For those that don’t know about Granite City, they are a mid-western chain brewpub organization. They currently have 27 locations in 11 states. We sat at the bar and tried the 6-beer sampler of lager, bock, IPA, stout, wheat, and a half-and-half. The beers all taste consistent across the locations; I’ve been to five. They are good beers but not great, and none stood out to me. At Granite City they create their wort at one central location then ship it to their brewpubs for fermentation. We jokingly refer to this process as fermentus interruptus. In my opinion this process leaves the beer with a metallic aftertaste. The service was good. Parking isn’t a problem.
