Flying Buffalo Coffee by Griffin Claw and Great Lakes Coffee : a barrel aged imperial stout brewed with coffee coming in at 14%, and a 1/100 Barbatos Lupus Rex. . Okay. If you've ever had BBA beer, or an imperial stout, or any beer that's 14% alcohol, you can probably imagine how this tastes. I get a lot of booziness, sweetness, and bourbon, but not actually a ton of coffee, which is disappointing (coffee is mentioned nine times in the description on the damn bottle). It's a little thinner than I'd like, and not to sound like a craft beer cliché, but the 2016 was better. It's not bad by any stretch of the imagination, but there are far better examples of the style, including the last two years of this exact beer. Cheers 🍻🍻 . . . . . . . . #griffinclaw #greatlakescoffee #flyingbuffalo #barbatoslupusrex #ironbloodedorphans #beerstagram#gunplabuilder#gundamstagram#beersnob#craftbeerporn#brothasandbeer#beertography#craftnotcrap#craftbeersnob#instabeer

Planning for Future After Rapid Growth By Jon Sicotte, Brewer Magazine After rapid growth early in their development, @griffinclaw Brewing had to quickly look to its future. That meant a shift in packaging, opening a new facility, increasing the size of the brewhouse and tripling capacity, all in a short amount of time for the metro-Detroit brewery. “We planned this expansion two years ago because we could see some of the writing on the wall,” said Kyle VanDeventer, the brewery’s Sales Director. “We’re still only in the state of Michigan and a majority of our sales are in the Metro Detroit area. We have big plans on expanding that halo this year and with big sales plans come big production plans as well. Thus the need for expansion.” That means a new 33,000 square foot production facility, moving from a 17-barrel to a 50-barrel brewhouse, switching to mostly 16-ounce cans. This after what had been planned for a 3-4,000 barrels to start in the first year ended at 9,00 and grew to 18,000 in less than three years.

🔥🔥🎊Happy New Year🎊🔥🔥 . Griffin Claw Ob.Liv.I.Ous: wheat wine aged in Bourbon barrels (10%) and the 1/100 Barbatos Lupus Rex on deck. . I've had this one aging for about two years (it's a 2015). Smell is straight alcohol sweetness, a toffee, caramel, and molasses scent that carries into the flavor. Smooth as hell. Light carbonation and a thin head that dissipates. Fire🔥. Cheers, builders 🍻 . . . . . . . . . #griffinclaw #oblivious#griffinclawoblivious #gundam#gunpla

A pearl sugar waffle dipped in chocolate, topped with vanilla ice cream and a salted caramel glaze. Sounds like perfect way to indulge before your New Years diet. 😉 #griffinclaw #gcbc #taproom #drinklocal #treatyourself #newyearnewme

Day 24: Christmas eve calls for a family "cousins" review w/@griffinclaw "El Rojo." @kolb1kr keeps it real, but @kkolb6 was turnt on that egg nog, and is probably set for an SNL skit in the coming years. Overall, not this company's best brew. Too watery, tart and not what we expected. 😒 Swipe for more. #MugMen #OneMoreDay #SundayFunday #ChristmasEve
