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.

Back in 1994, when Sam Calagione was working on a business plan for a nontraditional brewery, one of the homebrew recipes he tested was a breakfast-themed stout. A few months later, Chicory Stout – brewed with organic Mexican coffee, licorice root and chicory – helped launch Dogfish on our off-centered path. Now, 20 years later, the itch for a breakfast beer is there again, and we’re going big.

Sure, everybody loves sun, sand and surf, but there’s more to coastal Delaware than summer fun. In fact, November is chock-full of fun stuff, and with off-season rates (including 3 nights for the price of 2 on weekdays!), the Dogfish Inn is the perfect place to stay while you experience it all.

There’s been some confusion - I am not stepping down or aside.  I have never been more engaged or put in more hours at Dogfish Head than I am today, and I have never been happier.

Last December, after a two-year hiatus, we started dipping our Dogfish toes back in Indiana. Now we’re doing a full-on cannonball and getting our off-centered ales to the rest of the state.
