Dogfish Head & Sierra Nevada Create Rhizing Bines

Built on the friendship they built with Life & Limb, Dogfish Head & Sierra Nevada are back at it again with Rhizing Bines. The beer is described at an East meets West IPA, incorporating the way each of the breweries hop their beer.

On the hot side, Rhizing Bines will go through Dogfish’s signature continual-hopping process with floral and citrusy Bravo hops. On the cold side, it will be dry-hopped with an experimental varietal so new it doesn’t yet have a name, just a number: Hop 644. A component of Sierra Nevada’s aroma-boosting Torpedo system will make a pit-stop in Delaware for dry-hopping duty before it heads to Sierra’s new North Carolina brewery.

In honor of Sierra Nevada headed to Ashville, Dogfish Head added Carolina heirloom red winter wheat grown at Anson Mills. Rhizing Bines is brewed at Dogfish Head in Milton, DE.

Dogfish Head/ Sierra Nevada Life & Limb 2

Life & Limb 2

It’s no secret that Dogfish Head & Sierra Nevada are brewing up another batch of Life & Limb in 2011.  The collaboration between the 2 breweries was created in May, 2009 and released in November of that year.  About L&L:

Life & Limb is a collaborative effort, the brainchild of Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. and Dogfish Head Craft Brewery. Life & Limb is a 10% ABV strong, dark beer that defies style characteristics- brewed with pure maple syrup from the Calagione family farm in Massachusetts and estate barley grown on the Grossman “farm” at the brewery in Chico, CA. The beer is alive with yeast-a blend of both breweries’ house strains-bottle conditioned for added complexity and shelf life, and naturally carbonated with birch syrup fresh from Alaska.

Life & Limb is dedicated to the family of beer drinkers and enthusiasts worldwide who continue to support the little guys, iconoclasts, entrepreneurs, and pioneers who risk life and limb to shape the vibrant craft-brewing community.

Style: American Strong Ale

Hops: Bravo (Bittering), Perle & Sterling (Finishing)
Malts: 2 Row Pale, Chocolate, Carafa
Yeast: Blend of yeasts from both breweries
Maple & Birch syrups

The 2011 edition might see a little different bottle size – 750ml.  (Last release was 24oz.) L&L 2 will be distributed through Sierra Nevada’s channels.

Arrival: Late Fall, 2011
