We're music junkies here at Dogfish Head, and one of our favorite times of year is when the Firefly Music Festival rolls through our neck of the woods. And guess who just happens to be the official craft beer of Firefly?

To celebrate this growing East Coast extravaganza, we've brewed up Firefly Ale, a sessionable pale ale that we like to think is a highlight for more than a few festival-goers.

Firefly is an English-style pale ale brewed with Marris Otter barley and English heritage hops (because the Sex Pistols invented punk rock). To add a fruity and citrusy aroma, there’s a late addition of American Calypso hops (because the Ramones invented punk rock).

This very approachable balance of hops and grain can be found at our pop-up pub at Firefly and on the road at some of our favorite beer-and-music venues. Don't miss it!
