CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/21/14 -- Big Rock Brewery Inc. ("Big Rock") (TSX:BR) is proud to announce its first Alchemist Edition release of 2014, Monk's Misery. Big Rock's Brewmaster, Paul Gautreau, reached deep into the history books to create this gruit, a fragrant beer style that pre-dates the use of hops.
The ancient art of gruit craftsmanship employs a dynamic blend of exotic ingredients like wormwood, mugwort, lavender and heather tips. These unique ingredients were combined with a blend of four malts (plus a single hop cone so this brew could be labelled as a beer). Brewmaster Paul explained, "The rare and ancient gruit style has piqued my curiosity since I first learned of these beers. Replacing hops with exotic ingredients like mugwort and wormwood produced an unusual but very pleasurable complexity of flavour."
Only 2,850 numbered bottles are being produced, making this brew one of our most limited releases. Available in a 650ml bomber bottle, Monk's Misery makes its appearance March 21st, 2014 in Alberta. To find out where you can get a bottle of Monk's Misery, visit our website at www.bigrockbeer.com or follow us on Twitter and Facebook for all the latest updates.
