Alternate Takes #2

Our classic Raison D’Etre aged with Syrah grape must & brett

In the analog age of music, artists recorded take after take, experimenting with new sounds until a great record emerged. Our Alternate Takes series offers a peek into our iterative and creative R&D process, where each batch is celebrated as its own off-centered hit.

Alternate Takes #2 began with Raison D’Etre being end-fermented in a tank with a Belgian Abbey yeast. Then we transferred it to single-use red wine barrels, where we added Syrah grape must and brettanomyces. The result is a wild sour ale with a deep, dark and complex flavor.

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.
