Shelter Pale Ale

 
ABV: 
5.0
IBU: 
30
Availability: 
Limited, Draft Only

This is our original and most approachable beer. We got our start back in 1995 brewing this very beer on our teeny, tiny brewing system at Dogfish Head Brewing & Eats in Rehoboth Beach, Del.

Brewed with a premium barley and northwestern Williamette and Columbus hops, Shelter Pale Ale has a fine malt backbone and a slightly nutty flavor. It's a versatile and quaffable beer.

We named this beer Shelter Pale Ale because we think of a shelter as being a place you come home to. It just made sense for this Dogfish original.

Shelter Pale Ale is available on draft only, available in Delaware. At 5% ABV, Shelter is a great anytime beer.

Tasting Notes: 
Nutty, toasty, molasses, walnut
Food Pairing Recommendations: 
Great with burgers, pizza, earthy mushrooms, hummus and cheese
Glassware Recommendation: 
Pint
Wine Comparable: 
Beaujolais
Splice the genes of a traditional porter and an East Coast IPA and you get Recombinant, a black IPA fro the mid-Atlantic.
Culinary traditions cross brewing again in our beer brewed with fresh Herbs de Provence.
