Grady's Cold Brew is a New Orleans–Style cold brew that started as a Bottled Concentrate back in 2011, now available in Ready to Drink, and Brew-it-Yourself interpretations. Roasted, blended, and brewed in NYC. We cold brew a special blend of coffee, chicory, and spices for 20 hours, resulting in a velvety-smooth cup with every pour.
Grady’s NOLA Cold Brew has a creamy mouthfeel with tasting notes of chocolate and caramel. The use of chicory is what makes the coffee NOLA style and gives it a natural, subtle sweetness. Adding our signature blend of spices emboldens and deepens the flavor profile where many other cold brews fall flat.
The company started like any great food and beverage company - in a kitchen somewhere in Brooklyn. Working in production at GQ, Grady began to sling his signature brew in the elevator banks at Conde Nast. Word spread quickly and soon people were hounding him for their fix. It wasn’t long before Grady’s Cold Brew received the highly covetable GQ feature and Grady quit his day job. Partnering with co-founders Dave and Kyle, the three hustled to brew and distribute all week and gain exposure selling iced coffee by the cup at Smorgasburg on weekends.
Fast-forward to 2020, and we're all moved into our new 15,000 sq. ft. brewery in the Bronx. It’s a wonderland of stainless steel tanks and machinery that will allow the company to maintain premium quality, while growing in volume.
