Dogfish Head Beer, Raison D'Etre
American beer of the year - 2000 Malt Advocate Magazine. A deep mahogany ale brewed with Belgian beet sugars, green raisins and a sense of purpose. The ingredients in our recipes come from the earth and the oven. They come from interfering and letting be. We use organic and natural ingredients wherever possible and our recipes are blissfully inefficient. We spend premium prices on the finest barley, hops & herbs. We use no extracts. For use, brewing is not a process of automation, but of imagination and passion. We wrap our hands around plastic shovels to clean our mash tuns. We wrap our hands around sticky clumps of whole leaf hops and toss them into the boil kettle. We wrap our hands around our work because we are proud to make something with our own hands. We hope you enjoy drinking Dogfish Head Craft Brewed Ales as much as we enjoy making them. 8% alc by vol.
