With the changing of the calendar in the coming week Dogfish Head Brewery is the latest to share its 2018 Beer Release Calendar. The 22-year-old brewery from Delaware will return with many of its classics along with a few new beers for the coming year.
In the coming year Dogfish Head will return with popular longtime offerings such as 60 Minute IPA, 90 Minute IPA, 120 Minute IPA and the more recent addition of SeaQuench Ale. One of the new debuts for 2018 that we are most excited for is Dogfish Head’s collaboration with The Flaming Lips. Being such a creative mind blowing band, the forthcoming Dragons & YumYums is sure to be a huge hit this spring and summer.
Here’s a rundown on many of the beers that are part of the Dogfish Head Brewery’s 2018 Beer Release Calendar with descriptions provided by the brewery.
