Montesano, Wash.’s punk pioneers the Melvins influenced Seattle’s popular sludge and grunge greats like Nirvana, Soundgarden and Green River. Milton, Del.’s Dogfish Head Brewery redefined experimental craft brewing, concocting “off-centered ales for off-centered people.” What do the two have in common? Well, this video at the least. Sam Calagione, founder and president of Dogfish Head, talks about his company’s specialty beer, the 75 Minute IPA, in this quick and informative YouTube video. IPAs being our Beer of the Month, this video is apropos, although the band influencing this beer is not the Melvins (just watch the video).
Blend two Dogfish Head favorites, add maple syrup and carbonate the mixture naturally. What do you get? 75 Minute IPA. The carbon dioxide trapped during bottle conditioning gives 75 Minute IPA a soft and velvety mouth-feel. Dry-hopped with whole-leaf Cascades, this complex IPA has been known to inspire pilgrimages to the company’s brewpub. Today, Dogfish Head shares this animated blend of 60 Minute and 90 Minute with the rest of its fans, 750 milliliters at a time. Learn more above.
