Grind City Brewing Revamps and Rebrands

Grind City opened in the doom and gloom that was known as 2020 giving us all a beautiful spacious brewery to safely socially distance and enjoy some beer. But it curtailed some of their launch plans.

Fast forward to today and Grind City is now launching a rebranded look for their flagship beers in a way that better represents the brewery and the historic space it sits in.

The location of the brewery is what used to be the Tri-State Veneer & Plywood factory where so many wooden chairs were produced. On the new cans, you’ll see a light blueprint design. That’s from the same blueprints used for those chairs that Grind City found on the property while remodeling. 

The beers that will be canned as part of their freshly branded flagships includes: The Godhopper (hazy ipa), Thaddeus (amber lager), Poppy’s Pils (premium American pilsner), Belga (Belgian-style wheat ale), and Tiger Tail (craft malt liquor).

You can find the beers at our local Kroger locations plus local liquor and beer stores.
