BREWERY DESCRIPTION:

With the help of biomolecular archaeologist Dr. Patrick McGovern, we've re-created another Ancient Ale, this time from the Nordic climes of Scandinavia.

In ancient Europe, before wine arrived from the Near East, alcoholic beverages were cocktails of sugar-rich ingredients like honey, fruit and grain. With the help of biomolecular archaeologist Dr. Patrick McGovern and Swedish brewer Lasse Ericsson, Dogfish Head is re-creating another ancient hybrid ale, this time from the Nordic climes of Scandinavia. 'Last year, we brewed an Ancient Ale from southern Europe,' says Dogfish Head Founder and President Sam Calagione, 'so it's been interesting to see the differences driven by the Scandinavian climate and terroir.' 

The recipe for Kvasir was developed with the help of chemical, botanical and pollen evidence taken from a 3,500-year-old Danish drinking vessel. The vessel, made of birch bark, was found in the tomb of a leather-clad woman Dr. Pat says was probably an upper-class dancer or priestess. The analysis pointed to the ingredients used in this unique brew: wheat, lingonberries, cranberries, myrica gale, yarrow, honey and birch syrup.

The base of Kvasir is a toasty red winter wheat, and the bog-grown berries deliver a pungent tartness. While a handful of hops is used, the earthy, bitter counterpunch to the sweet honey and birch syrup comes from the herbs.

Food Pairing Recommendations: 
Sweet-and-sour pork, beef tacos with pickled vegetables, smoked salmon, root vegetables, fresh gingerbread
