Our fruit beer for hopheads!

Aprihop is an American IPA brewed with Pilsner and Crystal malts. It's massively hopped -- in the continuous fashion, of course! -- and the flavor is complemented by the addition of apricots.

After fermentation, the beer is dry hopped with irresponsible amounts of Amarillo hops. The beer has a hoppy aroma, with the apricots playing a supporting role.

The flavor is rich with late hop notes, and its bitterness is tempered by just the right amount of malt sweetness and fruity undertones from the apricots.

This is one of our most popular seasonal beers and we've been brewing it each spring for quite a while now. We release the beer each March, and you should find it on the shelves through May.

We currently send Aprihop (in season) to our wholesale partners in the following states:

AZ, CA, CO, CT, DC, DE, FL, GA, IL, KY, MA, MD, ME, MI, NC, NH, NJ, NV, NY, OH, OR, PA, SC, TX, 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!

We’re going back, waaaaaaay back with our latest dinner series.  To where exactly?  Well,
One of the many things that drew me to Dogfish as a beer fan was the vision of Sam standing in front of a SABCO Brew Magic in 1995 brewing the entire volume of beer for the brewpub in Rehoboth Beac
