Beer Description:
This hazy blonde gruit ale is brewed with bog myrtle and chaga mushrooms foraged from the wild, for the taste of a hike in the woods in your glass. Bog myrtle imparts herbal and peppery notes, while chaga lends earthiness and a tea-like character for intriguing complexity.

History & Style
The Gruit Series takes inspiration from centuries-old brewing tradition. In gruit ales, herbs, spices and other botanicals replace a dominant hop character, throwing open the door to experimentation. Tikkatee Gruit employs two locally available oraganic brewing ingredients, bog myrtle and chaga mushrooms. Tikkatee is is known in Finland as “woodpecker tea” and made with chaga mushrooms, inspiring the name and label for this beer.

Tasting Notes
Tikkatee Gruit pours deep hazy gold with a quickly dissipating white foam. The aroma is predominantly herbal with a hint of bubblegum and cinnamon. The flavour is sweet and slightly peppery. The use of Vermont ale yeast creates some apricot-like fruit notes. The finish is mildly tannic and drying.
