Hop Heaven - AHopEclipseNow! Beer Dinner at the Dogfish Head Brewpub


We like the simple things in life (in no particular order) - sunshine, the beach, palm trees, family, friends, live music, good food, beer and those glorious hops. We're definitely hopheads - we’ve yet to meet a beer that was too hoppy for us! So when we got to attend Dogfish Head's AHopEclipseNow! Beer Dinner a month ago, we were in hop heaven!




Before we headed upstairs for the dinner, Sam invited everyone outside for a little show. And that's when we got a chance to see little hop mobile in action! We weren’t quick enough to grab a video (it may have been the pre-dinner brew we decided to have!), so you have to check out Sam and his buddy Ken Marino is this hysterical video to see how cool this car really is!

Now, back to the dinner! How can things go wrong when the first beer you're welcomed with is this year's release (with new, awesome bottle art!) of Aprihop? It was a gorgeous night down at the beach, and this beer was perfection for such a warmer wintery night. The Dogfish Head crew paired Aprihop with the Welcome Chartcuterie Platter of Serrano Ham, Soppresatta, Lardo & Apricots, Beemster XO, Cabot Clothbound Cheddar and Buttermilk Blue. In addition to all of those goodies, on the tables were sharing plates of Esplette Popcorn, Smoked Marcona Almonds and Mixed Nuts. We loved that this was how the night was starting out!

After the Welcome Reception was over, we got to hear from Sam, who welcomed us to what was going to be a very cool night, giving us the lowdown on what to expect, before turning it over to the Chef, who walked us through what we were going to be indulging in, making us even more hungry than we already were!

Things were a bit different with this beer dinner, and in a very fun way. We've done several beer dinners at the Dogfish Head Brewpub over the years and most of them have followed the traditional beer dinner format - several amazing courses paired with several amazing brews. But AHopEclipseNow! switched that up - attendees decided what beers they thought paired best with each small plate within each course. Everyone was given smaller pours of 6 different beers:

· 60 Minute
· Constellation Funk
· 75 Minute on Cask
· Indian Brown Ale
· Burton Baton
· 120 Minute


And now, the fun began. The beers came pretty quickly which rocked so we could kick off the pairings and start tackling our ideas of what paired best together. Plus, for each of the "danger caps" we could request another smaller pour of a few beers, and with the redcap, we got a full pour of the beer of our choice. Fun stuff, right?

Okay, now moving back onto the dinner. It was broken down into three courses, 1st Course, 2nd Course and Desserts. Check it out...


1st Course:

• Korean BBQ Wings & Kimchee – we loved how this paired with 60 Minute and Constellation Funk. The subtle heat of the wings was so good with both of the brews. The Asians flavors really pulled together with the 60 Minute.
• Braised Bacon & Black Truffle Egg Salad – the smokiness of the bacon went well with Indian Brown; and the nuttiness of the black truffle rocked and rolled with the Burton Baton.
• Crab Salad and Watermelon with Chili Threads – this salad was delicate and amazing, so we wanted to go with a beer that wouldn’t overpower the flavors. Our favorite beer with this course was the Constellation Funk. Want to make a similar salad? Check out this Dogfish Dish recipe!

2nd Course:• DFH Spicy Espresso Sausage and Chili Mustard – the spiciness from the sausage and the chili mustard complimented all of the beers, in our opinion, which was kind of fun.
• Lamb Chops and Parmesan Frites – the 120 was the clear winner with this course, but we also like how the lamb and parmesan frites paired with the 75 Minute and Indian Brown
• Venison Stew – Indian Brown was one of our favorite pairings for this course. It really seemed to pull out the flavors of the stew. 75 Minute was another brew that we thought worked well with this part of the 2nd course.

Desserts:
(yes, that is supposed to be plural)
• Ancho and Belgian Chocolate Truffles – here’s another course that we loved pretty much every brew we had throughout the evening. The spicy flavor from the ancho was a great compliment to the rich Belgian chocolate. Oh how we love chocolate and beer!
• Chocolate and Bacon Cheesecake – although we may love chocolate and bacon even more! We’ve had this cheesecake with World Wide Stout, pairing it with Indian Brown, Burton, 75 Minute and 120 Minute were pretty much out of this world too!
• Carrot and Orange Cookies – for some reason we didn’t expect the 120 to pair so well with these cookies, but they did! This was another dessert treat that we also liked with Indian Brown, Constellation Funk and Burton Baton!

All night long we had such a good time basically playing with our food, trying to figure out what we thought paired best with what foods. We’re thinking we might have to try a little something like this at home with friends!

Feel like you missed out on the Brewpub Beer Dinners? You’re in luck – there’s one more for the season next Sunday, April 27th with a Small Batch Beer Dinner theme! It’s way too easy to get tickets too – all you have to do is click here!

And now we're off to daydream about hops, hops, and more hops! Cheers!

Keeping It Local for the Holiday Season

It's hard to believe the holidays are well upon us already! Are you stumped on what to buy the craft beer lover in your life? Or need to drop a few subtle hints on what you'd like to receive this holiday season? Well, keep it local folks, and look no further than one of our local breweries to help you finish up your holiday shopping! 

We decided to suggest a few of our favorite items from the breweries around the state again this year. Check them out!  

