(Milton, DE) – Dogfish Head sent out its May newsletter this morning. Here is the latest…
Urkontinent: [Also known informally as the Google beer collaboration] The careful combination of ingredients gives this 8.1% ABV Belgian dubbel notes of coffee and chocolate-covered cherries. “It’s a complex beer that starts with a ton of mouthfeel, some molasses and roasty notes,” says Sam Calagione, “then ends clean and dry.”
Tweason’ale: Our gluten-free beer is back! With Tweason’ale, we replaced the classic barley foundation of beer with a mild sorghum base. The hints of molasses and pit-fruit are balanced by vibrant strawberry notes and a unique complexity that comes with the addition of a malty buckwheat honey. 6% ABV
Namaste: A witbier bursting with good karma. Made with dried organic orange slices, fresh-cut lemongrass and a bit of coriander, this Belgian-style white beer is a great thirst quencher. 5% ABV
Ta Henket: For this ambitious liquid time capsule, we used ingredients and traditions plucked from Egyptian hieroglyphics. Ta Henket is brewed with an ancient form of wheat and loaves of hearth-baked bread, and it’s flavored with chamomile, doum-palm fruit and Middle Eastern herbs. 4.5% ABV
Theobroma: It was on “Thee Schedule” for April, after all. Here’s the deal: As Theobroma fans know, this Ancient Ale is made with a boatload of chocolate from our friends at Askinosie in Springfield, Mo. We asked for so much this time around that it took a little longer to get it all to us. So, never fear. Theobroma will be here … just a little later than planned.
