Dogfish Head Aprihop

Well, the weather outside is frightful, but this week’s feature is simply delightful! Dogfish Head’s famous spring release, APRIHOP, is back on the scene and ready to help put a little extra “spring” in your step on this dreary Monday morning!

While the name may fool you, this is definitely not your average fruit beer. In fact, you could classify this brew as more of an IPA with a side dish of apricots. Heavily hopped in your typical “off-centered” fashion, Aprihop is then dry-hopped with Amarillo for an extra boost of hoppy goodness on both the nose and palate. The addition of fresh, luscious apricots lends just the right amount of sweetness to harmonize with the citrus and bitterness provided by the hops, hops and more hops! This is the ideal spring beverage for any bitter brew lover. One sip and you’ll forget all about that cold, wintery mix waiting outside your door!

Food Pairing Ideas
Try pairing Aprihop with similar foods that you would normally pair with an IPA. The combination of bitter hops and sweet apricots would make a great match with sinfully sweet desserts like carrot cake or glazed fruit tarts, or with spicy barbeque, Indian or Mexican cuisine or grilled meats and fish. BON APPETIT!

Aprihop is now available in 4-packs, 1/2 and 1/6 kegs!

And if you’re heading down to the Atlantic City Beer Festival in a few weeks, be sure to look for Aprihop on tap at the Dogfish Head booth!
