Week of July 28, 2008

Dogfish Head Off-Kilter Sixers

Starting a few months ago, all our good karma finally paid off thanks to a nice man named John, and selected sixth barrels of rare Dogfish Head specialties began crossing the threshold of Cellar # 3, NABC’s top-secret storage facility. All except one have never before been poured at the Public House. All of the following descriptions are from the brewery’s web site.

Brewed with luscious apricots and finished with whole-leaf hops. A "fruit beer for hop heads," according to Ale Street News. Fruity, citrusy, cedar, thirst-quenching.

Black and Blue
A Belgian-style strong ale fermented with blackberries and blueberries.

Burton Baton
A blend of oak-aged English strong ale and our 90 Minute IPA. Citrus notes from Northwestern hops meld with vanilla notes from the oak.
10.0% abv

Immort Ale
Vast in character, luscious & complex. Brewed with peat-smoked barley, this strong ale is brewed with organic juniper berries, vanilla & maple syrup. It's aged on oak and fermented with a blend of English & Belgian yeasts.

Palo Santo Marron (Holy Tree Brown)
An unfiltered, unfettered, unprecedented brown ale aged in handmade wooden brewing vessels. The caramel and vanilla complexity unique to this beer comes from the exotic Paraguayan Palo Santo wood from which these tanks were crafted. Palo Santo means "holy tree" and its wood is used in South American wine-making communities. This beer is a 12% abv, highly roasty, and malty brown ale aged on the Palo Santo wood. It was a huge hit at our Rehoboth Beach brewpub when first released in November of 2006, so it's coming back... into full production! At 10,000 gallons each, these are the largest wooden brewing vessels built in America since before Prohibition.

Red & White
A big, belgian-style Wit brewed with coriander and orange peel and fermented with Pinot Noir juice. After fermentation a fraction of the batch is aged in Oregon Pinot Noir barrels, and another fraction is aged on oak staves. The beer is blended together before packaging. This has been one of our most popular Limited Edition beers at both our Rehoboth Beach, DE brewpub and at festivals. It successfully marries the refreshing citrusy qualities of a Belgian-style white beer with the robust complexity of a bold red wine.
