He's baaacckkk...that is the mad Professor of beer, Fritz Briem of the Weihenstephan school of brewing. He’s the mind that made the 1809 Berliner that we enjoyed during the IBC Oktoberfest.

Professor Briem spiced this beer with lorbeer (bay leaves), ingwer (ginger), kummel (caraway), anis (anise), rosemarin (rosemary), and enzian (gentian). It is brewed with water, wheat & barley malt, hopped with “pollinated wild hops,” and fermented using top-fermenting yeast. ...
On a personal note, we never understood what we wanted from a gruit until we had this beer, but now it’s clear: it’s beer tea! And it’s effing delicious!
