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!

Dogfish Head Craft Brewery Introduces 95 Calorie Slightly Mighty IPA

DFHslightlymightyDogfish Head Craft Brewery (Milton, Delaware) has officially announced that Slightly Mighty Lo-Cal IPA will launch on April 1.

“SLIGHT in cals and carbs with MIGHTY hop flavor”, Slightly Mighty is an American India Pale Ale that takes full advantage of the “culinary goodness” that is monk fruit – “an ancient Chinese delicacy that’s sweeter than sugar per ounce, so it amplifies the body and complexity in the beer, yet contains no calories.”  Coming in at just “4% ABV, 95 calories, 3.6g carbs, 1g protein and 0g fat per 12 oz. serving”, the super light, crisp and refreshing Slightly Mighty is still able to produce big “tropical notes of pineapple, coconut, mango and citrus, all while delivering an aromatic hop awesomeness that makes it so drinkable.”

“We developed the recipe for Slightly Mighty using similar methods of molecular-level research and culinary inspiration as we did to make SeaQuench Ale* – the most objectively thirst-quenching beer ever made by Dogfish,” said Sam Calagione, founder and CEO of Dogfish Head Craft Brewery. “Whereas most IPAs start with a formidable malt bill to balance hoppy bitterness with malty sweetness, Slightly Mighty goes about it a different way – all through the magic of monk fruit. Most light beers are watery and lack body. In terms of body, with Slightly Mighty, the monk fruit essentially acts as the beer’s skeleton, on which mighty hop muscle and flavor can be built. It allows us to reduce the malt bill and avoid any unnecessary unfermentable sugars, and consequently deliver a beer that is lower in calories and carbs all while being balanced and offering the complexity of a world class IPA.”

Slightly Mighty will begin shipping to select markets (MA, DC, MD, DE, IL, IN, MN, SD, WI, VA, IA, KS, MO, NE, PA, WV, NJ, KY, OH, MI) on April 1, and “additional states will be added throughout the Summer with full distribution by this Fall.”  Once fully released, you can expect to find this new Lo-Cal beer option available in 6-packs of 12 oz. cans, 12-packs of 12 oz. cans and on draft at craft beer-focused retailers, bars and restaurants located in Alabama, Florida, Delaware and throughout the rest of Dogfish Head’s distribution footprint.  Prost!

We’re listening, we heard you, and we think you’re going to love our wildly delicious SuperEIGHT.”

SuperEIGHT will officially launch in April and is scheduled to hang around through December 2019.  You can expect to find this Occasional Release available in 6-packs of 12 oz. cans and on draft at select craft beer-friendly establishments located in Alabama, Florida, Delaware and throughout the rest of Dogfish Head’s distribution area.  Prost!

Release – Occasional, April – December 2019
Style – Gose
ABV – 5.3%
Added Ingredients – Prickly pear, mango, boysenberry, blackberry, raspberry, elderberry, kiwi juices, quinoa & Hawaiian sea salt
Fun Fact – “Dogfish Head ‘developed’ the inspiration for this beer with friends from Kodak. In 2018, Calagione joined Kodak, a world-class technology company, to record an episode of their podcast The Kodakery, discussing analog processes in the digital age. During the podcast, Calagione learned that the heightened levels of acidity and vitamin C in certain beers could make them an ideal processing agent for film. As luck would have it, the Dogfish R&D team was working to create a new beer that had a similar profile and unique ingredient bill to the liquid needed for developing film. BOOM! Just like that … SuperEIGHT was born and specifically designed to process KODAK Super 8 Film. Early batches of the beer were sent to Kodak to begin development. A series of tests were done, and they successfully proved that SuperEIGHT can act as a film developer. So what’s next? Calagione is planning an epic, Dogfish Port-to-Port boat trip up this East coast this summer. He’ll be documenting part of his adventure on Super 8 Film which will be developed in SuperEIGHT beer and turned it into a short film. More details on the Port-to-Port trip will be announced on Earth Day, April 22.”

Dogfish Head Craft Brewery Unveils The Perfect Disguise DIPA

the-perfect-disguise-packaging-13_cropDogfish Head Craft Brewery (Milton, Delaware) has officially announced that The Perfect Disguise Double IPA will debut in early January as the newest offering to come out of the brewery’s Off-Centered Art Series.

