Going to Grandma’s House is kind of like stepping onto the set for an over-the-top old lady place in a tv sitcom. There are an awful lot of (tacky) knicknaks to look at and some serious throwback furniture. But of course we didn’t come for the decor – there’s already plenty of tacky  at “antique” stores on that stretch of Broadway. We came for the beer. The first one I tried was the Gringanzo Vienna-Style Lager. It was a fair, if not excellent, version of a Vienna lager with a good copper color, some malty flavor, and a touch of hop bitterness. In my opinion it could have used a bit more malt to give it a stronger and more distinct flavor profile but in general it’s a pleasant and sessionable beer.
