Sah'tea

Availability:

Original Release Date:

This Ancient Ale is a modern take on a 9th-century Finnish beer.

The wort for Sah'tea is caramelized over white-hot river rocks, and the beer is fermented with a German weizen yeast. In addition to juniper berries foraged from the Finnish countryside, Sah'tea is flavored with black tea.

The spicing is subtle and balanced, and Sah'tea is a highly-quaffable, truly unique brew with a full mouthfeel.

Sah'tea was first brewed at the small brewery in our Rehoboth Beach pub. The birth of Sah'tea was chronicled in a New Yorker article by Burkhard Bilger.

For the story behind the story of Sah'tea, check out our Quick Sip Clip. To get a sneak peek on our first brew day of Sah'tea, check out the other videos.
