KRACHT IN DE NACHT 2017
The powers of Grutte Pier had no limits. Every opponent already lost its head before he could be in shock. The battles of the Frisian folk hero took place during the night. The forces in these nights are the inspiration for this beer: 'Kracht in de Nacht' ('Force in the Night'). This beer brewed by
Grutte Pier Brewery is a force in the night for all who shall drink it. A dark beer with flavours of
roasted malts, liquorice, figs and raisins.
When you open the bottle, it's the first time the beer sees light. The bottle is light-tight because of a matt layer and has ripened 12 months on a cool location. In this period of reflection the beer undergoes a taste evolution and develops its power.
