Did you know that hops only became used for flavouring beer some time in the Middle Ages, and that before then brewers used a mixture of other semi-random herbs called gruit? Gruit beers are now seeing something of a resurgence with modern micro-breweries taking inspiration from history and local sources of herbs and flavourings.

I just learnt this myself, and am now curious to seek out and try some of these gruit beers.
