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.

With a twin 500-gallon copper pot still and a 26-foot column still from Louisville’s Vendome Copper & Brass Works, spirits like Brown Honey Rum (made with Delaware honey), Dogfish Head Jin (the O.G. hop-infused spirit) and some off-centered new recipes will finally make it beyond Delaware’s borders.

Today I met a hardcore Dogfish evangelist named Skylar Wallace in Kansas City. Yes, the Kansas City in Missouri - where we don't yet sell Dogfish Head.

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 Beach.

Here in coastal Delaware, the summer beach season unofficially ends this week and we roll into our favorite shoulder season - Punkin Ale season!!!

There’s no doubt about it: If you’re a writer who happens to love beer, it doesn’t get much better than the Beer Bloggers Conference. And if the conference goes down in the endlessly sunny and beer-soaked city of San Diego, well, no complaints here.
