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, cardamom, cinnamon, ginger, cloves and black pepper.
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.
