First new 12-ounce 4-packs in half a decade

09.06.2011– What's the No. 1 thing Dogfish lovers ask for at our pub, in our brewery and on our website? Gluten-free beer. But not just any gluten-free beer -- they want gluten-free with gusto.

"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 Tweason'ale.

For our first new 12-ounce 4-packs in nearly half a decade, we replaced the classic barley foundation of beer with a mild, high-maltose 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.

Tweason'ale has been among the fastest-selling pub batches in our 16-year history. Thanks to the off-the-charts excitement, we are dedicating significant resources to the wide release of this beer. The 6 percent abv Tweason'ale will be distributed quarterly throughout our national network.

Hunt Dogfish down at the Great American Beer Fest next month to steal an early taste, then prep the shelves for a December delivery.
