Firefly Ale '18

Firefly Ale '18





Drum roll, please! Now in our seventh year as the official craft brewery of Firefly Music Festival, we took our beloved Firefly Ale - an English-style pale ale - and remixed it with a little help from a few thousand of our closest friends!

During the week of March 12, 2018, both Dogfish and Firefly took to our social media channels to ask fans to take part in creating a unique spin on the original Firefly Ale. With a pale ale as the base, folks had the chance to choose between grapefruit, yuzu or guava as the new featured ingredient for the 2018 remix of Firefly Ale.

The results? The freshly twisted Firefly Ale mashup is brewed with guava puree and coconut flower nectar, and dry-hopped with Citra, Mosaic and Galaxy hops. Clocking in at 5% ABV, this complex summer sipper is full of tropical fruit notes with a subtle sweetness. The perfect sessionable pale ale for those days and nights in The Woodlands!

Mixed Media

Mixed Media





The closest an ale can legally be to wine! With 51% of the fermentable sugars coming from grain and 49% coming from grapes, Mixed Media is a complex saison-esque ale brewed with a distinct Belgian yeast strain. Using a late-harvest Viognier grape must from our friends at Alexandria Nicole Cellars in Washington, you'll find notes of white grape and melon in the aroma, and greeted with a spicy white wine body in every sip.

If you were (or still are) a fan of our Noble Rot or Oak-aged Noble Rot, you'll be delighted with the addition of Mixed Media to our lineup of beer-wine hybrids.

“We’ve been experimenting with grape juice and must in the brewing process with beers like Midas Touch, Red & White, Noble Rot and Sixty One, since we first opened 23 years ago as the smallest American craft brewery,” says Dogfish Head founder & CEO Sam Calagione. “By blending the two seemingly opposite worlds of beer and wine together we’ve discovered that they collide quite nicely, and the combination of the two adds an additional thread of flavor and a layer of complexity to the mix."

As our newest spin in the beer-wine world, Mixed Media appeals to both the Pinot Gris and beer drinker alike with a crisp, dry and tart ale that will leave you 'puckering' for more.

Wood-Aged Bitches Brew

Wood-Aged Bitches Brew





The Bitches is back, only this time we aged it our oak and Palo tanks! An off-centered twist on our classic Bitches Brew, Wood-Aged Bitches Brew is still the same bold, dark, Imperial Stout you know and love!

Originally brewed in honor of the 40th anniversary of the release of Miles Davis’ 1970 landmark Jazz fusion record Bitches Brew, our ‘remix’ is a gustatory tribute to that analog masterpiece.

"A mix of traditional African mead and English stout, this slow burning sipper grooves with chocolate and charcoal." - The Wall Street Journal

Much like Jazz fusion, which blends different musical styles, our Wood-Aged Bitches Brew is a fusion of three threads of Imperial stout aged on oak and one thread of Tej - a native African honey beer - aged on Palo.

The result is a roasty brew chock full of aromas of vanilla, licorice and chocolate, while you’ll find notes of sweet roast coffee with every sip. It’s slightly dry in the mouthfeel with a mild bitterness that make it the perfect sipper.

Dogfish Head founder & CEO Sam Calagione says Wood-Aged Bitches Brew is best when “sipped cool, not cold, from a snifter or red wine glass while listening to the Bitches Brew album.” We like the sound of that.
