Employee Test Batch: Rosie Gruit

May 13, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Our Employee Test Batch Series is back! We invite our non-brewing employees to come up with an idea for a beer and work with our head brewer to develop a recipe and, you got it, brew the beer.

Inspired by the prominent role women have played throughout brewing history, “Rosie Gruit”, or Ms. Gruit if you’re nasty, comes from the mind of our Brand Ambassador Christine Bettinger.

Gruits (German for “herb”) are ales traditionally brewed without hops, using instead a blend of herbs and spices to add bitterness. Rosie Gruit uses a blend of English Rose tea to add a little bitterness to this smooth-drinking, malty ale.

We can gruit!
