Welcome to the new homepage of International Gruit Day!

International Gruit Day was founded by Beaus All Natural Brewing Company, Vankleek Hill, Ontario, Canada, in 2013. Over the years many breweries from different countries and continents joined the project and celebrated International Gruit Day every year on February 1st. Meanwhile the colleagues of Beaus are no longer brewing Gruit Beer so they cancelled their activities and also their website www.gruitday.com - now it´s owned by a company offering bedding systems.
