This Guy Is Brewing ‘Ancient Beer’ Using The Oldest Recipes Possible, And It Seems Awesome
We’re t-minus 60 minutes away from me cracking the first of many Halloween brewskis. I wasn’t planning on writing up many more articles this afternoon. I’m already 10-deep on the day and after 8 or so my mind begins to turn into mashed potatoes. But I came across this video from Great Big Story about beer brewing..
This dude got into beer the same way a lot of people find themselves getting deep into hobbies: a strong curiosity. He was wondering what that beer would be like if he walked into a pub 1,000+ years ago. So he set about recreating ancient beers and from the looks of it these are very unique beers, and the people seem to enjoy them…That’s just the first story here in a collection of the most bizarre beers in the world. I don’t want to spoil the rest:
The ‘oldest’ beer I’ve drunk myself was a recipe from Blue Point Brewery, the Colonial Ale. They found a copy of George Washington’s favorite beer from all the way back in 1757 and went about brewing a recreation. I was able to crack a few bottles late last Summer and I was shocked by how much I enjoyed it, so these days I’m very open to the idea of ancient beer recipes. Now, if you’ll excuse me, it’s time to go crack a beer.
