My Antonia

 
ABV: 
7.5
Availability: 
Limited
Original Release Date: 
10/2008

My Antonia (named after the Willa Cather read), is a continually-hopped imperial pilsner. This lager for ale lovers is citrusy, sweet and refined.

My Antonia started out as a collaboration beer when Sam brewed it at Birra del Borgo (hope you can read Italian) outside Rome, Italy, with owner/brewer Leonardo DiVencenzo in October 2008. In 2010, we began brewing My Antonia here in Delaware for U.S. distribution.

As an aside, in June 2009, Leonardo came over to Delaware and brewed our original batch of Namaste with us at our Rehoboth Beach brewpub. And Leo is also one of the brewers involved in the Eataly project in New York City. What goes around, comes around.

Anyhoo... check out our Quick Sip Clip of Sam chatting about My Antonia with his Italian-American grandmother Jessie Calagione (they sometimes veer a bit off topic, but we think it's a great video and love her 'cash customers' story). Cheers!

We currently send My Antonia (when available) to our wholesale partners in the following states:

AZ, CO, CT, DC, DE, FL, GA, IL, KY, MA, MD, ME, MI, NC, NJ, NV, NY, OH, OR, PA, SC, VA, VT, WA

To find where our wholesalers have delivered this beer in the past 60 days, check out the Fish Finder (you can search by beer and by zip). As a reminder, it is always best to call and confirm a retailer still has the beer before making any treks!

Hello all.  Thanks for all the interest and comments on Dogfish Head.  It would be wonderful if media folks would check in with the companies they write about before they write about them
If there’s one thing we know about our Mug Club members here at the pub, it’s that they love their hops.  So for the 2014 Mug Club party we brewed a special batch of beer, an ode to the Hop Mo
