Cool, thanks for sharing. I didn't know about that one. If you're into that stuff you should also check out their Midas Touch (if you haven't already). It's not my cup of tea, but it's cool to say you drank an ancient recipe

I really enjoyed Midas Touch before even realizing it was an ancient recipe. I'm sure I'll pick up a bottle of this just to say I've tried it. It's too expensive for me to do regularly though.

What is it made of? I looked on their website and basically found the NPR article, but not a list of ingredients contained in the recipe.

From BeerAdvocate...

Quote:
Inspired by a beverage found in clay posts in China around 9000 years ago. In keeping with historic evidence, Dogfish brewers used pre-gelatinized rice flakes, Wildflower honey, Muscat grapes, barley malt, hawthorn fruit, and Chrysanthemum flowers. The rice and barley malt were added together to make the mash for starch conversion and degradation. The resulting sweet wort was then run into the kettle. The honey, grapes, Hawthorn fruit, and Chrysanthemum flowers were then added. The entire mixture was boiled for 45 minutes, and then cooled. The resulting sweet liquid was pitched with a fresh culture of Sake yeast and allowed to ferment a month before the transfer into a chilled secondary tank.
Looks interesting!

I had this one in the spring. It was very different from anything I've ever tasted. The flowers it's brewed with dominate the flavor, and in my opinion it wasn't very good. That being said, I don't regret trying it at least.

The Midas Touch along with other recipes are in his book, so I wouldn't be surprised if he released a homebrew version of this beer. Anyhow I'll have to pick one up from the store to try it first
