This just in from Dogfish Head…
Johnny Cask has entered the building! We’ve retrofitted a 15 barrel tank to perfectly produce a very special cask conditioned ale (so, we have a little time to play around during winters at the Delaware coast). This beer, known as Dogfish Head 75 Minute IPA is a blend of 60 and 90 Minute IPAs with a special whole leaf cascade dry-hopping session. Post-hopping the beer gest transferred into firkins and dosed with fresh yeast and maple syrup from the ole family homestead (actually the first batch will be re-fermented with maple syrup from the farm up the road from ours since ours won’t be ready until late March. We plan to ramp up our maple house activities to get a lot more syrup for Immort Ale, 75 Minute and future beers in the coming months and years).
The debut of these 75 Minute IPA casks will take place during a live ‘Simul-cask’ event in NYC, Phily, Boston, WORCESTER! and our home base in Rehoboth Beach, DE on Thursday, March 26, 2009 at 7:50pm (EST).
After the initial launch our 75 Minute casks will be available at select accounts in Philly, NYC, Boston (“first we take Manhattan, etc”, L. Cohen) and, of course, our original brewpub in Rehoboth Beach, DE. The next year we may roll them out into additional markets.
