International Gruit Day founder Steve Beauchesne will moderate a panel of some of the brewing world’s foremost experts on gruit—beer brewed with herbs, spices, and other botanicals in place of hops. The panelists will explain the tradition of this style, the “cool factor” of brewing beer with local terroir, foraging for ingredients and/or finding suppliers, shelf life/microbial concerns, and how to position your herbal ale in a craft market dominated by IBUs and hop-heavy hitters.
