Dogfish Head Craft Brewery Introduces New Off-Centered Art Series Artist with Release of 75 Minute IPA

75minute-stiles-packaging-3_cropDogfish Head Craft Brewery (Milton, Delaware) has officially announced that 75 Minute IPA will return in late October 2019 to act as the first release in the brewery’s 2019-2020 Off-Centered Art Series featuring artwork from Dan Stiles.

First introduced back in 2011 as a “twist on the brewery’s classic, continually hopped series,” 75 Minute IPA is an American India Pale Ale “brewed with New England maple syrup, continually hopped throughout the entire boil and dry hopped with a slew of Cascade hops.”  Coming in at 7.5% ABV and 75 IBUs, 75 Minute IPA is a “malty, full-bodied . . . beer with citrusy-pine hop flavors balanced by subtle maple notes.”

This year’s batch of 75 Minute IPA has the distinction of introducing Dan Stiles as the latest collaborating artist in Dogfish Head’s Off-Centered Art Series, “an annual collection of four beers that personifies the creative expression at the intersection of ales and art.” Based out of Portland, Oregon, Dan Stiles is “an acclaimed illustrator and author . . . “[that has] spent 25 years creating visuals for indie bands, global brands and everyone in between.”

Stiles’ vision for this year’s 75 Minute IPA artwork is steampunk-themed and “portrays a man wearing a top hat; an image created entirely by pieces of metalwork commonly seen in a brewery – pipes, cogs, hoses, bolts. In his hand, the character holds a maple leaf and a hop cone to represent the hoppy, maple syrup-infused nectar that is 75 Minute IPA. His only eye beckons to drinkers, daring them to crack open a bottle.”

“Each year, I look forward to watching the visions of our collaborating artists come to life. It’s always astounding to see how well they can integrate their personal styles with our brand’s unique personality to tell the off-centered stories of our beers,” said Sam Calagione, founder of Dogfish Head. “I’m beyond excited and impressed by Dan’s interpretation of 75 Minute IPA. He’s definitely set the bar pretty high for the rest of his Art Series creations – and I can’t wait to see them come to fruition!”

75 Minute IPA is scheduled to release in late October 2019 and this hoppy, maple goodness will stick around through January 2020.  You can expect to find this Limited Release available in 6-packs of 12 oz. bottles and on draft at select craft beer-friendly spots located in Alabama, Florida, Delaware and throughout the rest of Dogfish Head’s 45-state distribution area.  Prost!
