Little Earth Project Breckland Braggot

Braggot is traditionally made with 50% malt and 50% honey and it has a fascinating history, dating right back to Medieval times. In fact, it is used in Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales to evocatively describe the sweet lips of the carpenter’s wife:
‘Her mouth was sweete as bragot or the meeth,
Or hoord of apples leyd in hey or heeth. ‘
Our interpretation of this historic beer was made with Suffolk hops, barley and honey from the north Suffolk Breckland. It was fermented with our own wild yeast and aged in a whisky barrel. Not surprisingly, it has picked up some really interesting, funky flavours that are continuing to develop and mature all the time. It is very much a drink to sip and savour!
