Rise of the Burghers and the fall of the Feudal Lords is an herbed ale brewed with a mix of cereals and bittered with hops and horehound (also known as mountain hops, or berghopfen in German). Rise of the Burghers was inspired by the little-talked-about era of brewing dominated by german Burgher brewers between 800 and 1300 AD. This era of sea trade via the free towns of the Hanseatic Trading League brought about a revolution in brewing throughout northern Europe. Increased production scale, technological advancement, and access to a steady supply of materials from throughout the trade network created a new era of commercial brewing that would change both the ale and the trade for generations.
