Dogfish Head and Atlas Obscura partner on unique beer
Fermentation Engastration (10% ABV) is brewed with barley, spelt, muscat grape juice concentrate, flaked rice, apple juice concentrate, honey rice syrup, date syrup, yeast, hops and rose petals. The limited edition beer will be available for purchase at Dogfish Head’s Milton, Delaware, brewery, and GiveThemBeer.com, while supplies last.
“Here at Dogfish Head, we’ve never been afraid to go against the grain with experimenting with unique, high-quality culinary ingredients in our beers,” Sam Calagione, Dogfish Head founder, said in a statement. “As brewers and ‘mad scientists’ of sorts, it’s always been a fascination of ours to deconstruct, reimagine and reassemble how drinkers experience each sip of a new beer. Our latest example of that thinking is Fermentation Engastration, kind of like the ‘turducken’ of beer, which artfully melds a whole myriad of complex ideas and brewing concepts into one multi-layered drinking event.”
“The curious minds at Atlas Obscura and Dogfish Head share a common obsession with searching for the unusual in food and drink,” Warren Webster, Atlas Obscura CEO, said in a statement. “We knew that anything could happen if we teamed up with Dogfish Head, and sure enough we found magic in Fermentation Engastration. Like our partnership itself, this beer is proof that bringing together unexpected ingredients can yield wonderful results.”
