Use Pour Judgement And Celebrate National Drink Beer Day With Dogfish Head

By  |  0 Comments

September 28 is National Drink Beer Day and there’s a little tap takeover/pint night going on at PJs with everyone’s favorite off-centered brewery.

You have to hand it to Dogfish Head Brewery…once they established a strong lineup to provide a backbone to the company, they had no fear of breaking the rules of style and tradition when creating some one-offs or bizarro beers (like the Choc Lobster tapped at Pour Judgement almost a year ago today).



Tonight, Pour Judgement will be tapping six of their beers on what is conveniently National Drink Beer Day (not to be confused with National Beer Day, celebrated April 7). Here’s the selection:

SeaQuench

SeaQuench Ale is our session sour quencher made with lime peel, black lime and sea salt. It’s a citrusy-tart union of three German styles of beer blissfully brewed into one. We begin by brewing a straightforward Kolsch with lots of wheat and Munich Malt, then we brew a salty Gose with black limes, coriander and our sea salt. We follow it all up with a citrusy-tart Berlinerweiss made with lime juice and lime peel. All three beers are then blended together in the fermentation tank to create this German hybrid.

We’ve had this beer and it’s great…but the best thing about it is imagining Sean Connery say it’s name.

Namaste

A witbier bursting with good karma. Made with dried organic orange slices, fresh-cut lemongrass and a bit of coriander, this Belgian-style white beer is a great thirst quencher.

Bier De Provence

Inspired by the fields of Provence in southern France, Bière de Provence begins with 2-row wheat and rye malts, and Jarrylo hops. A bounty of herbs, including lavender, bay leaf, marjoram and chervil, gives it a floral and spicy nose. With a hazy golden appearance, Bière de Provence is fermented using a Belgian yeast strain lending to a sweet and malty flavor profile. This summer saison has a smooth finish with a flavor that’s just as complex as it is crisp and refreshing.

90 Minute IPA

Esquire calls it “perhaps the best IPA in America”. While the lighter 60 Minute IPA has found itself outgunned and out-hopped in the ever escalating IPA fight, Dogfish’s 90 Minute IPA helped define the Imperial India Pale Ale when it was released in 2001 and set a bar that most breweries still find a challenge to beat.

Punkin

A full-bodied brown ale with smooth hints of pumpkin and brown sugar. We brew our Punkin Ale with pumpkin meat, brown sugar and spices. As the season cools, this is the perfect beer to warm up with.

Midas Touch

Here’s one of those really weird beers we were talking about. Originally released in 1999, Midas Touch has that unique duality of being based on one of the oldest beers ever discovered…but also being one of the oldest craft beers on the market today!

This sweet yet dry beer is made with ingredients found in 2,700-year-old drinking vessels from the tomb of King Midas. Somewhere between beer, wine and mead, Midas will please the chardonnay and beer drinker alike.

Come on down!

The reps will be at Pour Judgement distributing samples and swag from 7 pm onward, so come down, get yourself a pint glass or two and enjoy some Dogfish beers!
