VBW Beer School: Party Like It’s 999

Taste through a flight of ancient style brews with the folks from Howl and Salt Spring Island Ales and learn what people brewing up a millenia ago.

Have you ever wondered what people were drinking 1000 years ago? Ancient ales were often brewed as medicine involving lunar ritual, divine intervention, and a bounty of regional wild herbs. They very rarely contained hops, and brewers had no idea what yeast was, but the end result was often delicious and the recipes were then passed down from one generation to the next.
