Dogfish Head re-bottles Namaste, adds to core lineup
Dogfish Head Craft Brewery is releasing its Namaste Belgian-style white beer in a new size. Namaste previously was only available on occasion in 750-ml bottles. Now, the brew will join the company’s core beer portfolio as a year-round offering available in six-packs of 12-ounce bottles in all states where Dogfish Head is sold. Made with dried organic orange flesh and orange rind, fresh-cut lemongrass, and a bit of pepper and coriander, Namaste was originally brewed in 2009 to raise money and awareness for 3 Fonteinen, a Belgian brewery that suffered a significant production loss. The name, which roughly translates to, “The spirit in me recognizes and celebrates the spirit in you,” also is a nod to craft beer lovers around the world for helping to spread the word about small, independent breweries, the company says.
