Dogfish Head will be adding to its family in 2013. The craft brewing industry heavyweight announced a new core beer, Sixty-One, which is the brand’s first core addition since 2007.
As the name might suggest, Sixty-One is a nod to the flagship 60 Minute IPA. The idea is to start there but then take the brew one-ingredient louder, Spinal Tap-style, and blend it with the beer/wine hybrid flavor for which Dogfish Head is also known. The one-louder ingredient: syrah grape must from California.
Sixty-One comes in at 6.5 percent ABV and will hit the shelves in March. Four-packs will be available four times a year throughout Dogfish Head’s 27-state distribution network.