The Perfect Disguise might be a Double India Pale Ale on paper, but a quick glance at this golden brew will make your brain believe that it is about to enjoy “a straightforward Kolsch with a crisp Kolsch yeast and traditional German malts and hops.”  Confusion continues to grow as you take a sip and discover that this beer has been double dry-hopped with “nearly 4lbs of German and American hops per barrel, bringing tropical flavors of citrus, tangerine, mango, gooseberries and peach.”  With German chit malt rounding everything off with a “luscious body and creamy mouthfeel”, The Perfect Disguise (8% ABV, 70 IBUs) circles back to its Bavarian influences one last time and leaves you questioning everything you once thought you knew about craft beer and beer styles.

“Our raison d’être at Dogfish is to innovate and not follow, so on this exploration of goodness in the world of IPAs we’ve chosen to chase the creative white space in the sphere of beer recipes, concepts and ideas and I think we nailed it with our adventurous take on a Double IPA with The Perfect Disguise,” said Sam Calagione, CEO and founder of Dogfish Head Craft Brewery. “We punched up the creativity by layering in two different yeasts which bring forth the most delicious flavor profiles from both a Kolsch and an IPA – a delicious experiment.”

The Perfect Disguise will launch in early January 2019 and is scheduled to hang around through April.  You can expect to find this new Limited Release brew available in 6-packs of 12 oz. bottles at craft beer-friendly establishments located in Alabama, Florida, Delaware, and throughout the rest of Dogfish Head’s distribution territory.  Prost!

Release – Limited/Off-Centered Art Series; January – April 2019
Style – Double India Pale Ale
ABV – 8%
IBUs – 70
Fun Fact – On the label artwork: “The artwork for The Perfect Disguise was brought to life and designed by highly acclaimed artist, Michael Hacker, who partnered with Dogfish Head for the 2019 Off-Centered Art Series. The name “The Perfect Disguise” was the inspiration for the illustration design as it’s a play on words with whether or not the beer is actually a Kolsch or an American IPA. Hacker artfully portrayed that mystery by creating a German waiter dressed in lederhosen as a nod to the Kolsch style and added a hop popping out from his neck and controlling the robot, which represents the American IPA. The bright yellow and orange packaging is a nod to the golden color of the beer.”

Dogfish Head Craft Brewery & the Grateful Dead Reunite for 2019 American Beauty

american-beauty-press-photos-11Dogfish Head Craft Brewery (Milton, Delaware) has once again teamed up with the iconic Grateful Dead band to revive American Beauty, a fan-favorite collaboration beer, for the entirety of 2019.

First released back in 2013, American Beauty is an American Pale Ale brewed with “granola and succulent wildflower honey which adds toasty, sweet notes to this hoppy ale.”  The decision to use granola came after Dogfish Head and the Grateful Dead “jointly reached out to their fan base with a call out for ingredient suggestions to incorporate into the recipe of the beer. Loyal dead heads and off-centered ale enthusiasts submitted more than 1500 ingredient suggestions, and after careful thought (and chuckles at some of the entries,) it was granola for the win.”  American Beauty clocks in at 6.5% ABV “to commemorate the year the Grateful Dead was formed (1965).”

“After more than 50 years of performing in front of fans all over the world, folks remain fiercely loyal to the Grateful Dead due to the organically imaginative, creative and accessible culture they nurture across all artistic platforms,” said Sam Calagione, CEO and founder of Dogfish Head. “We, at Dogfish, are inspired by their music, along with their unprecedented ability to bridge long-lasting, meaningful connections with fans for decades on end. We’re thrilled to collaborate with the Dead for a second iteration of American Beauty and hope fans of free-spirited music and independent beer will join in welcoming back this classic pale ale.”

American Beauty is rolling out this month and has plans to hang around through 2019.  You can expect to find this “Occasional” Release available in 6-packs of 12 oz. bottles at select craft beer-friendly establishments located in Alabama, Florida, Delaware and throughout the rest of Dogfish Head’s distribution area.  Prost!

ipas-for-the-holidays-20Dogfish Head Craft Brewery (Milton, Delaware) has officially announced that it will bring “joy to world” with the early November release of its IPA for the Holidays Variety Pack.

Assembled to be the holiday-themed 12-pack that “has all of your festive beer needs covered”, IPA for the Holidays contains “4 varieties of IPA goodness in one special box . . ., including an homage to ‘reds and whites’ for the vino lovers in the bunch.” For the red wine fans out there, Sixty One is a “beer-wine mashup” that marries “two Dogfish Head innovations – beer-wine hybrids featuring Syrah grape must and continually hopped IPAs.” For those that prefer white wines, Viniferous IPA is a “beer-wine hybrid . . . fermented with Riesling & Viognier grape must and hopped with Hallertau Blanc, Huell Melon and El Dorado to match the dry, fruity complexity of a Riesling with the hoppiness of an IPA.”  Sixty One and Viniferous IPA are available exclusively in the IPA for the Holidays Variety Pack alongside two Dogfish Head Year-Round favorites, 60 Minute IPA and 90 Minute IPA.

