Ancient One – Fynbos Gruit

Gruit is one of the old beer styles that uses herbs instead of hops for bittering and flavour. Our latest beer to incorporate local fynbos derives its bitterness mostly from African Wormwood. The ruby red colour is mostly derived from crystal malts imparting caramel and dried fruit flavours. Ancient One is a refreshing beer that can be enjoyed year round.
