Dogfish Head Piercing Pils

It’s that time of year again! Piercing Pils is back in our warehouse ready to carry you through the holidays. This Perry-Pils hybrid is brewed with pear juice to add a crisp flavor and gentle acidity that pierces through the Czech hops. The citrus notes from the Amarillo hops blend perfectly with the fruit and White Tea. It’s a refreshing 6% sipper that you won’t be able to put down. Pair it with some Manchego or Chevre cheese at your next holiday party or pour yourself a pint with your next BBQ or fish taco dinner. However you drink it, drink it soon… this is the last year for Piercing Pils!

Here’s a quick sip clip of Sam Calagione talking about the very first test batch of these sensational pear suds:

Coming soon to a store near you is Bitches Brew! Keep a lookout for these 25oz bottles of a dark beer that’s a fusion of three threads of imperial stout and one thread of honey beer with gesho root. It’s a gustatory analog to Miles Davis’ 1970 masterpiece – Bitches Brew.

Did you Know?
DFH created the hoppiest beer ever documented … Hoo Lawd! “We’ve created another boundary-pushing off-centered ale. This time, it just so happens to be the hoppiest beer ever documented through scientific analysis. While the average IPA lands somewhere between 40-60 IBUs, this latest release clocks in at 658 IBUs (international bittering units). Hoo Lawd, as we’ve affectionately named it, comes from the sensation you get after you take your first sip.” Check out the Details here!
