Birra Etrusca

From Dogshead: Sneak peek of new Ancient Ale

The backbone of Birra Etrusca comes from two-row malted barley and an heirloom Italian wheat called senatore capelli.
Specialty ingredients include hazelnut flour, pomegranates, Italian chestnut honey, Delaware wildflower honey and clover honey. A handful of whole-flower hops are added, but the bulk of the bitterness comes from Ethiopian myrrh resin and the sasparilla-like gentian root.

To add complexity and variety, each brewery will ferment Birra Etrusca differently. Dogfish will use bronze, Baladin will use wood, and Birra del Borgo will use terra cotta.
