World of Beer wraps up its summer by featuring a premiere brew from Dogfish Head’s Choc Lobster. Available for the first time ever at retail outside of its own brewpub in Rehoboth Beach, Del., this beer is hard to find in bottles, and even harder to find on draft. WOB makes it easy for guests to experience this revered beer this August by featuring it on draft in taverns.
“We pride ourselves in offering rare and unique beer experiences to the casual beer drinker, beer connoisseur and everyone in between,” said Paul Avery, CEO, World of Beer. “We couldn’t be more excited to work in conjunction with Dogfish Head to debut Choc Lobster at retail for all of our customers.”
Originally inspired by an oyster stout, Choc Lobster is a 5.6 percent ABV porter brewed every summer with dark cocoa and with lobsters shipped from Dogfish Head’s friends at Ebone Cook Lobster Co., in Boothbay Harbor, Maine. This new generation of crustacean beer provides bittersweet chocolate and slight herbal notes with the taste of the ocean on the finish, and earned the Great American Beer Festival’s Silver Medal in the Indigenous Beer category in 2014.
“Choc Lobster provides an amazing, decadent, seaworthy beer drinking experience,” said Sam Calagione, founder and president of Dogfish Head Craft Brewery. “I am psyched to enjoy glasses of it with my beer brethren at World of Beer.”
