East Williamsburg taproom Grimm Artisinal Ales is adding a second-story rooftop pizzeria, Lala’s Brooklyn Apizza, set to open this spring. Lala’s will be a “fermentation-focused New Haven-inspired sourdough pizzeria” that focuses on the symbiotic relationship between beer and pizza: the house-milled malted wheat will be mixed in with the flour, and the sourdough will derive from the culture used in Grimm’s sour beers. In addition to pies out of a combo gas-and-wood-fired oven, expect pickled veggies, salads, and desserts, per its Instagram post. Grimm’s will serve wine at little-known sister winery, Physica. Grimm and Lala’s are located at 990 Metropolitan Avenue, near Catherine Street.
