Notes/Commercial Description:
For this ambitious liquid time capsule, we used ingredients and traditions plucked from Egyptian hieroglyphics.

Ta Henket is brewed with an ancient form of wheat and loaves of hearth-baked bread, and it's flavored with chamomile, dom-palm fruit and Middle Eastern herbs. To ferment this earthy ancient ale, Sam and friends traveled to Cairo, set out baited petri dishes and captured a native Egyptian saccharomyces yeast strain.

One of the most interesting beers I've ever had through and through. Being Middle Easter, this is right up my alley. 55 year old parents loved it too!
Chamomile, za'atar and doum fruit are perfectly intertwined into this awesome, (but a tad pricey), session ale.
