Beer Description:
Part of #febrewary 2016!

Tyrannosaurus Gruit is a red gruit ale made with beets and hibiscus flowers. Organic juniper berries and spruce tips and add in an enjoyable element of woodsiness and conifer resins.

History & Style
Gruits take inspiration from centuries-old brewing tradition; a time before the Bavarian Purity Act of 1516 that declared that all beer be made solely with barley, hops, and water. In gruit ale, herbs, spices and other botanicals replace a dominant hop character, throwing open the door to experimentation with flavour and beer terroir.

Tasting Notes
Tyrannosaurus Gruit pours brilliantly clear with a red cranberry colour. Aromas of beets and berries give way to subtle spruce. The flavour reflects beet flavour with resinous, peppery spruce notes. A hint of juniper follows. The finish is bright and crisp.

Food Pairings
Beet salad with lentils; beet-leaf-wrapped chèvre; oatmeal crepes with vanilla & wildflower-honey-scented ricotta & rosehip syrup; beet-cured wild salmon gravlax; old clothbound cheddar.
