Dogfish Head Firefly Ale – Details on Special One-Off Brew
Dogfish Head flashed us with a logo for a special one-off brew called Dogfish Head Firefly Ale on their Facebook Page. The logo accompanied this caption: “At The Brewery presented by Dogfish Head, you’ll be able to sample half a dozen varieties of our off-centered ales, including the exclusive Firefly Ale.”
We reached out to Dogfish Head for a little more info on this special beer:
This beer is being brewed for a big 3-day music festival here in Delaware called Firefly. Dogfish is the official craft beer of Firefly, and the folks there have dubbed our tent “The Brewery, presented by Dogfish Head.”
Firefly is an English-style Pale Ale brewed with Marris Otter barley and English heritage hops (because the Sex Pistols invented punk rock). To add a fruity and citrusy aroma, there’s a late addition of American Calypso hops (because the Ramones invented punk rock). If you want a taste of Firefly Ale (5% ABV, 25 IBUs), make your way to the East Coast’s premier music experience, from July 20-22 in Dover, Del. Once it’s gone, it’s gone.
