England

It was on the island now known as England, but it was before the Angles took over. Patrick was a British Celt.

Looks like fruit with a g. Perhaps it means the grape family?

You got it, Pirate! The exact mixture of herbs varied from one brewer to another, but it typically included sweet gale, yarrow, and rosemary. It was popular through the high middle ages, after which hops began its ascent, eventually displacing gruit entirely. A few companies today make non-hopped ales using gruit or similar herb combinations. Gruit allegedly induced euphoria and enhanced the sexual drive, while hops had the opposite effect. But hops had a preservative effect that enhanced beer's shelf life.

Going back to 1991 the Swedish Bikini Team was a group of American female models who appeared in an advertising campaign for what beer?

Well, I have to return to Port de Paix tomorrow but I'll answer your question. The Swedish Bikini Team was active in 1980, not 1991. Were they with Miller Lite Beer?

Nope. Not 1980 or Miller Lite . They were also on the front cover of the January 1992 PLAYBOY magazine that sold at the newsstand price of $4.95

I don't know if this will help or not but feel free to cheat in 24 hours of the first posting of the question. It is an American beer and it's not Miller Lite so take a stab at it.

Members of the team

The Swedish Bikini Team were played by American actresses wearing platinum blonde wigs.

Uma Thorensen Avalon Anders
Karin Kristensen Suzanna Keller
Hilgar Oblief Heather Elizabeth Parkhurst
Eva Jacobsen Jane Frances
Ulla Swensen Peggy Trentini

The team appeared outside of the commercial campaign on several occasions including on the cover and a pictorial in Playboy and on a Married... with Children episode, "The Gas Station Show". They also had a non speaking appearance on a schooner on an episode of The Adventures of Mark and Brian, where Mark and Brian underwent US Coast Guard training and were attempting to impress the girls by being coasties and asking if they needed rescuing (to which their jet ski then embarrassingly capsizes).

The team, played by different actresses, also starred in the video Never Say Never Mind: The Swedish Bikini Team with John Rhys-Davies.

The movies Beerfest and Boat Trip include female Swedish teams, inspired by the originals.

Team member Heather Elizabeth Parkhurst appeared on Ken Reid's TV Guidance Counselor podcast on April 22, 2015 and discussed the Swedish Bikini Team at length.
