Slider Weekly Spotlight — 30 April 2018

 

If you love wine just as much as you love craft beer, you have probably found yourself on the brink of a battle when trying to decide between the two. Dogfish Head knows well how difficult such decisions can be, so they did what they do best and mixed-up the perfect solution. The expert brewmasters blended 51% fermentable sugars from grain with 49% fermentable sugars from white grapes to create the closest thing an ale can legally be to wine. Thus, Mixed Media Ale was born!

“We’ve been experimenting with grape juice in the brewing process since we first opened 23 years ago as the smallest American craft brewery,” says Dogfish Head founder & CEO Sam Calagione. “By blending the two seemingly opposite worlds of beer and wine together we’ve discovered that they collide quite nicely, and the combination of the two adds an additional thread of flavor and a layer of complexity to the mix.”

Mixed Media is a go-to beverage of choice for all wine-loving craft beer drinkers of the world, so the next time your taste buds spark an internal beer vs. wine debate, look no further. This beer-wine hybrid beauty is out on shelves and tap lines near you. Cheers!

DOGFISH HEAD MIXED MEDIA

 

The closest an ale can legally be to wine! With 51% of the fermentable sugars coming from grain and 49% coming from grapes, Mixed Media is a complex saison-esque ale brewed with a distinct Belgian yeast strain. Using a late-harvest Viognier grape must from our friends at Alexandria Nicole Cellars in Washington, you’ll find notes of white grape and melon in the aroma, and greeted with a spicy white wine body in every sip.

If you were (or still are) a fan of our Noble Rot or Oak-aged Noble Rot, you’ll be delighted with the addition of Mixed Media to our lineup of beer-wine hybrids. As our newest spin in the beer-wine world, Mixed Media appeals to both the Pinot Gris and beer drinker alike with a crisp, dry and tart ale that will leave you ‘puckering’ for more.
