Wellington Gruit Yourself
Brewed to celebrate International Gruit Day, this ancient style of beer is brewed without hops. Instead of hops this unique ale uses an herbal blend of chamomile, mugwort, lemon balm, and lemon peel to create a delicate herbal bitterness. This tasty Gru-It-Yourself beer has an enticing lemon aroma, slightly sweet malt body with notes of honey, chamomile, and a well-balanced floral bitterness which ties it all together.
A catch-all category that we use to classify all of those ancient or resurrected styles of antiquity that are appearing more and more in brewing today. From sahti to heather ale to sorghum beer to gruit, and beers like Adam and Midas Touch, these ales will vary tremendously in character from one another. Many are unhopped, strength can vary, but all are a glimpse into brewings past.
