Small, independent craft brewers have been fermenting with corn for millenia. In Peru, small communities produce Chicha from masticated maize, naturally fermented in large clay pots and often flavored with fruit and spices. Here at Dogfish, we've produced a chicha hybrid from masticated purple Peruvian Corn, Malted Corn and Malted Barley. The wort is BOILED, chilled and flavored with strawberries to offer a sweet and tart drink perfumed with summer. The beer is fermented with a unique blend of yeast strains which yields a dry beer with fruity and spicy aromas. Refreshing and playful, Chicha is a bold experience of delicate flavors and sensations.
