About Dogfish Ancient Ales:
You might not know it, but medieval Germans nearly ruined beer forever.
In 1516, a purity law called the Reinheitsgebot mandated that beer be made with only water, hops and barley. (The role of yeast hadn't yet been discovered.) Thanks to that bit of brewing censorship and the bastardized recipes of modern brewing conglomerates, beer drinkers have been subjected to bland lager for a long, long time.
In 1995, Dogfish Head broke the shackles and started brewing extreme, exotic, extraordinary beers, and we've been thumbing our noses at the Reinheitsgebot ever since. We experimented with whatever ingredients we found in our brewpub pantry, things like chicory, licorice root, maple syrup, honey, pumpkin, raisins and brown sugar. People called us freaks, but we loved those full-flavored beers and so did our customers, so we stuck to our guns.
Turns out, we were the ones making traditional beers.
In 1999, Dogfish Head started working closely with Dr. Patrick McGovern, one of the world's leading experts in ancient beverages. He helped us uncover the traditions of ancient brewers. Like us, those ancient brewers made the most of the ingredients they had on hand, and their beers were as colorful and creative as their cultures.
