Dogfish Head Craft Brewery, well-known for mining the culinary landscape for beer ingredients, is unveiling a line of foods inspired by our off-centered ales.
We've carefully selected like-minded food partners to join this journey. They include small, artisanal companies like Brooklyn Brine and larger companies like Sea Watch who share strong roots on the Delmarva Peninsula. The foods are available at select retailers and at our new food truck – dubbed Bunyan’s Lunchbox – parked at our brewery in Milton, Del.
With Hans All-Natural, we're producing a line of brats cooked with off-centered ingredients and infused with beers like Midas Touch, Chicory Stout and Raison D’Etre. The brats are the perfect culinary counterpoint to our off-centered ales.
The founder of Hans had a passion for exotic flavors, and he traveled the world to come up with unique brat recipes. Sound familiar? Here’s the lineup:
Hans, a division of Coleman Natural, is committed to natural and organic animal-raising practices. The meat used to make Dogfish brats is raised with no antibiotics, hormones or preservatives. They’re super, they’re natural, they’re supernatural.
Four-packs of our beer-centric brats sell for $6.99 here at the brewery.
Thanks to the help of Delmarva neighbors Sea Watch International – a family-owned clam harvester based in Easton, Md. – we are deepening our connection to the sea with Hard-Tack Chowder.
Based on a recipe from Herman Melville’s classic American novel “Moby Dick,” the chowder is “made of small juicy clams, scarcely bigger than hazelnuts, mixed with pounded ship biscuit, and salted pork cut up into little flakes; the whole enriched with butter, and plentifully seasoned with pepper and salt.” Ishmael would be proud.

Distribution of the Hop-Pickle, a first-of-its-kind culinary leap of taste, is expanding to cover most of the United States. The all-natural, medium-spicy Hop-Pickle is made with 60 Minute IPA, caramelized onions and Cascade hops and is packaged by hand in Brooklyn Brine’s small artisanal kitchen. Buy here.
The beer-centric brats and chowder are distributed at select retailers between New York City and Northern Virginia, and the Hop-Pickle is available nationwide.
At our Milton, Del., brewery, a menu of prepared items is available 11-6:30 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday from Bunyan’s Lunchbox. All food products also are available to-go from both the brewery and nearby brewpub, Dogfish Head Brewings & Eats in Rehoboth Beach, Del. Chowder and pickles also are available at dogfish.com.
