*** Groovy 1.8.6

# cd to your homebrew dir. Usually /usr/local/
cd /usr/local/ 

# list older versions
brew versions groovy

# copy/paste the gt command in front of v1.8.6
git checkout b688a91 Library/Formula/groovy.rb

# proceed install
brew install groovy

Add GROOVY_HOME to your environement (edit your ~/.bash_profile)

export GROOVY_HOME=/usr/local/Cellar/groovy/1.8.6/libexec

*** Grails 2.1.0

Install latest grails:

brew install grails

Add GRAILS_HOME to your environement (edit your ~/.bash_profile)

export GRAILS_HOME=/usr/local/Cellar/grails/2.1.0/libexec
