Dogfish Head – Delaware Native Ale

31 October 2011

DFHLogoFrom The Republic:

REHOBOTH, Del. — Gov. Jack Markell is toasting a new craft-brewed beer with a distinctive Delaware flair.

Markell is joining famed Dogfish Head brewer Sam Calagione for the unveiling of Delaware Native Ale.

Calagione worked with state economic development and agricultural official to make a truly Delaware-centric ale, which will be available only on tap in limited supplies after its unveiling Monday.

The ale was made with barley milled at the 18th-century Abbott's mill near Milford, and Dogfish worked with fourth-generation farmer Bobby Fifer of Fifer Orchards near Dover to capture wild yeast to ferment the ale.

Fifer also contributed fruit to flavor the ale, while University of Delaware experts helped sequence the DNA of the yeasts to find the best strain, which Markell declared to be the first Honorary State Yeast.
