Last week my family and I vacationed in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, and I attended the first Taste of Rehoboth, which featured four Dogfish beers, including the Sixty One, which is pictured here. It's damn delicious: hoppy, but not too hoppy.
I love IPAs and can take them at their strongest. The Sixty One is on the lighter side: it's the brand's 60-minute IPA with California syrah grape. You can taste the grape on the first sip. And I'll tell you this: you're either going to love or hate this beer. I love it.
Before we left for Rehoboth, our neighbor Bill loaned us his Dogfish beer growler, which we had filled with the Sixty-One at the Dogfish restaurant at our last lunch in Rehoboth. Growlers are a gallon (can be less) and most commonly used by craft brewers. If you're serious about your beer, get a growler for your next visit to your favorite craft brewery. They're tight and keep for a bit. I am thoroughly enjoying our stash of Sixty-One.
If you're not familiar with Rehoboth Beach, let me tell you that in addition to a lot of beach, there is a lot of food. And a lot of drink. And it was actually quite surprising that this was the first year that they had a "taste" of Rehoboth: the restaurant scene is respectable. Go. Beach it up, eat it up.
In addition to Sixty-One, Dogfish featured Indian Brown, Etrusca, and Midas Touch. I enjoyed tasting all of them, but Sixty-One was definitely my favorite.
Soooo...what's your favorite Dogfish?
Happy sipping all!
