewing Giveaway

GTB Giveaway

And to help keep you refreshed and looking cool this summer Grand Teton Brewing Co. has graciously provided us a few goodies to giveway: a Growler and one of the brewery’s new Trucker Hats. Sadly the growler comes libationless, but you can still be one of the cool kids on the block since Grand Teton is the brewery that invented the growler and their swag is the next big thing in fashion…at least that’s what I heard.

So here is how the Giveaway works and each of the following counts as an entry:

  1. Subscribe to by RSS Feed or email (top right of this page).
  2. Like this Post.
  3. Follow Grand Teton Brewery and on Twitter.

    Sweet. Post liked. The Gutton is delving into the sick and twisted world of sours. I like it!

  8. Hotly Spiced says:

    What a shame to be an ‘international friend’. Oh well, never mind. I’ll just head to the bottle shop and see if I can find something remotely similar xx

    Boo! We like beer in Canada too and I was hoping to sample what “Alive with active yeasts and bacteria” tastes like. Well sadly our weather is not taking the same route as your weather (been watching for about a week) and it was 4°C this morning…that’s a balmy 39°F! Yes, that in itself would make me hibernate a bit longer (damn groundhog, how could it have been sooooo wrong?!?!?!)

    I have not had this beer, but the photo of the bottle in the cold running water is just what I need on these very hot early summer Nashville days! Great photo.
