Wet Hop American Summer

A wild ale with fresh Citra hops, still wet from the fields

The second beer out of our ‘Wooden … it be nice!’ wild beer program, Wet Hop American Summer is a wild ale dry-hopped with wet Citra hops! Available beginning Saturday, Nov. 10 at our Milton Tasting Room & Kitchen, we're releasing 1,500 (375ml) bottles at 11 a.m. Sharp!

To create Wet Hop American Summer, we started with a rustic Farmhouse base ale. After it spent more than a year in Chardonnay barrels, it was racked onto a hand-picked selection of unprocessed, freshly-harvested, whole leaf Citra hops that were still wet from the field.

Dry, highly-carbonated and chock full of intensely earthy flavors, fragrances and aromas of Brett funk, Wet Hop American Summer clocks in at 7.2% ABV. Hand-bottled – cork and cage style – and hand-painted with a special stripe signifying its uniquely-crafted touch.

Looking to find Dogfish brews in your neck of the woods? We currently sell in over 40 U.S. states plus Washington D.C., although we hope to add more someday! Select your brew of choice, enter your zip code and we will tell you where it has been delivered in the past 60 days. But wait! Before you hop in your ride and drive to pick up that elusive Dogfish you see on the screen, please, please call ahead to confirm availability. Just because a beer has been delivered doesn’t mean it is still on the shelves or that the keg has been tapped.
