Glacial Gruit (6.3% abv, 25 IBU) is a “a coast-to-coast-to-coast celebration of Canadian history and nature” created in collaboration with the Alliance of Natural History Museums of Canada (ANHMC), with the following description:
The concept for this beer comes from the 26,000-year-old remains of a Yukon Horse that was found frozen and buried underground near Dawson City, YT in the early 1990s. The discovery was the best-preserved example of an Ice Age animal found in North America. Members of the ANHMC were able analyze the horse and identify what plants it had most recently eaten, allowing for new insights into glacial-era life and vegetation in Canada. This discovery, along with the subsequent research conducted by members of the ANHMC, inspired the selection of ingredients that went into Glacial Gruit, including yarrow, fireweed, rosehips, and buckwheat.
As with all beers in the Beau’s Ottawa 2017 series, a portion of sales will be donated to charity, with the recipient in this case also being the collaborating partner, the ANHMC.
Glacial Gruit is available now at the Beau’s taproom, retail store and delivery service.
