Audible Ale has somewhat of a dual meaning for us here at Dogfish. As everyone knows we are fond of both music and beer, and both have become intertwined as a source of inspiration and stimulus.
This ale speaks loudly with its character. But first and foremost this ale speaks to the need of sometimes having to change things up last minute, and pulling a last-second audible on brew day.
Instead of making the beer originally planned that day, it was decided last second to make an American Brown Ale with Syrah grape juice and cranberries. A strong contrast between sweet and sour shapes the flavor of this “red velvety” ale. Tart fruit, nuts, and milk chocolate dominate the profile, coupled with faint notes of earthy spicy American hop varieties.
