Dogfish Head Craft Brewery (Milton, Delaware) recently announced the limited release of IPAs for the Holidays, a variety 12-pack that exclusively includes Sixty One.
It is well known that the holidays are a time of celebration and togetherness. Fully committed to that spirit, Dogfish Head Craft Brewery is celebrating its “commitment to continual hopping” this year by bringing four beers that feature this innovation together in one limited-edition, mixed 12-pack known simply as IPAs for the Holidays. This Variety Pack includes the following “exclusive beer-wine hybrid” and three old favorites (3 bottles of each beer in each pack):
- Sixty One – 12-pack EXCLUSIVE! A marriage of two Dogfish Head innovations: beer-wine hybrids and continually hopped IPAs. Dogfish took its best-selling 60 Minute and added Syrah grape must to create an IPA with equal parts fruity complexity and pungent hoppiness.
- 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.
- 90 Minute IPA – A continually hopped Imperial IPA whose powerful malt backbone stands up to the extreme hopping rate for a pungent, not crushing flavor.
- Indian Brown Dark IPA – A boisterous brown ale meets well-hopped IPA is brewed with aromatic dark malt, organic brown sugar and dry-hopped liberally for your holiday-drinking pleasure.
“Our journey with IPAs and continual hopping began twenty-two years ago at our brewpub in Rehoboth, where we angled a vibrating football game over a 5-barrel kettle with a bucket of pelletized hops hanging over it,” says Sam Calagione, founder and CEO of Dogfish Head Craft Brewery. “This super unique method allowed us to control the rate of hops entering the boil – with one hop dose each minute – paving the way for classic Dogfish beers like 60 Minute and 90 Minute IPA and opening the door for more adventurous IPA hybrid creations like Sixty One. IPAs for the Holidays is our gift to indie craft beer friends that rally behind pushing the boundaries of traditional brewing and enjoy drinking delicious, inventive IPAs – cheers!”
IPA for Holidays is hitting shelves now and will be available as long as supplies last. You can track this limited-edition 12-pack down at craft beer-focused retailers located in Alabama, Florida, Delaware, and throughout the rest of Dogfish Head’s distribution footprint. Prost!
