Re: Dogfish Head's newest Ancient Ale: Etruscan Beer

I can't remember when historians think people started using hops, but I'm under the impression that it was long after the Etruscans.

If the beer has notes of church incense, I wonder if it has any frankensence (sp?) in it? I ran across a recent story that the tree it comes from is under threat from changes in North African agricultural practices, with a note that the tree can also be raised in the American Southwest.
