Medieval Recreation Brew
Oats, Wheat, 2-Row
Yarrow, Mugwort, Lavender, Marshmallow Leaf
Botanically infused golden ale. A creamy body supports a fascinating cast of non-hop aromas: Yarrow, Mugwort, Lavender & Marshmallow leaf. This floral beer maintains a balanced & deft hand with herbal additions. This collaboration beer was brewed with the South Eastern Medieval Association & the College of Charleston.
At one time hops were only a supporting player in the grand selection of flavorings added to beer for bitterness & character. You might see these named, Gruit. Eventually the blend of herbs & botanicals would be regulated by some governing body that controlled sales. This was the first form of beer taxation. Gruit regulation also helped to keep out toxic ingredients that were often added to beer to deliver an unwholesome kick.
