Since February 1, 2013, craft brewers who love making gruit ales have united and celebrated International #GruitDay. The day is intended to raise awareness of, and pay homage to, the historical traditions of brewing with botanicals such as bog myrtle, yarrow, mugwort, heather, and juniper. These herbs were used instead of hops in ancient brewing to provide beer makers with a wide array of aromatic and flavourful options.
Check out the complete list of participating breweries, learn more about the day or participate in an event. If you want to learn more about Gruits check out our Just Beer University article Beer Styles 201: Gruit Beer (Ancient Herbed/Spiced Ales).
