Special Instructions / Notes: 

Gruit is a mixture of herbs and spices that were used in times before hops. These herb mixtures were controlled and taxed by the Catholic Church and various Royal Guilds. As hops were introduced in the late 1400's gruit began to be phased out of use. Today there is a renewed interest in gruit ales for their unique flavors and possible medicinal/narcotic effects.
