	So have you tried this combination yet?  I'd be interested.

	One of the herb magazines has an article on herbal beers.  I was
thinking about trying some out.  The article used them mostly as flavoring
and not as the principle ingredient.  One of the ones that looked like it
might be good was the yarrow.  Which would be a bittering agent.
