Those are my Juniper Berries!

Dogfish Head Sah TeaI couldn’t help but think of Monty Python when I took my first sip of Dogfish Head’s Sah’Tea, described by the brewery as a modern take on a 9th-century Finnish beer.  It’s fermented with a German weizen yeast and brewed with black tea, cardamom, cinnamon, ginger, cloves and black pepper and …juniper berries.  First sip I’m thinkin’ “And now for something really different!” Second sip and I’m thinking about the Holy Man in the Life of Brian who broke his vow of silence after 18 years to defend his Juniper bushes.
