Dogfish Head Brings Back Bitches Brew Wood-Aged on Palo and Oak

Kicking off 2018 with four fantastic fan-favorite beer releases in brand new packaging, Dogfish Head Craft Brewery is excited to reacquaint its fans with a quartet of diverse, flavorful beers to get the New Year started off right. Beginning mid-January be on the lookout for Wood-Aged Bitches Brew, Romantic Chemistry, Lupu-Luau IPA and Namaste White on taps and shelves.

Continually experimenting with barrel-aged beers and celebrating all things musically inspired, Dogfish is bringing back the bold, honey-tinged, imperial stout, Wood-Aged Bitches Brew, with a new, wood-centric spin. The 2018 version is aged and blended in giant oak and Palo Santo wood tanks where it develops vanilla, chocolatey-licorice wood aromas with a sweet, roasty, coffee flavor finish. Brewed as an homage to Miles Davis’ 1970 landmark jazz-rock record, Bitches Brew is a fusion of three threads of imperial stout aged on oak and one thread of Tej, a native African honey beer, aged on Palo Santo. “We’ve been waiting for the right moment to reintroduce Bitches Brew and thought wood-aging it in our massive 10,000 gallon oak and Palo tanks would be the perfect innovative complement to a beer that was inspired by a culturally transformative record born out of a union of rock and roll and jazz – continuing the cycle of innovation through inspiration,” said Sam Calagione, founder and CEO of Dogfish Head Craft Brewery. Wood-Aged Bitches Brew clocks in at 9% ABV and is now available year-round in 6-pack/12oz bottles.

Coming at ya for the first time in cans, Dogfish is releasing two culinary ingredient enhanced beers in beautiful, bold packaging – Lupu-Luau IPA and Namaste White. Lupu-Luau is a coconut India Pale Ale brewed with a tropical trifecta of toasted coconut, coconut water and an experimental hop which adds coconut aromas. This beer gets its natural haze from Pils malt, flaked barley and rolled oats. At 7.3% ABV, Lupu-Luau IPA is available year-round in 6-pack/12oz cans. Namaste White is a Belgian-style witbier brewed with dried orange flesh and peel, fresh-cut lemongrass, a bit of coriander, peppercorns and a generous dose of good karma. The name means the spirit in me acknowledges the spirit in you – a shout-out to beer enthusiasts who have turned their friends on to Dogfish and other fine indie craft beers over the years. At 4.8% ABV, Namaste is a refreshing, sessionable white ale and is available year-round in 12-pack/12oz cans.

A longtime champion of all things collaborative and artful, Dogfish Head is excited to celebrate its 2018 Off-Centered Art Series with the release of Romantic Chemistry. This beer is a serious India Pale Ale brewed with an intermingling of mango, apricots, ginger and a beautiful essential oil called myrcene. This harmonious combination results in a citrusy explosion making it exponentially spectacular and is the reason for its namesake as it’s an ode to the love shared between its ingredients. The brewery partnered with highly acclaimed artist, Marq Spusta, to create artwork for Romantic Chemistry, bringing its unique story to life through storyful visuals. The imaginative, playful packaging design features ménage à trois, lovefest of sorts between hops, mangos and apricots. Lovingly dry-hopped with three varieties of hops and clocking in at 7.2% ABV, Romantic Chemistry is available in 6-pack/12oz bottles.
