    I think the neatest part of these projects is how closely the brewers work with the historians, archaeologists, and anthropologists. The resultant beverage is obviously important, as well, but such interdisciplinary collaboration is really awesome, IMO.

    Exactly. This is the science of the art of the science right here. Honestly, I could not care for these beers and still have a respect for the craftsmanship put into them.

    I love the idea of beers like this. Another one I really enjoyed in this style that was not mentioned in the article, was Stone's Stochastiicty Project Release, Your Father Smelt of Elderberries. It has mixed reviews, but I loved it personally. I wish they would brew it again.
