Curiosity on M'ANIS

"Secret ingredient” or “ingredient secret"?

People say that beer M’ANIS 8.6 has some special virtues and that whoever drinks it, may have good night’s rest and sweet dreams.
Is this thanks to a secret ingredient? No, the legend truth is the secret of its ingredient: lops!
Lops, whose scientific name is Humulus lupulus L., is used in the brewing to give the typical bitter taste but it has also some relaxing and calming gifts mostly for people who suffer from insomnia or nervousness.
8.6 type has bigger quantity of lops but this does not increase its bitterness as double-malt supports it.
