I am absolutely in love with gruit.
It is a connection to the past, enjoyment of the present and so many possibilities for the future.
In case you don’t know, a quick search says:
Gruit (alternately grut or gruyt) is an old-fashioned herb mixture used for bittering and flavoring beer, popular before the extensive use of hops. Gruit or grut ale may also refer to the beverage produced using gruit.
Here is a great link from Beau’s. It has all sorts of beer made featuring a ton of herbs for brewers across Canada and the U.S.!
Even though International Gruit Day has passed you still have the rest of the year to try some of these and so many other great gruits!
Get out there and explore some great beer!
