6/4 Pack Glass Item # 32056  $52.00  ($3 off 5 cases)

1/6 Bbls Item # 32057  $99.00  (only 5 avail.)

Things are suddenly getting real comfy around these parts with our latest off-centered creation – Suddenly Comfy.

Brewed with fresh apple cider, Saigon cinnamon and Madagascar vanilla beans, this Imperial Cream Ale is made with all the fixings of a great apple pie … just like grandma used to make.

Inhale and you’ll be greeted with aromas of pie crust and brûléed sugar. Sip and you’ll find notes of fruity sweetness. Savor and you’ll venture on a fragrant flashback that has you longing for the past.

Inspired by the classically decadent dessert, Suddenly Comfy is a result of our Beer Exploration Journal – a program designed to give our fans a peek into the world of R&DFH, while sampling, evaluating and rating new beers on tap exclusively at our Milton Tasting Room & Kitchen and Rehoboth brewpub.

After reading through hundreds of comments, we got the sense that we needed to bottle this beer. Some of our favorites included…

- “It’s like apple pie in a glass!”

- “It’s the ultimate dessert beer!”

- “Smells just like pie … holy delicious!”

So, bottle it we did. Be sure to look for this freshly baked … er, brewed apple pie in a glass near you! (6.3%)  


Dogfish Head Limited Release:  75 Minute IPA!

4/6 Packs Item # 31996  $46.50  ($3 off 5 cases)

It’s been a minute … but 75 Minute IPA is back! What began as a cask-conditioned ale at our Rehoboth brewpub back in 2011, quickly grew to become a cult-favorite amongst craft enthusiasts. From the groucho glasses that adorned the label to it’s slightly dry and lingering bitterness, 75 Minute was (and is) beloved by many.

Now in our latest iteration, this classic IPA is again brewed with maple syrup from Sam’s family farm in Massachusetts, while being continually hopped throughout the boil, and then dry-hopped with a slew of cascade hops. The result is a malty and earthy brew with citrusy-pine aromas, balanced by subtle maple notes.

You’ll notice those groucho glasses are looking a bit more comical thanks to the imagination of this year’s Off-Centered Art Series artist … Michael Hacker!  (7.5%)

Limited Release from Switchback:  SLOW-FERMENTED BROWN ALE!

4/6 Packs Item # 54408  $31.00

UNFILTERED AND 100% NATURALLY CARBONATED

Slow-Fermented Brown Ale is a beautiful chestnut brown colored beer with a rich roast and caramel malt flavor delicately balanced by hop undertones and a subtle sweetness in the finish. Fermenting at cool temperatures with ale yeast causes a stress-reaction leading to a clean flavor coupled with a rich and full mouthfeel.   As a test, we fermented our Slow-Fermented Brown Ale recipe normally and also at a lower temperature just above the yeast’s tolerance. The results were remarkable. A testament to the importance of yeast to a beer’s flavor, the slow-fermented version has a gentle creaminess that balances perfectly with the soft caramel overtones of the brown ale recipe, ending in a crazy smooth finish. It is a difficult and touchy beer to make, but we are hooked on the results!  (5.6%)     UPC:  8 53205 00409 6

Brewed with barley, wheat and oats, then fermented with cacao, coffee, vanilla beans and lactose sugar, this heroic beer will take the edge off of whatever plot twist life throws at you.  (9.5%)  UPC:  8 59518 00241 5

Long Trail Limited Release:  Over the Handlebars!

6/4 Pack 16 oz Cans Item # 47401  $58.50

Over The Handlebars, our super limited Double IPA, features classic heavy hop aromas of citrus, pine, fresh cut grass and passionfruit. The fresh lupulin powder provides tons of citrus and tangerine flavors.

Or, as Ian puts it: “Kind of like Tang for adults." 

So, besides the name – which pays homage to our thirst for two-wheel adventure – what sets this beer apart from our other hop-filled offerings?

Over the Handlebars is the first beer we’ve created with lupulin powder, a brand new, concentrated hop product from Yakima-based hop growers, YCH Hops. Before we get too far, let’s back up and explain what exactly lupulin is… Lupulin refers to the yellowish powder found on the hairs beneath the flowers of female hop plants.

In short, lupulin is the active ingredient of hops, which contains the resins and oils that deliver the flavors and aromas that people are looking for in their modern IPAs. With lupulin powder, the resins and oils are concentrated and accentuated, allowing the flavor to shine bright. Our brew crew scored some Simcoe and Cascade powder, which they used in the dry-hopping to deliver super clean tropical and citrus flavors that come across more clearly – and less bitter – than pellets or whole-leaf hops. 

Only a handful of brewers are using lupulin powder, so we’re uber excited about Over the Handlebars. Make sure to throw an extra high five at the production and retail teams who have been hand-stickering these face smashing cans.  (8%)

ITHACA, NY – Ithaca Beer Company is extremely pleased to announce its first wholesale release of a Flower Power variant: Flower Power with Galaxy Hops. Ithaca Beer has brewed a number of small-batch Flower Power variants in its Ithaca Taproom and is now sharing these special batches with the rest of the world. These variants have included numerous dry hopped cask conditioned releases as well as additions like blood orange, grapefruit and Ithaca Taproom Farm grown habanero peppers.

