Here we come, Louisiana!

Wednesday, January 03, 2018

You’ve been asking for it, Louisiana and we’re happy to finally say … we’re heading your way!

Beginning early January, you can find our off-centered ales on taps and shelves throughout southern regions of Louisiana, including the metro areas of Lafayette, Baton Rouge and New Orleans. Folks in the northern half of Louisiana can expect to find our beers beginning in February.

“We’re excited to ship our off-centered beers to Dogfish fans in Louisiana and to begin a great and long-lasting relationship with the beer drinkers, retailers, and distributor partners in the state,” says Dogfish Head founder & CEO Sam Calagione. “We have our canning and bottling lines pumping out a ton of beer and enough brewing capacity to ensure we can keep retailers well stocked with our off-centered, well-differentiated family of beers.”

Dogfish fans in The Pelican State can expect to enjoy a full line-up of iconic, fan-favorite brews, including 90 Minute IPA, Namaste White, Indian Brown, 60 Minute IPA, SeaQuench Ale, Lupu-Luau IPA, Flesh & Blood IPA, Palo Santo Marron, Burton Baton, Midas Touch, and seasonal releases. Limited quantities of specialty beers and occasional rarities will also be available throughout the year.

Wondering what regional food favorites will pair with our off-centered ales? We’ve got you covered!

Dogfish Head Brews and Louisiana Chews!

For those that enjoy a bite with their Dogfish Head beers, the brewery suggests pairing delicious off-centered pints with classic Louisiana fare.

If you’re tired of coffee and donuts, mix things up with Beignets and Namaste White. The slight spiciness from the peppercorns and the subtle tartness of the lemongrass introduce a nice counterbalance to the sweetness of these classic donuts.

SeaQuench Ale is an excellent choice for seafood pairings and is especially tasty with Shrimp and Grits. The subtle salt and coriander present will complement the seasonings used, while the light and tart body counterbalances the richness of the cheese and bacon typically present.

90 Minute IPA is the perfect pairing for Gumbo – a rich and spicy soup. The bold hops complement the spiciness of this dish, while the slightly sweet malt backbone rounds out the flavors through the finish.

Grab our classic 60 Minute IPA to pair with Jambalaya! The assertive West Coast hops used in this IPA are a perfect balance to the spicy Andouille sausage and peppers used in this entrée, and the crisp body of this beer provides a refreshing finish.
