International Arms Race Zero IBU IPA

This is a strange one for sure. Brew Dog is collaborating with Flying Dog to create an IPA with absolutely no hops. This style of beer is known as Gruit. Wikipedia explains that “Gruit ales were commonly brewed with herbs and spices like sweet gale (Myrica gale), mugwort (Artemisia vulgaris), yarrow (Achillea millefolium), ground ivy (Glechoma hederacea), horehound (Marrubium vulgare), and heather (Calluna vulgaris).” These herbs and spices are actually mild to moderate narcotics! Gruit was also brewed with spices like cinnamon, ginger, and caraway seeds. The International Arms Race Zero IBU IPA will be available this June in Mid-Atlantic U.S. and UK.
