Posted in Beer News, Coming Soon, Dogfish Head, The Bruery

DETAILS: Bruery & Dogfish Collaboration

UPDATE: Here are the details this collaboration.  The beer will benefit Japan.  Per Benjamin Weiss, Sales & Marketing at The Bruery:

What happens when you combine two brewers with a love for experimentation on a single beer recipe?

We’ll soon find out as Sam Calagione of Dogfish Head Brewery is flying out to California this week to work with Patrick Rue and his team at The Bruery on a collaborative beer.

Both Dogfish Head and The Bruery are infamous for their use of experimental ingredients, often inspired by flavors found in exotic cuisine, and this collaboration beer will be no different.  Brewed with the intention of raising money for victims of the recent earthquake in Japan, the flavors of the small Asian, island nation famed for their umami rich cuisine will be featured in this new beer.

Made with ingredients such as nori, chili peppers, sesame seeds and kumquats and then fermented with a sake yeast, the yet to be named collaborative beer will certainly be something that furthers each brewery’s style-bending reputation and hopefully raises quite a bit of money to help out our fellow beer lovers in Japan by donating a portion of the proceeds from every bottle sale.

Availability: 750ml bottles. Limited basis.  The Bruery’s distribution areas.

Per the Bruery Reserve Society email I got over the weekend:

[quote]“If you haven’t figured it out from the subtle hints we’ve dropped recently on Facebook, we are excited to announce that we will be brewing a beer in collaboration with Dogfish Head and we plan on brewing it next week at The Bruery!”[/quote]

Reading back over the posts from The Bruery’s Facebook page they have been hinting at this for a while.  Especially in a post: “Thinking about brewing something off-centered.”   The beer is being brewed this week.  The collaborating breweries have picked a style, but haven’t divulged a name for it.  It was also mentioned that there is no name or label for the beer.
