There is a guy in Headford, Galway recreating really old brews. Using Irish herbs instead of hops, and rediscovering what they got up to hundreds / thousands of years ago.

He says that they used hot stones to control mash temps. Also some kind of "hole in the ground" technique?

Sounds facinating.

I went along, either last year or the year before and it was a blast. They cooked all the food in those earth pits using heated rocks, well that and roasting a pig on a spit <!-- s:D --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_biggrin.gif" alt=":D" title="Very Happy" /><!-- s:D -->

It's really just a private party in one guy's garden, but they've invited us along in [url=http&#58;//www&#46;beoir&#46;org/community/viewtopic&#46;php?p=18661#p18661:ebonnut0]previous years[/url:ebonnut0].
