THE BEER NUT: In breathless anticipation of 75 Minute IPA from Dogfish
When bar owner Alec Lopez tapped the firkin, the crowd cheered, and he and other bartenders rushed to fill the special Dogfish Head pint glasses and hand them out to the crowd.
Dogfish sent 75 pint glasses to each bar that participated in the “simulcask,” and the first 75 people to get a pint of 75 Minute IPA got to keep the glass. I snagged one. I was about the 30th person to be served. Now I have a new Dogfish Head pint glass to add to my small collection at home, so now I have two different pint glasses and a snifter.
The first firkin was kicked, or tapped out, within 18 minutes. The second lasted a little longer the last pint was drawn around 10 p.m.
I was lucky enough to get two pints.
