Dogfish Head releases gluten free seasonal.Posted: January 1, 2012
Dogfish Head brewery is releasing a gluten free beer in late January 2012. Replacing the barley with a mild sorghum base. While this will allow beer drinkers who suffer from Celiac disease to enjoy delicious craft brew this actually sounds like something I would want to drink. Hints of molasses and pit-fruit balanced with strawberry notes. Yum.
“It seems as if lots of folks who have gluten- tolerance issues are pining for an interesting beer,” says Dogfish founder and president Sam Calagione. “While there are a few well-made examples that mirror traditional beer styles, there aren’t any off-centered offerings.”
Enter Dogfish’s fruit-forward Tweasonale.
For our first new 12-ounce 4-packs in nearly half a decade, we replaced the classic barley foundation of beer with a mild sorghum base. The hints of molasses and pit-fruit are balanced by vibrant strawberry notes and a unique complexity that comes with the addition of a malty buckwheat honey.
We believe health-conscious beer drinkers and the millions of Americans who suffer from Celiac disease can cut back on gluten while relishing the distinction and drinkability of this very special brew.
This is part of Dogfish Head’s new “Tweasonale” line of beers that will release four different seasonal “between the seasons”.
