Dogfish Head Craft Brewery (Milton, DE) will release another round of Positive Contact next year. The recent release is a cider/beer hybrid, loosly based on a witbier. This fusion is brewed with organic Fuji apple cider, fresh organic cilantro, and dried cayenne pepper.
Bottles were only released in a box set of 6/750mls, recipe pairings and a Dan The Automator record. Next year more bottles (outside of the box set?) and draft will appear- tentatively in March, 2013.
The above are bottles of Positive Contact on the line at Dogfish Head in Milton, Delaware. The beer infusion is a collaboration between Deltron 3030â€²s Dan the Automator and Dogfish Head. Deltron 3030 is a hip-hop collaboration between Dan and Del the Funkee Homosapien.
Positive Contact is a 9% ABV hybrid of beer and cider brewed with wood-pressed Fuji apples, roasted farro, a handful of cayenne peppers and fresh cilantro. Described as a “sweet-and-sour Belgian-ish brew”, light straw color with fruity, cider-like notes. Cayenne and alcohol give it a warming finish.
Positive Contact’s expected street date is 6/18/12
A positive combination of Fuji cider, slow-roasted farro, a bit of cayenne, and fresh cilantro.
