Dogfish Head Urkontinent to ship mid April

Urkontinent is a very interesting collaboration between Dogfish Head and some of the biggest technology geeks in the world. They were asked what ingredients they thought would be interesting to see in a beer. DFH received 100’s of suggestions and it all came down to these:

  • Wattleseed from Australia imparts chocolate, coffee and hazelnut notes to the beer. Toasted amaranth from South America gives it an earthy, grainy flavor and a little additional roast flavor.
  • Green rooibos from Africa contributes a floral aroma and slight astringency.
  • Myrica gale from Europe supplements the bitterness from minimal hopping.
  • Hiveplex Honey from California adds a subtle sweetness while maintaining the dry finish.
 The name of this beer is German and comes from the theory that all of the continents, at one time, were connected. It’s a toast to boot strapping, creative entrepreneurs in different industries all over the world. Will be available in 750 ml bottles and limited draft. Arriving in mid April.
