I made a scottish strong ale using Sweet Gale and Heather tips.  This was a Pro Mash recipe that I upsized to 6.5 gallons.
The recipe called for 0.50 gm of Sweet Gale and 1 oz. of heather tips.  Also 1 oz of Kent goldings.
This created a Quality of bitternes barely perceptibly different from all hops.  Next time I intend to double the amount of heather. 
Any Strong Ale recipe should work.  For my next batch I intend to use 1-2 lb. of peated malt.  
Read Sacred and Herbal Healing Beers by Stephen Harrod Buhner, Brewers Publications, Boulder, CO for more info on herbs.  This should be availible at your library or by interlibrary loan.
