My brother Wayne was telling me about how they made beer from the sweet, sticky substance that comes from the pods of the Honey Locust tree. If I remember correctly, he said this was popular in the 1700's. He mentioned entire plantations of Honey Locust trees being grown for this purpose.
Is anybody familiar with this type of beer? If so, how could I go about getting more information from websites, books, etc.? It seems like something that would have a very unique flavor!
