Inspired by a Medieval Dutch beer, but with a new-age hoppy twist!
citrus - grapefruit - orange
Our friends at Beer52 in the UK asked us to try our hand at reviving a historical beer style. So, we did just that, drawing inspiration from Gruit and Kuit beers that were popular in Holland in the late-Middle Ages. In classic Two Chefs style, we went for a complete modern-day IPA makeover using a contemporary yeast strain and potent new world hops in addition to a malt bill consisting of 6 different types of grain! Wheat, oats, and spelt make for a rounded and smooth body, while maize and rye add a spicy, dry, and crisp touch. Two types of hops infuse the beer with vivid flavors and intense aromas of citrus, grapefruit, and orange, leading to a balanced and clean bitter finish.
Brewed with barley, spelt, wheat, oats, rye and maize.
Topped off with a generous serving of Simcoe and Nelson Sauvin hops.
