Dogfish Head Craft Brewery (Milton, DE) has a long standing history with beer and wine. You’ll notice that most recently in Noble Rot, a beer brewed with grape must. Just like Noble Rot, Sixty-One is born out of Dogfish Head founder Sam Calagione’s experimental nature. Years ago, Sam started pouring a little red wine in his glass of 6o Minute IPA. Truly a marriage of beer and wine.
Sixty-One takes the brewery’s year round 60 Minute IPA and adds Syrah grape must from California. Look for Sixty-One this March, then 4 times a year.Style: IPA (w/ Grape Must)
Availability: 12oz bottle/ 4 packs, Draft

Interesting Fact: The name Sixty-One is a reminder that this beer is Dogfish Head’s best-selling 60 Minute IPA plus one new ingredient. The label, painted by Sam, isn’t your typical watercolor. Calagione mixed the green pigment with beer and the red pigment with wine. The browns on the label are done with melted chocolate.
