Dogfish Head Utopias Barrel-Aged World Wide Stout gets a release date

Dogfish Head Utopias Barrel-Aged World Wide Stout

When Dogfish Head and Boston Beer merged last year, it was nothing short of big news. After the dust settled, we were left wondering what’s next. Will it just be Sam Adams and Dogfish Head, independently but together? The sales team for Dogfish Head grew by more than 400%, and there was talk of seeing the Boston Beer logo on Dogfish Head, and vice versa. All that is just boilerplate business stuff.

This, on the other hand, is pretty freaking crazy. Dogfish Head Utopias Barrel-Aged World Wide Stout.

The combination of those two things might make you a little dizzy. Besides 120 Minute IPA, World Wide Stout is one of Dogfish Head’s strongest beers.

Utopias is a blended strong ale that comes from a plethora of barrels, hovers around 27% alcohol by volume, and runs more than $200 dollars a bottle.

These two big beers have come together in something boozy, rare and special. World Wide Stout rested for 7 months in freshly emptied Utopias barrels.

Utopias Barrel-Aged World Wide Stout, a jet-black, rich and roasty beer with balanced notes of espresso, cocoa, sherry and vanilla.

That’s one hell of a way to intercompany collaborate.

Dogfish Head Utopias Barrel-Aged Utopias World Wide Stout will be available throughout the brewery’s home state of Delaware in limited quantities on March 27th, in 12oz/4 packs

Style: Imperial Stout (Barrel-Aged)
Availability: 12oz Bottles. Limited Release, Delaware Only.
Debut: 3/27/20

Founders 4 Giants IPA ships nationally in April

Founders 4 Giants IPA

Founders 4 Giants IPA is headed to the brewery’s 50 state distribution footprint in April. 

This new 9.2% alcohol by volume India pale ale is a mashup of four different imperial IPAs. The sum of the four parts is what Founders brewmaster Jeremy Kosmicki says captures “the essence of what I think is the classic Imperial IPA.”

“Everything about it is totally in-your-face, but the flavor dynamics still manage to work together to create a well-balanced beer that is extremely fun to drink.”

Founders 4 Giants IPA will be available in 12-ounce bottles and draft nationally starting in April 2020.

Style: Imperial IPA
Availability: 12oz Bottles, Draft. Limited Release, April-June.
Debut: April 2020
