Hard Tack Chowder

share the love


Saltwater is in Dogfish's DNA. Our fondness for the sea comes from Maine (we're named after a small peninsula off Southport Island, after all) and our coastal Delaware home, and thanks to the help of our Delmarva neighbors Sea Watch International -- a family-owned clam harvester -- we've deepened our connection to the sea with Dogfish Head Hard-Tack Chowder.

Based on a recipe from Herman Melville’s classic American novel "Moby Dick," it's "made of small juicy clams, scarcely bigger than hazelnuts, mixed with pounded ship biscuit, and salted pork cut up into little flakes; the whole enriched with butter, and plentifully seasoned with pepper and salt,” and infused with 60 Minute IPA.  It's brought to life with 8 ounces of half-and-half and 3 ounces of your favorite brown ale. Palo Santo Marron and Indian Brown come to mind.  

Ishmael would be proud.

Beer pairings: Indian Brown Ale, 90 Minute IPA
