Gruit is one of the old beer styles that use herbs instead of hops for bittering and flavour. Our latest beer to incorporate local fynbos derives its bitterness mostly from African Wormwood. The aroma is malty with a unique herbal fruitiness. The ruby red colour is mostly derived from crystal malts imparting caramel and dried fruit flavours. Ancient One is an exceptionally refreshing beer, changing what you’d expect from a dark red ale, and can be enjoyed year round.
