If you’re looking to stock up on some awesome local beer for Thanksgiving, don’t worry; Hamilton’s own Grain&Grit Beer Co. has you covered with a dope double release dropping today, just in time for the long weekend festivities.
Freshly canned and ready for your sipping pleasure is a duo of beers, one meant to hold on to the fleeting summer sun and the other welcoming the crisp Fall cold with open arms.
The first release, Lemon Squeezy, sounds like pure summer in a glass; a gose (or sour wheat beer) loaded with lemon and lactose to amp up those fresh lemonade vibes. A touch of Himalayan sea salt gives this a hint of salinity amidst the puckering citrus realness.

DOUBLE RELEASE! 🎉🎉 Tomorrow is the day that we release our two newest brews — Sweater Weather Oatmeal Stout with Coconut and Lemon Squeezy Gose with Lemon and Lactose! These two beers couldn't be more different — one embraces the cool fall temps, and the other is hanging on to summatime! – SWEATER WEATHER 🦊 We’ve been missing something dark and roasty in our lineup for a while, and we’re finally going back to the dark side! Sweater Weather is an oatmeal stout that we brewed with 240lbs of toasted coconut and loads of oats in the malt bill to give it a full, creamy body. With flavours of dark chocolate, roasted nuts, coconut, cherry and burnt caramel, it’ll make you want to get cozy by the fire! – LEMON SQUEEZY 🍋 This is our first gose and holy moly are we ever excited for you to try it! It’s straight up lemonade, people! And it is freaking delicious. This beer is all about the lemon — we brewed it with lemon concentrate, lemon peel and lemon zest to give the beer multiple layers of mouth-puckering lemony goodness. We added lactose for a touch of sweetness, and Himalayan salt for some zing. It’s sweet and salty with tart, fresh lemon flavour and a hint of salinity. – Lemon Squeezy and Sweater Weather are available in cans and on draught on Friday at noon. We’ll be celebrating our new releases with the most fresh and perfectly shucked oysters from @maisyspearl! They’ll be hanging with us from 6pm until they sell out! – Which of our new ones appeals to you most? Are you embracing fall, or do you wish it could be summer all year long? – 📷 by @pureandlovelyphotography 🎨 by @triangletrees
On the complete opposite end of the spectrum is Sweater Weather, an oatmeal stout with coconut that promises to balance the creamy, full-bodied earthy roast of the stout base with toasted coconut deliciousness in every sip. A fall beer if there ever was one!
Add these two new beauts to a shop stacked with Grain&Grit faves, and you’ve got more than enough to get through dinner with your relatives! Go load up, Hamilton!
