Golden Goblet Gruit Ale

This beer recipe is featured in the May/June 2011 issue of Zymurgy magazine.

Gruit takes on many forms, but these days it often simply denotes a beer brewed with herbs. These herbs can even take place of the usual beer ingredients, like hops.

Whether you’re a homebrewer looking to experiment with flavors or a gardener wanting to bring your garden’s bounty into the homebrew kettle, this gruit recipe is a great place to start.
