Dogfish Head Craft Brewery (Milton, Delaware) has officially announced that it will begin the Limited Release of Where the Wild Hops Are in January 2022.
The first offering to rock the artwork of Max Mahn, a well-known printmaker and illustrator from Missoula, Montana and the 2022 artist for Dogfish Head’s Off-Centered Art Series, Where the Wild Hops Are is an unfiltered, “rustic” American India Pale Ale “brewed with Zappa, Amarillo, Comet and Sabro hops and blended with a touch of wild ale aged for four years in French Oak barrels.” Coming in at 6.5% ABV and 45 IBUs, Where the Wild Hops Are‘s “slightly tart yet juicy fruit flavors and dry, oak-tinged finish are sure to satiate drinkers, transporting their palettes to the universe of off-centered goodness.”
“Here at Dogfish Head, we see brewing as a work of art; the creative interaction between traditional brewing, off-centered techniques and high-quality culinary ingredients being our medium and drinkers, our muse,” said Sam Calagione, Dogfish Head Founder & Brewer. “We were so excited about Max’s interpretation of Where the Wild Hops Are that we decided to create a limited-edition, long-sleeve T-shirt and a ‘gig’ poster of our own, so drinkers can not only taste the art through the beer, but they can also wear it or display it in their home.”
Where the Wild Hops Are is available now and scheduled to hang around through March 2022. You can expect to find this Limited Release available in 6-packs of 12 oz. bottles and on draft at craft beer-focused establishments located in Alabama, Florida, Delaware and throughout the rest of Dogfish Head’s distribution network. Prost!

Fun Fact – On Max Mahn, the artist for Dogfish Head’s 2022 Off-Centered Art Series: “Throughout his career, Max has worked with clients of all shapes and sizes, from pizzerias and film festivals to newspapers and breweries, and his favorite, bands. During this time, he has created gig posters for the likes of many notable acts, including My Morning Jacket, Ween, Wilco, Disco Biscuits and more. ‘I’ve been drawing weird things for as long as I can remember,’ said Max. ‘Most of my posters are based off lyrics or the general sound / aesthetic of that specific band. Those things don’t exist for a beer. For beer, I’m personally creating the aesthetic for that specific drink. So, it was fun to think up different imagery and stories that would in the end define the beer itself.'”