For more information on all four beers included in the IPA for the Holidays Variety Pack, here are the descriptions that the brewery provided for each beer in its press release:

  • 60 Minute IPA – A continually hopped super-fantastic East Coast IPA brewed with a slew of great Northwest hops for a powerful, but balanced, citrusy hop character.  ABV – 6%  IBUs – 60

  • Sixty One (available exclusively in the IPA for the Holidays Variety Pack) – A marriage of two Dogfish Head innovations: beer-wine hybrids and continually hopped IPAs.

  • Viniferous IPA (available exclusively in the IPA for the Holidays Variety Pack) – Fermented with Riesling and Viognier grape must and hopped with Hallertau Blanc, Huell Melon and El Dorado to match the dry, fruity complexity of a Riesling with the hoppiness of an IPA.  ABV – 6%  IBUs – 50

Each IPA for the Holidays Variety 12-Pack contains three 12 oz. bottles of each of the four beers listed above.   The IPA for the Holidays Variety Pack also “features a special gift tag that can be personalized”, making it “a great gift for holiday parties.”

“We’ve been experimenting with continual hopping and inventive beer-wine hybrid concoctions since we first opened our doors twenty-three years ago at our brewpub in Rehoboth,” said Sam Calagione, founder and CEO of Dogfish Head Craft Brewery. “From angling a vibrating football game over a 5-barrel kettle with a bucket of pelletized hops hanging over it – which brought us 90 Minute Imperial IPA and paved the way for 60 Minute and 120 Minute IPA – to blending grape juice and must in the brewing process with beers like Midas Touch, Noble Rot and Red & White; we take great pride in pushing the boundaries of experimentation in brewing at Dogfish and are excited to move ahead into 2019 and beyond as we continue to stoke the flames of creativity in craft beer.”

The IPA for the Holidays Variety Pack will release in early November 2018 and hang around as long as supplies last.  You can expect to find this variety 12-pack at select craft beer-focused retailers located in Alabama, Florida, Delaware and throughout the rest of Dogfish Head’s distribution footprint.  Prost!

 

 

 

 

Dogfish Head Craft Brewery Announces Limited Return of 75 Minute IPA

DFH75MinuteDogfish Head Craft Brewery (Milton, Delaware) is officially introducing a new artist and beer lineup for its Off-Centered Art Series with the return of 75 Minute IPA in October.

75 Minute IPA – a name that references the combination of 60 Minute IPA and 90 Minute IPA, “two Dogfish innovations in continual hopping” – is a “classic” India Pale Ale brewed with “maple syrup from Sam Calagione’s (founder and CEO of Dogfish Head) family farm, . . . continually hopped during the entire boil, and then dry hopped with a slew of cascade hops.”  Fittingly coming in at 7.5% ABV and 75 IBUs, 75 Minute IPA offers a sensory experience that is “malty and earthy with citrusy-piney notes, balanced with subtle maple notes.”

This release of 75 Minute IPA will also be wearing some new label artwork now that Michael Hacker, a talented freelance artist, has taken over the brewery’s Off-Centered Art Series, “a lineup of four beers representing the creative expression that occurs at the intersection of ales and art, featuring a new illustrator each year.”  Hacker’s Off-Centered Art Series illustrations “will roll out over the next 18 months and include: 75 Minute IPA, The Perfect Disguise (8%) – an American double dry-hopped IPA disguised as a Kölsch, Dragons & YumYums (6.5%) – a lip smackingly tropical pale ale, and Punkin Ale (7%) – a full bodied brown ale brewed with real pumpkin.”

“Creative beer labels have become a fun focal point of the craft beer scene, defining brands and bringing beers to life through visuals,” said Calagione. “Since 2008, we’ve been collaborating with wildly inventive illustrators from around the world, and I couldn’t be more excited to continue the tradition with our friend, Michael Hacker, as we visually share new stories about our inventive beers.”

75 Minute IPA is hitting distribution now and is scheduled to stick around through December 2018.  You can expect to find this Limited Release available in 6-packs of 12 oz. bottles and on draft at craft beer-friendly establishments located in Alabama, Florida, Delaware and throughout the rest of Dogfish Head’s distribution territory.  Prost!
