Dogfish Head Adds Wood-Aged Bitches Brew Stout to Year-Round Lineup

DFHWABitchesBrewsixerDogfish Head Craft Brewery (Milton, Delaware) announced today that Wood-Aged Bitches Brew Stout will officially begin its Year-Round release in mid-January.

Originally brewed to honor the 40th anniversary of Miles Davis’ 1970 landmark jazz-rock record, Bitches Brew is making a triumphant return in 2018 “with a new, wood-centric spin.”  Now dubbed Wood-Aged Bitches Brew, this musically inspired offering is “a fusion of three threads of imperial stout aged on oak and one thread of Tej, a native African honey beer, aged on Palo Santo.”  After being aged and blended “in giant oak and Palo Santo wood tanks”, the 9% ABV Wood-Aged Bitches Brew emerges to offer “vanilla, chocolatey-licorice wood aromas with a sweet, roasty, coffee flavor finish.”

“We’ve been waiting for the right moment to reintroduce Bitches Brew and thought wood-aging it in our massive 10,000 gallon oak and Palo tanks would be the perfect innovative complement to a beer that was inspired by a culturally transformative record born out of a union of rock and roll and jazz – continuing the cycle of innovation through inspiration,” said Sam Calagione, founder and CEO of Dogfish Head Craft Brewery.

Wood-Aged Bitches Brew will officially begin hitting shelves and taps on January 19.  You can expect to find this new Year-Round offering available in 6-packs of 12 oz. bottles and on draft at craft beer establishments located in Alabama, Florida, Delaware and throughout the rest of Dogfish Head’s distribution area.  Prost!
