Maui Brewing / Dogfish Head Liquid Breadfruit Ale Returns

imageFrom Maui:

Maui Brewing Company’s first bottling project launches today with the very limited release of Liquid Breadfruit Ale. Originally brewed in 2012, Maui Brewing Company again partnered with Dogfish Head Craft Brewery incorporating the Delaware brewery’s native DNA yeast. The imperial golden ale is brewed with toasted papaya seeds to give mild bitterness, and notes of pink peppercorn and ‘ulu (breadfruit) to lend rich tropical fruit character with hints of fresh baked bread.

“Dogfish Head is proud of our collaboration with Maui Brewing Company on Liquid Breadfruit. Beer has often been described as liquid bread. And our use of indigenous breadfruit, papaya seeds, and experimental hops come together in a tropical triangle that makes this beer like nothing else on earth. As enticing and memorable as the island itself,” wrote Sam Calagione, President & Founder, Dogfish Head Craft Brewery.

Breadfruit, which is a traditional staple in Hawaii, has a high-quality protein and a potato-like consistency when cooked, packing a healthy dose of vitamins and minerals. According to Diane Ragone, PhD, Director of Breadfruit Institute | National Tropical Botanical Garden on Kauai, “Breadfruit is a very versatile fruit which can be used so many ways: soups, salads, baked goods, fries, entrees, appetizers, snacks, and more. It’s very exciting that Maui Brewing Company is expanding the use of this crop and supporting farmers and regenerative agriculture in the islands through its production of Liquid Breadfruit. Looking forward to enjoying the beer with some ‘ulu chips!”

The opportunity to drink the tropical fruitiness of Liquid Breadfruit, which will be sold in 750ml bottles only in the Hawaii market and with narrow availability at both Maui Brewing Company locations in Kihei and Lahaina, begins today.
