A Team of Brewers Collaborate on a Unique Beer in Scotland
The beer style itself is called a gruit, it’s a historic European style that doesn't use hops but instead uses botanicals and herbs to provide the bitterness and flavor that hops normally do.
Six foraged ingredients - scurvy grass, laver, crab apples, black loveage, juniper branches and sea buckthorn - will be included in the beer.
Interesting stuff. I have never heard of gruit style beer which uses alternates to hops as ingredients. There is no review of the beer itself here since it hasn't been made yet. Good luck to them! Other beer reviews using sea buckthorn can be seen here -
