One of the most pioneering IPAs goes metal!
Straight Outta Delaware!
Yep, the booming craft beer trend of going metal has found its way to one of the most significant, seminal and consistent breweries in U.S. history—Dogfish Head. My homey and President Sam Calagione along with his “off-centered” DH posse have always showed love to music, artists, and experimental recipes to keep the craft beer scene fresh. Now we can get their top seller in a can, the 60 Minute IPA (6%), starting November 7th throughout the Mid-Atlantic, then they will slowly make their way to their other 30 or so states by the dawn of 2017.
Sam said in the brewery's official release, “Early on in the craft brewing renascence I was underwhelmed with the canning technology for craft beer. But times have changed, equipment has evolved, and we’ve designed a beautiful, state-of-the-art Krones can line that delivers the quality and consistency our consumers have come to expect from our beer.” He added, “We’ve been able to grow from the smallest brewery to one of the top 20 craft breweries in the country, and we’ve done it in part by investing in world-class people and world-class equipment.” Boom!
I love cans because they can get into more venues (especially beaches), less breakage, easier to recycle, and in my opinion, keep IPAs fresher. Do a taste test and see for yourself! Anyway, look for these babies soon!