16 Mile Brewing Company

16 Mile Hoodie, $35, available at the brewery
16 Mile Taphouse Growlers
Whether you're visiting the Tavern at 16 Mile Brewing Company in Georgetown, or the 16 Mile Taphouse, located on Main Street in Newark, here are two ways you can show your love for 16 Mile: the 16 Mile Brewing Company hoodie, which you can purchase down in Georgetown, or a 16 Mile Taphouse growler that you can fill right there on Main Street!  16 Mile has you covered whether your in Northern or Southern Delaware! 

3rd Wave Brewing Company 

Surfboard Unisex T-Shirt, $16
Winter Beanie
3rd Wave has some pretty cool surf-inspired gear for that craft beer lover on your holiday shopping list. Check out their Surfboard Unisex T-shirt rocking their slogan, "Good Friends Good Waves Great Beer" across the surfboard. Want to keep your noggin warm this winter? We're digging the beanies the brewery just got in. Can't make it down to Delmar before the holiday? No worries, just hop on their website and place your order! (Side note: you may need to contact the brewery about the beanie if you're looking for that. When we were on there on 12/12/13 it hadn't been added quite yet).  

Argilla Brewing Company


You have to love when a holiday gift for someone else turns into a little holiday bonus gift for yourself! When you purchase a $50 (or more) gift card from Argilla between now and December 31st, you'll receive a free $15 gift card for yourself, to be used between January 1st, 2014 and March 1st, 2014. Happy Holidays to everyone in this equation! 


Dogfish Head Craft Brewed Ales
DFH4Life Hoodie, $55
2013 Tap Handle, $40
Thinking about hopping on the DFH site to do some holiday shopping? They're trying to make it as easy as possible for you by suggesting several "Holiday Items." They even went one step further and broke it down to "Under $20," "Under $50," and "Damn! That's Luv!" For under $20 you can't go wrong with a Randall Jr. ($19.99). They're a blast to experiment with. Go a little crazier in the under $50 range with the 2013 Tap Handle which will ring up at $40. If you're feeling even more generous this year, how about the DFH4Life Hoodie for $55? And like we mentioned, no worried if you can't make it down to the Tasting Room in Milton or the kiosk at the Brewpub in Rehoboth; you can order all of these items from DFH's website!                                                                 
Randall Jr., $19.99
  
Fordham Brewing Company/Old Dominion Brewing Company
2014 Pinup Calendar, $10
Save $5 and purchase both for $45
Are you a fan of Dominion's Bomber Girls? Then you might want to check out the 2014 Pinup Calendar, featuring winners from several Dominion-hosted Pinup contests throughout 2013!

Speaking of 2014...did you know that you can already purchase your tickets for R2Hop2 (April 26th, 2014) and Cheesetoberfest (October 4th, 2014)? This is a great gift for a friend...or for yourself! Throw yourself into super rock start status when you buy that craft beer loving gift recipient tickets to both events! Bonus: you'll save $5 when you buy them together! 

Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant

King of the Hill, $25
Winter Wheat Wine Ale
Gift Package, $35
Iron Hill Brewery is helping make your holiday shopping as simple as possible with their Holiday Gift Menu! If you know someone who visits Iron Hill pretty regularly, you should sign them up for the King of the Hill Rewards Club Program. The $25 annual fee is a loyalty program that earns points for purchases and visits. There are all sorts of perks like a handmade mug, free birthday gift and invitations to exclusive events. Is the craft beer lover on your list already a member of the King of the Hill Club? No worries, why not check out one of Iron Hill's Gift Packages, with prices ranging from $35 - $65. 


The newest brewery in the state has a very unique gift to give this holiday season - a bit of an investment in the brewery by making a pledge in their indiegogo campaign! Pledge $25, and receive a Mispillion River Brewing t-shirt. Go for a $100 pledge, and you're getting a Mispillion River Brewing growler, t-shirt and hat! Have some really special on your list? A $500 pledge will get you a bar stool, always guaranteeing a spot at the bar. A $1,000 pledge? That will get one of the brewery fermenters dedicated to your gift recipient. Oh, and as if that isn't cool, the $1,000 pledge will also give them a chance to design and brew a beer recipe! Major cool points! 

Stewart's Brewing Company

You can't go wrong with purchasing the craft beer lover on your holiday list a Mug Club membership at Stewart's...unless of course you think they may already be one...then just pick them up a gift card and they can spend it on a night out at Stewart's, on a growler fill or two, and if they aren't already a member of the Mug Club, a great excuse to go ahead and finally join!  



Twin Lake's Brewing Company
Do you have a bike riding friend who loves great craft beer? Why not pick them up the Twin Lakes Cycling Jersey? After all, the whole point of riding those long distance rides is the reward of a craft beer at the end, isn't it?! Sometimes I personally like to put together a gift bag or basket and include several smaller similarly themed items. I could easily do that with the Twin Lakes' baseball hat and pint glass. I would throw in an IOU of either a tour of the brewery ($22 per person, held Wednesdays and Saturdays), a growler fill ($12 for a Greenville Pale Ale and $15 for their seasonal brews) - or better yet, BOTH! 


Know that you want to get the craft beer lover on your holiday list a craft beer related gift, just not sure what to get them? Many of the breweries in the state offer gift cards - you can't go wrong with that! Either way you're supporting one of our our fantastic local breweries and you're pretty much guaranteeing that you're going to be giving one of the coolest gift you friend, family member or significant other will get all holiday season long! Nice!

HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!
