Dogfish Head’s Delaware Native Ale Returns, With A Spirit In Tow

Dogfish Head Brewery has just brewed a second iteration of Delaware Native Ale aka DNA. The beer uses all ingredients native to the First State, including a yeast that was isolated from a local peach orchard.

Last year’s batch wasn’t able to claim 100% Delaware origin. The barley used was from out of state. This year, Sam and crew were able to locally source the barley for DNA 2012. The beer is a mead with 720 lbs of wildflower honey, and over 300 lbs of Delaware blueberries. As an added bonus, the mead will be used as a wash to create a Delaware Native Distilled Spirit. Perhaps the first spirit created completely in Delaware?
