Beer and history collide in Dogfish Head Brewery’s (Milton, DE) Ancient Ale Series. Your glass has seen beers with a host of unique ingredients ranging from Middle Eastern herbs, to South American Chilies and everything in between. How often does your brew require a trip to Italy and guidance from an archeologist? Dogfish Head’s most recent “Ancient” release Birra Etrusca Bronze certainly did.
For those drinkers always looking ahead, brewery founder Sam Calagione is already cooking up a new Ancient Ale that you should be tasting before the end of the year. Above: the brainstorming session.
