Amidst the cold and snowy winter season, Dogfish Head Craft Brewery is bringing the heat, by debuting a new spring-themed variety. Dogfish Head’s Spring Variety Pack contains an assortment of four off-centered ales, including 60 Minute IPA, SeaQuench Ale and Namaste. It also highlights the limited-time return of Festina Pêche as a variety pack exclusive.
Packaged in 12-ounce cans, the 12-pack variety is available now at Dogfish Head’s coastal Delaware locations, and will hits shelves nationwide in late February.
Dogfish Head’s Spring Variety Pack includes three cans of each of the following beers:
• 60 Minute IPA (6.0% ABV): A continually hopped IPA, 60 Minute IPA is brewed with a boatload of Northwest hops added continuously throughout the beer’s 60-minute boil, for a pungently hoppy, but not crushingly bitter flavor, the company says.
• SeaQuench Ale (4.9% ABV): A session sour mash-up of a crisp Kolsch, a salty Gose and a tart Berliner Weiss brewed in sequence with black limes, sour lime juice and sea salt, SeaQuench Ale is an exhilaratingly crisp, citrusy-tart union.
• Namaste (4.8% ABV): A Belgian-style white ale, Namaste is Dogfish Head’s off-centered take on the classic witbier brewed with dried organic orange slices, fresh-cut lemongrass and a bit of coriander for balanced, zesty flavors of citrus and sweet malt, and a slightly spicy finish.
• *Variety Pack-Exclusive* Festina Pêche (4.5% ABV): An uber-refreshing neo-Berliner Weiss, Festina Pêche is a fruit-forward session sour brewed with truckloads of fresh peaches for a tart, yet slightly sweet beer with bright notes of peach pits and rinds, the company says.
“Social media followers, Dogfish fans everywhere, we heard you loud and clear,” said Sam Calagione, Dogfish Head founder and brewer, in a statement. “The last time we released Festina Pêche was 2018, and ever since, drinkers from across the country have been advocating for its return. I love that we’re finally able to give them that with this variety pack! Personally, I can’t wait to pick up a Spring Variety Pack, make myself a nice ‘Namas-tina’ beer cocktail (that’s equal parts Festina and Namaste for a beach party in a glass) and daydream of the sunshine.”
