Dogfish Head Releases Oak-Aged Vanilla World Wide Stout

imageFrom Dogfish Head:

Milton, Del., July 21, 2017 - Dark, rich, roasty and complex, Oak-Aged Vanilla World Wide Stout from Dogfish Head Craft Brewery is now shipping to taps and shelves.  A beautiful beer to evolve with aging, this stout is brewed with a ridiculous amount of barley and aged in real 10,000 gallon oak tanks with heaps of vanilla beans.  Brewed beyond the limits of the average beer, Oak-Aged Vanilla World Wide Stout evolves from a complex wort into a big, bad blackened stout, brewed to last for decades, resulting in a wonderfully authentic tapestry of roasted malty, toasted vanilla flavors with subtle coffee notes.  

“When we first began brewing World Wide Stout at our brewpub back in the winter of 1999, the first batch sold out in less than a week -  and nearly 18 years later the response has continued to be amazing,” said Sam Calagione, founder and CEO of Dogfish Head Craft Brewery. “At Dogfish, our raison d'être is to expand the boundaries of the typical beer experience by creating innovative beers made from fresh ingredients, so we decided to take a new spin on our popular stout by adding tons of whole Madagascar vanilla beans to the recipe.  The addition of the beans enhances the coffee and chocolatey notes in the beer which we think our fans will enjoy.” 

This opaque complex ale clocks in at 16% ABV and has a depth more in line with a fine port.  It actually goes great with (or as) dessert.  A big old slice of decadent cheesecake is the perfect pair for this velvety stout.  “Like Fort and 120 Minute IPA, Oak-Aged Vanilla World Wide Stout only gets better in its golden years, said Calagione. “With aging, you’ll find the heat of the booze fades into the background and the port notes and vanilla roastiness takes over,” said Calagione.  “Grab a few bottles, enjoy one now and lay the others down for a few years.”  To find and enjoy Oak-Aged Vanilla World Wide Stout and other off-centered Dogfish Head brews in your area, visit www.dogfish.com/brewery/fishfinder.

Upslope Adding Lee Hill Series Vol 13 Tequila Barrel Quad Cans

imageFrom Upslope:

Our Lee Hill Series of special release brews showcases the best of our big barrel aged beers. Now, we’re back for volume 13! Next week, we’ll be releasing our new Tequila Barrel Aged Belgian Quad! This beer will be available on tap and in cans on Thursday, July 27th, with the release party going from 5-9pm at our Lee Hill tap room. Be one of the first to try our newest barrel aged beer and grab some cans to add to your cellar!


Our newest Belgian Quad is based on the recipe of a former Lee Hill series beer, but this time we tweaked the recipe a bit and prepared it to go into our Dulce Vida Anejo Tequila barrels for six months. Over those months, the complex flavors of this big, Belgian ale mingled with the spirit of these barrels to produce notes of caramelized bananas, mulled clove, and floral tequila accents. These flavors are rounded off by a rich, spicy oak character and a warming finish that characterizes the classic Belgian Quad style.

This beer weighs in at a smooth 11.2% ABV and 42 IBUs.


Our Lee Hill Series of beers, named after our original location that still houses our entire barrel aging program, is a showcase of our commitment to experimentation and innovation in complex and bold beers. These beers are crafted in small batches, aged for varying lengths, and available for a limited time so that we can keep the ball rolling on the next batch of barrel aged beer for our most loyal fans.

Served up quarterly, these beers are served on draft and sold in 19.2 ounce cans that are sure to be great additions to your cellar!


The Tequila Barrel Aged Belgian Quad will be released on this coming Thursday, July 27th at our North Boulder tap room! We’ll be celebrating from 5-9pm with staff and brewers! The quad will be on tap and available in 19.2 ounce can for you take home at the special price of $10.

Against the Grain Europe is our latest brand made in and for European countries. It’s an extension of who we are in Louisville, but with production in Germany at Brauhaus Binkert. Against the Grain Europe exemplifies our American styles and quality standards. The first brews currently being made are an American IPA, Neoanderthal, and an American Pale Ale, Plus One. 

In lieu of the new brand we’d like to also introduce you to our newest Against the Grain character, Touri. She’s our international tour guide taking the European versions of our characters, Session, Hop, Whim, Dark, Malt, and Smoke, on a journey across America visiting landmarks like the Statue of Liberty and the Grand Canyon.

These unique beers will be brewed and bottled in Germany then distributed throughout Europe where a host of our core brands are already present.==
