Dogfish News

The newest small-batch beer from Dogfish Head, released Sunday to celebrate the fall equinox, is out of this world.

Celest-jewel-ale is made with lunar meteorites that have been crushed into dust, then steeped like tea in a rich, malty Oktoberfest. These certified moon jewels are made up primarily of minerals and salts, helping the yeast-induced fermentation process and lending this traditional German style a subtle but complex earthiness. (Or is it mooniness?)

Our friends up the road at ILC Dover, a company that creates space suits for NASA, helped us get this unique and incredibly rare ingredient. We also used German malts and hops, and fermented this beer with our house Doggie yeast, giving Celest-jewel-ale notes of doughy malt, toasted bread, subtle caramel and a light herbal bitterness.


Today we’re at Burley Oak Brewing Company brewing 'Pants are Cumbersome', a sour stout brewed with local rye, wheat, beach plums and a house-strain of lacto.


We’re kicking off 2016 with the opening of Chesapeake & Maine, a new seafood restaurant inspired by founder and president Sam Calagione’s summers spent in Dogfish Head, Maine and Dogfish’s connection to the Chesapeake region!
