Mounting Evidence- Herbal Ale with rose geranium, Redwood, yarrow and mugwort. Such a well balanced beer with no hops. These ingredients create a refreshing pint on these pre spring days! #craftbeer#herbalale#gruits#nohops#localbeer
#tbt Circa ‘78. In honor of the NBA All-Star game in LA this weekend.
Unequivocally the worst basketball player east or west of the Mississippi. Pretty sure it was the shoes.

2 things really stand out to me. 1) That textbook, hand in the cookie jar shooting form. 2) That 3 inch vertical 😂 #nohops

If you thought I wasn't going to brew something for International Gruit Day, think again, fools! (Though who decided to put IGD in the throes of winter when there are no plants to be found?) Listen to the Flower People is an idea I've been sitting on for a while. It's 75% pils malt, with the remainder of the malt bill being made up of cooked brown rice and raw wheat flour, so it's insanely cloudy right now. Fermenting with Belle Saison yeast to get it nice and dry. More importantly, it's flavored with hibiscus, elderflower, and chamomile that I added at whirlpool (160°) and let it cool down naturally. I also added a handful (okay, it was .4 ounces) of mysterious wild hops that @jennarozelle foraged this past fall as a 15-minute addition. While most people think of gruit as simply a beer flavored with herbs besides hops, historically, wild hops almost certainly would have found their way into gruits, just not in the single-minded way we use and cultivate them for beer today.
This is the first gruit I've brewed, so I am excited to see how it turns out. I had my first taste of gruit at @eartheaglebrewings just about three years ago (White Light, Love Potion #9, and an absinthe gruit, if I remember correctly), so it's about damn time I brewed one myself!

Enjoying some Witchbinder on International Gruit Day! One of our specialities here at TBC is brewing herbal beer (aka gruit) using in-season herbs, always from local sources whenever possible. .
Brewed in the fall, this is almost the last of Witchbinder; a gruit brewed with oak-smoked sage and roasted whole pumpkin. .
There's a whole world beyond hops for those willing to step outside the ordinary.
I just don't have a single hop In the world #nohops
