Dogfish Head It’s The End Of the Wort As We Know It, a “nutrient-rich survival beer” on January 27th.
With an overt nod to the band R.E.M.’s seminal 90’s track, Dogfish Head It’s The End Of the Wort As We Know It will make a limited appearance at the Delaware brewery later this month.
Using nutrient-rich superfoods like including purple sweet potatoes, rose hips, chia seed, flax seed, spelt, oats and quinoa, Dogfish Head created a beer with 8x more Vitamin B than the leading light lager. Additionally, “End of the Wort” boasts 90% of the daily recommended serving of folic acid. That means this beer can fight anemia better than most beers. In an ironic twist, folate deficiency can be caused by alcoholism. (Life is confusing.)
In true “Off-Centered” fashion, each of the 200 bottles of Dogfish Head It’s The End Of the Wort As We Know It will sport a brewery branded Swiss Army Knife, survival blanket, and paracord. Everything you need to survive a wilderness drinking situation.
“We are not making any health claims in association with this beer. We are merely sharing our brewing process and the culinary ingredients we chose for the recipe that are rich in alluring aromas and flavors.” Slightly tart and subtly sweet with jammy blueberry, cranberry, and cherry flavors, this medium-bodied beer clocks in at 9% ABV and is a critical off-centered ale to include in your survival bunker. – Sam Calagione, Dogfish Head Founder

Allagash James Bean has finally been bottled. The beer has been a draft-only offering in the past.
The base beer for Allagash James Bean is a Belgian-style strong ale with pure white cane sugar, that has been infused with cold pressed coffee after fermentation. The brewery chose Ethiopia Amaro Gayo beans for the brew, which boast flavors of blackberry and blueberry. The finishing touch on this big beer is the bourbon barrel aging.
Have you ever put bourbon in your coffee? If you do, drink this. If you don’t. Drink this. Coffee is bright and the bourbon a beautiful compliment to the boldness that James Bean is. Coffee, vanilla and bourbon dominate the aroma. Flavors of caramel, coffee, bourbon, and oak present themselves throughout this full-bodied beer. Think coffee, oak, caramel, and bourbon with a touch of berry. Start to finish.
Bean is further proof that coffee and bourbon work together (it’s been our breakfast of choice for years). Bourbon and coffee dominate this beer, but you can’t count out the Belgian-style golden ale base. Thats’s where the complexity really shines.
Allagash James Bean will be available 750 milliliter bottles debuted in early July at the brewery in Portland, Maine. Distribution has been slow and steady throughout the summer.

Wicked Weed Devilwood debuts today at the brewery in Asheville, North Carolina.
A Belgian-style strong ale and bourbon barrels play nice in Wicked Weed Devilwood. The time spent in the wood gives this beer a touch of coconut flavor.
The demons of Devilwood strike without warning. Many a traveler has been lost to the enticing beauty of the forest. Enveloping ferns, towering hardwoods, and enrapturing, climbing vines provide the perfect distraction for a foolhardy visitor. The demons see all from above, and harvest the pilgrims for their own devilry. Never lower your eyes in Devilwood…
Wicked Weed Devilwood is available in 12.7 ounce bottles. Limited distribution to follow by mid-April.
Shipping nationally this month is new The Bruery The Order, a Belgian-style ale.
Taking a page from monastic breweries, The Bruery The Order is a Belgian-style abbey ale, brewed with dates and coriander spicing.
Monastic breweries wrote the book on complex ales that weave notes of dark fruits, spices, caramelized character and warmth into each sip. The Order summons that tradition and adds local inspiration. Our darkening, Belgian-inspired abbey ale features dark-fruited character from dates, Belgian-style sugars and subtle spicing from coriander, which compliments the Belgian yeast esters.
The Bruery The Order releases to the brewery’s Society members this week, publicly on January 17th.

New Belgium Ann-Francoise will officially round out the brewery’s Belgian collaboration series.
This final edition of a year-long Belgian-American collaborative series with Trappist brewery Orval. Specifically, Orval’s first female brewmaster Anne-Francoise Pypaert. The result – a Belgian strong dark ale, brewed with a few spices and specialty malt.
Spruce tips and Grains of Paradise highlight the base beer, that has been dry-hopped with French Sprisselspalt hops. The finishing flourish is a two week engagement with American toasted oak spirals.
New Belgium Ann-Francoise Spiced Dark Strong Ale is available in 12 ounce bottles and draft for a limited time.
Three Taverns Feest Noel, the Decatur, Georgia based brewery’s Christmas offering, returns this week.
Brewery founder Brian Purcell always had a vision for this beer – family. Something that echoed the flavor of this (coming) time of the year, meant to be drank with family and friends. After a few dozen bottles of this big seasonal, we think Purcell and his team have done it.
This Belgian-style quadrupel uses dark roasted malts, imported Belgian dark candy sugar, and spiced accents of cardamom, allspice and cloves. Make this rich ale a part of your holiday celebration.
Three Taverns Feest Noel is available in 750 milliliter bottles, and draft.
10% ABV, 30 IBUs
Service Brewing SBC 2 debuts later this month. A celebration of the Savannah, Georgia based brewery’s second birthday.
Service is veteran owned, started by Kevin Ryan, former U.S. Army Company Commander. He and his incredible fiancé Meredith Sutton have put 11 beers into production, nearly 50 different R&D beers, and even more notable- raised $28,000 dollars for various charities.
Service Brewing SBC 2 is described as an American-Belgo-style ale, different from anything the brewery has created to date. Their house yeast, cultured from the Service apiary (Army bees!), gives the beer the Belgian-like characteristics, and fruity ester flavors. Combine that with blood orange zest and a healthy dose of Citra hops, and your birthday beer is complete.
SBC2 marks our second anniversary craft beer in honor of those who serve our country, and we humbly continue our duty of donating a portion of our revenue to support them. Thank you for helping achieve our mission as we dedicate SBC2 to all the charities out there making the world a better place.
Service Brewing SBC 2 is a 750 milliliter bottle release starting July 23rd.
