International Gruit Day 2018

International #GruitDay

February 1st, 2018 

What is a Gruit Beer ?

It’s a beer that uses an ingredient – other than hops as its primary bettering agent – like the use of Juniper or Bog Myrtle. 

What is #GruitDay ?

Since 2013, craft brewers with an interest in making gruit ales have banded together to mark February 1 as International Gruit Day. The day is intended to pay homage to the historical traditions of brewing with botanicals.


You can participate in Gruit Day by posting to social media using the hashtag #GruitDay
