Where can I find 13th Century Grut Bier in PA or on the internet?
So I've been searching for a few weeks to try something I bought at a fancy wine store near Towson, MD. I can't remember the place, otherwise I'd brave the 2 hour drive for the stuff. I'm looking for 13th Century Grut Bier to give as a gift to a friend and fellow beer enthusiast. If anyone knows where to buy this in PA, DE, or MD, or can find a website that'll ship it, let me know.
I know I've seen it in Connecticut. If you can't find it, you can order it here:
The website may look cheesy, but I can vouch for this place. The guy who runs it loves beer, and knows what he's doing. They may not list the Gruit on the website, but I know they stock it. I just saw it there a few days ago.
The beer is imported by B. United. http://www.bunitedint.com/portfolios/producers/historic_series/grut_bier/overview.php
They have a nice "Where to Find Our Products" section. For PA, it's http://www.bunitedint.com/services/ac... complete with a phone number of their PA. Rep, and a number of retail distributors (which includes 3 of the best known "good beer" retailers in the state). It's also commonly available at most of the :good beer" retailers in NJ, as well.
Well, considering that buying singles (and six packs) in PA means higher than average prices, and on top of that it was was from a bar, that price really isn't that steep. I think the discount liquor stores in NJ price it at $4.99 but I've seen it for up to $5-6.99, too- as well as $11served at a bar.
