Dogfish Head Brews a New Ancient Ale

Sam has dug up another ancient recipe to bring to the modern world. Kvasir, a Scandinavian brew,was developed with the help of biomolecular archaeologist Dr. Patrick McGovern and Swedish brewer Lasse Ericsson. Using chemical, botanical, and pollen evidence found in a 3,500 year old Danish drinking vessel made of bitch bark, ingredients selected include wheat, lingonberries, cranberries, myrica gale, yarrow, meadowsweet, honey and birch syrup.

“I’m psyched about doing this Nordic grog. We’re bringing back to life an innovation of our prehistoric ancestors at the most northerly limits of the planet.” – Dr. Pat
