This is our take on the gruit, an ancient-style beer brewed without hops that tends to emphasize a region's local herbs and terroir. Instead of balancing and flavoring the brew with a typical hop combo, we use fresh lemon peel and dandelion greens (which you can find at your local farmer's market, natural grocer or own backyard) to create something a little spicy, a little tart and totally herbaceous. This is the beer we drink with our staff all summer long.
Remember: No hops go into this beer. Instead you'll add your own fresh lemon peel and dandelion greens. (Other bitter greens like chard work too in case you can't find dandelion)
