Dogfish Head Festina Peche

The season for wheat beers is upon us! By now your fridge is probably stocked with hefeweizens, witbiers and American wheat beers a-la-plenty. If you’re looking for something a little more funky though, Dogfish Head’s Festina Peche is your ticket to summertime bliss. Tart, refreshing and fruity, Festina Peche is based on a classic North German-style of wheat beer known as Berliner Weisse. This style’s trademark is an unmistakable tartness produced from the lactic cultures added during fermentation. Dogfish Head puts their signature twist on this traditional German recipe by adding in a big ol’ heap of sweet, succulent peaches to the boil. This “neo-Berliner Weisse” therefore eliminates the need for sweetening syrups that are traditionally served at German bars to counteract the extreme mouthpuckering acidity. Delicious, low in alcohol and extremely cleansing on the palate, Festina Peche is the perfect aperitif to enjoy on the patio this season or to serve alongside light summertime fare such as fish, chicken and salads.
Pucker up! Festina Peche is now available in 4-packs, Half Kegs & Sixtels.

Also new this week: Ta Henket
The latest in Dogfish Head’s Ancient Ales Series, Ta Henket uses an Egyptian strain of yeast that Sam himself went to Cairo to propagate. “Ta Henket is brewed with an ancient form of wheat and loaves of hearth-baked bread, and it’s flavored with chamomile, doum-palm fruit and Middle Eastern herbs.” Now available in 750ml bottles and Sixtel kegs
