When I say “breakfast beer,” what’s the first beer that comes to mind? Maybe a delicious coffee stout. Something that will open the eyes but not sour your stomach. Dogfish Head Craft Brewery, known for its “off-centered” flavors, including granola and moon dust (not joking), has definitely gone to a new level with its brewpub exclusive: A breakfast stout that includes scrapple. If you’re asking, “What’s that?” You’re not alone.
The Dogfish Head blog explains:
For the quintessential Delaware touch, 25 pounds of a super-lean version of Rapa Scrapple’s famous recipe. Rapa, the world’s largest producer of scrapple, was started by brothers Ralph and Paul Adams in Bridgeville, Del., just down the road from Dogfish. If you’re not from the mid-Atlantic, you might be scratching your head right about now and thinking, “What the heck is scrapple?” Well, scrapple is a patty made of pork scraps, cornmeal and spices, kind of like a cross between bacon and a sausage patty. In other words, it’s awesome.
The brewery is releasing the experimental breakfast concoction on draft only in conjunction with a special breakfast-themed happy hour. Just another way Dogfish Head is using events to spur beer drinker excitement. For all the details, be sure to read the whole story over at the Dogfish Head Blog.
