This beer is the merging of two incredible stories. The style Kottbusser, named after the German town it comes from, is brewed with honey, oats, molasses, wheat, barley and hops. Similar in style to a Pilsner cross Cream Ale, this beer was made illegal in 1516 and forgotten to time by the Reinheitsgebot purity law and remains one of the rarer styles of beer today. The Phoenix Dactylifera, was brought back from extinction after a 2000 year old seed found in the tomb of Herod the Great, was planted and sprouted! The oldest seed to germinate on record.