Ithaca Beer is brewing this special limited variation of its celebrated flagship Flower Power IPA with an addition of Australian Galaxy hops to introduce an intense passion fruit and citrus character. Already well known for its punchy pineapple, citrus, floral flavor and aromas, as well as clover honey sweetness, this variation of Flower Power is complimented and accentuated by the Galaxy hop’s unique qualities. Galaxy hops are limited in availability here in the United States as they are grown in the Australian state of Tasmania and are sought to impart passion fruit, citrus zest, peach and stone fruit flavors.

Ithaca Beer will release several more limited small batch Flower Power variants going into 2020. A few releases on the drawing board include Flower Power with Mosaic Hops, Flower Power with Guava and Flower Power with Mango. The limited single Flower Power variants will be available in 16 oz. 4-pack cans

Boulevard 30th Anniversary Ale!

12/750 ml Item #  10915  $169.00 (only 4 avail.)

Inspired by John’s desire to “do something different,” our brewers created this elegant, complex blend of barrel-aged beers to celebrate our 30th anniversary. Thank you to our fans for being a part of it all – cheers to 30 years! Look for this celebratory beer to start hitting shelves and tap handles throughout the country in September.

Ryan McNeive, lead brewer of our barrel-aging program, tells us more about the eight great beers that make up this blend.

WHAT’S THE STORY BEHIND THIS BEER?

I love dessert wine, primarily port and was inspired to create a blend of complex, barrel-aged Belgian-style ales to celebrate this momentous occasion. Just like a fine port, I’d highly recommend aging a bottle or two of this beer in proper cellar temperatures as, over time, the beer will continue to evolve, maximizing  barrel flavors and aromas.

ANY NEW BEERS IN THE FINAL BLEND?

Of course!  As we brew beers specifically for barrel-aging, there is always something new going into casks.  In this blend, one of the stouts is a completely new base beer, a combination of both different malts and brewing process.  These changes created a higher ABV, higher plato, and a sweeter, thicker finish.  This recipe was designed to complement a few different barrels, delivering a robust hoppy and chocolate flavor with an intense aroma. In addition to this new stout, the Belgian-style ale we used in a variety of barrels is a near clone of our favorite Trappist Belgian ale.

WHAT BEERS ARE BLENDED TO CREATE THIS BARREL-AGED 30TH ANNIVERSARY ALE AND HOW MUCH OF EACH IS USED?*

This was a complex beer to blend, but we love where it ended.

Imperial Stout in rye whiskey finished port casks – 34%

Belgian Dark Strong Ale in ruby and tawny port casks – 26%

Double Mashed Imperial Stout in bourbon barrels – 16%

Belgian Dark Strong Ale in California sherry casks – 9%

Imperial Stout in bourbon barrels – 5%

Imperial Stout in Spanish sherry puncheons – 5%

Imperial Stout aged in bourbon barrels followed by ruby/tawny port casks – 3%

Belgian Dark Strong Ale in bourbon barrels – 2%

WHAT WOULD YOU PAIR THIS BEER WITH?

Chocolate covered cherries, rich cheeses, sweet milk chocolates

Malt – Caramel, toffee, chocolate, espresso

Boulevard Limited Release:  Love Child # 10!

12/750ml Item # 10912  $169.00

(only 5 avail)

The tenth bottling in our Love Child series of blended sour ales is composed primarily of a blend of Belgian-style golden ales aged in wine casks, golden ales with cherries and apricots, a golden ale fermented in a foeder and Flanders-style red ales and oud bruins. The very first release of a Love Child blend was 100% soured Bourbon Barrel Quad, but each subsequent batch has been based on golden and red ales. For that reason, the strength has been steadily declining from the 12.5 ABV of Love Child No. 1 to more recent releases in the 7.5-9.5% range.

Following primary fermentation in stainless steel tanks with our house Belgian yeast strain, the component batches of beer were aged in a variety of previously used barrels with lactobacillus and brettanomyces. Following aging, samples were pulled from like lots and blended during a tasting session attended by brewers and members of our quality assurance team. With each release of a Love Child blend, it’s not our intention to reproduce the character of the previous year’s blend, but rather to offer a blend of the very best sour beers we have on hand.

The blend for Love Child No. 10 breaks down as follows:
Belgian-style golden ale aged in previously used wine barrels – 35%
Belgian-style golden ale aged in previously used wine barrels with cherries – 14%
Belgian-style golden ale aged in previously used wine barrels with apricots – 8%
Belgian-style golden ale aged in our original oak foeder – 12%
Flanders-style red ale aged in previously used wine barrels – 6%
Oud bruin aged in Sangiovese puncheons – 12%
Dark sour ale aged in Sangiovese puncheons – 13%
