Tony's artwork for NABC Artemsia, Jenever.
Here are NABC artist-in-residence Tony Beard's depictions of the two newest "gruit ales" created by brewmasters Jesse Williams and Jared Williamson.
Artemsia Ale ... brown ale brewed with 80% Simpson's Golden Promise two-row and molasses, and flavored with mugwort (the "dream herb," related to sagebrush and a cousin of wormwood), sweet orange peel and chamomile. 4.5% abv.
Jenever Rye ... 80% Simpson's Golden Promise two-row and rye, with crushed juniper berries in the mash and the hopback. Golden orange. Circa 7% abv.
