Chicory was one of the first beers we started brewing at our pub back when it opened in 1995. It’s a dark beer made with a bunch of roasted chicory, organic Mexican coffee, St. John’s Wort and licorice root. We use whole-leaf Cascade and Fuggle hops, as well as pale, roasted and oatmeal grains.
Back in 1995, we had a teeny, tiny brewing system and had to brew all day, every day to keep the bar stocked. Brewing with the same four ingredients got really boring really quickly. That’s when Sam’s ADD kicked in and he started adding some nontraditional ingredeints. (Source)comments powered by Disqus
