There are a number of changes to Dogfish Head Craft Brewery’s lineup for next year, including two new year-round releases as well as the addition of a new seasonal beer.
First, the Milton, Del.-based brewery will be adding two new year-round beers: Flesh & Blood IPA, a 7.5 percent ABV IPA brewed with blood orange juice, lemon flesh, lemon peel and orange peel as well as a combination of hops that include centennial, Warrior, and a “rare experimental hop to perfectly complement the citrus ingredients and flavor,” that was first released in June and SeaQuench Ale, a 4.9 percent ABV session sour brewed with lime peel, black limes, coriander, lime juice and sea salt that originally released in March as a collaboration between Dogfish Head and the National Aquarium.
Next, Dogfish Head is releasing a new seasonal beer for the winter months named Post-Boil IPA, and IPA that is brewed by adding a “huge and blissfully inefficient burst” of hops exclusively to the whirlpool instead of the kettle boil. The new beer joins three other seasonal releases:
- Romantic Chemistry — Summer
- Punkin Ale — Fall
- Beer To Drink Music To 2017 — Spring
- Post-Boil IPA — Winter
Finally, Dogfish Head is adding three new beers to its Occasionals lineup: Saison du BUFF, a collaboration with Stone Brewing Co. and Victory Brewing Co. that will be released in March; Lupu-luaü IPA, an IPA brewed with organic coconut, dehydrated coconut water and “an experimental hop variety” that will be released in July and Oak-aged Vanilla World Wide Stout, a variation of the brewery’s World Wide Stout conditioned on Madagascar vanilla beans that will be shipped in August.
