Against All HopsTechniques and Philosophy for Creating Extraordinary Botanical Beers
Are you a home brewer who’s tiring of the usual suspects, cycling through the same styles and flavors? Are you a professional brewer who’s cranking through the same catalogue of beers year after year, just adding more hops with each rotation? There might be a bit of salvation here for you.
Join brewer Butch Heilshorn and discover gruits: incredible botanical beers that were brewed throughout the world for most of human history. Butch provides techniques and approaches for the intermediate to advanced brewer to create these unique out-of-the-box brews. These increasingly popular beers use a wide array of plants, often local to the brewer, to delight palates and ignite imaginations. Butch’s philosophy espouses a practical reverence for the earth, a deep appreciation for the plants he regards as brewing partners and a decidedly anti-authoritarian streak, encouraging brewers to use his recipes as a jumping off point for their own adventures in botanical brewing—the ability to capture the essence of a particular time and place.
