Co-op Gruit

Drowned ChipmunkBoise Brew Minute (episode 66) – “Beer Matt” at the Co-op talks about a collaboration brew between them and Woodland Empire. They’re making a gruit or hop-free beer based off an 800 year old recipe. This gruit uses mint, celery seeds and rye to balance the sweet malt flavors. It also has souring agents which are becoming more popular now but almost certainly would have been in beer 800 years ago due to less sterile brewing environments. The beer will be released at both locations for International Gruit Day on Feb 1.
