Yarrow Pale Ale (YPA)

FREE

This recipe for a YPA came to me one summer afternoon after mowing the lawn. Yarrow, thyme, and savory have spilled out of my wife’s herb garden to become part of the lawn in one place, and they inevitably get mowed along with the dandelions and weeds.  The aroma was amazing, and so is the beer.
