Cold Sünner Nights!

starts: Mar 01, 2017 - 9:00pm

Cold Sünner Nights!
Every Wednesday & Thursday (March - April)
Sanctuary bar only / 1st floor only
4pm-12am
21+ only

We can't 'wait for this summer, so we are bringing our famous Cologne-style kölsch service inside! (Hot Sünner Nights will make its come back in early May, outdoors in the gralegarten.)

About Cold Sünner Nights:
Treat yourself to the real taste of Cologne (Köln), Germany right here in Louisville, Kentucky! Sünner, the first brewer of “Kölsch” will be served in authentic “Kölsch Kranz” serving trays along with authentic 200ml (7oz) “Kölsch Stange”glassware to replicate the Cologne experience in the US. In Cologne, Kölsch is served in what is called “bottomless glasses”. As the customer drinks his or her beer down, servers (köbes) bring a fresh one to replace it without being asked. This continues until the happy beer drinker puts a coaster over their glass or somehow catches the servers attention to stop bringing beer. As each beer is served, a mark is made on the coaster. Each mark equals a single beer and this is what is used to calculate the beer bill. Of course, a secondary count is kept in the normal way, but this charming tradition is widely practiced in Cologne and we love it!

+ $2.50 per 7oz stange
+ $3 Underberg!

Dieu du Ciel! Péché Day 2017

starts: Mar 11, 2017 - 5:00pm

Dieu du Ciel! Péché Day
at Holy Grale
Saturday, March 11th
starts at 12pm

On Saturday, March 11th, 2017 it’s the world’s third annual Péché Day! Six varieties of Brasserie Dieu du ciel!'s coffee-infused Imperial Stout, the world-famous Péché Mortel, will be available on draft at 40 beer bars around the world and Holy Grale in Louisville, KY is lucky enough to be one of them!!!! Additional DDC! beers will be on tap in addition to Péché varietals, as well as a special Poutine pairing! We adore this this brewery and every beer they make, especially Péché. It would be a sin to miss this event :)

Dieu du Ciel! Péché Day Line-up:

Péché Mortel Classic Version
Imperial Coffee Stout
9.5% alc/vol.
A deep, dark and profound stout. Espresso coffee is infused during the brewing of Péché Mortel, resulting in an intense dark beer with roasted malt flavours enhanced by bitter coffee. The dry finish is long and persistent. Intended as a tasting experience, we invite you to enjoy this brew in moderation. This beer was first crafted at our Montreal location in October of 2001

Péché Mortel 2016 Special Edition
Stout Impérial au café
9.5% alc/vol.
The 2017 Péché Mortel Special Edition is an Imperial Coffee Stout that was brewed with a different coffee than that of the classic version of this beer. For the 2016 and 2017 editions, we chose the M’Beguka, a Kenyan coffee, in collaboration with Saint-Henri, our micro roaster. Because it is a light roast, this coffee offers blackcurrant, strawberry and rhubarb flavours. This beer was first crafted at our Montreal location in January of 2016

Péché Mortel Bourbon 2016
Imperial Coffee Stout aged in Bourbon barrels
9.5% alc/vol.
Péché Mortel is an intensely black and dense stout in which coffee is infused during the brewing process. The result is a strong beer where prominent roasted flavours coalesce with a powerful taste of coffee. Once fermentation is complete, the beer is aged several months in bourbon oak barrels, which imparts some vanilla and woody aromas as well as bourbon flavours. This beer was first crafted at our Montreal location in May of 2009.

Peach Mortel 2017
Imperial Coffee and Peach Stout
9.5% alc/vol.
For the past several years, non-francophone clients of our Montreal brewpub have frequently confused the term “Péché” with “Pêche”, and end up ordering a Peach Mortelle. This confusion gave birth to the idea of brewing a Péché Mortel with real peaches. The fruit’s acidity compliments that of the coffee, infusing the beer with fruity flavours. This beer was first crafted at our Montreal location in January of 2016

Péché Véniel 2017
Coffee Stout
6.5% alc/vol.
If the Péché Mortel had a little sister, she would be called Venial
! This version of our classic recipe is lighter in alcohol, for days when a 9.5% Péché Mortel is not part of the game plan. Brewed with a Colombian coffee cultivated by Mr. Ignacio Quintero, the Péché Véniel offers aromas of roasted malt, caramel, and hazelnuts, alongside the coffee aromas of tangerines, amaretto, and milk chocolate. This beer was first crafted at our Montreal location in January of 2016

Péché Termopilas
Imperial Coffee Stout with coffee from Las Termopilas
9.5% alc/vol.
The Termopilas Péché is an Imperial Stout brewed with the coffee of the same name! The light roast softens the roasted flavours to let the nutty flavours shine through. The beer is also slightly more acidic than the classic Péché Mortel. This beer was first crafted in our St-Jérôme brewery in December of 2016.
