Ancient Ales Dinner

Oct 01
Pittsburgh, PA

We’re going back, waaaaaaay back with our latest dinner series.  To where exactly?  Well, Rome, Finland, Honduras, China—heck, just jump in our time machine and come along for the ride!

Since 1999, Dogfish Head has worked closely with molecular archaeologist Dr. Patrick McGovern to bring ancient brewing history back to life. The resulting Ancient Ales transport modern beer connoisseurs to a time when brewers were unencumbered by purity laws, style rules and bottom lines. 

Juniper berries, chai, cocoa nibs, ancho chilies, muscat grapes, saffron and honey are just some of the unique ingredients that flavor these Ancient Ales and make them perfect for food pairings.

Through August and September, we’re stepping back in time with our Ancient Ales dinner series—won’t you (re)make history with us?

We're still crating the menu, but we do know what we're pouring...
