So not many people are writing about historic brewing these days, but  
up here in Quebec there have been some interesting commercial beers  
appearing that are brewed without hops. Usually they are made by  
smaller craft breweries that do not have long term contracts to obtain  
hops supplies.
Example; Microbrasserei du Lievre in Mont Laurier has brewed a Blanche  
seasoned with wormwood. Well balanced, easy to drink, technically it  
is a gruit, although it is designed to be be drunk by ordinary people  
who just want to drink a refreshing Blanche.
