Dogfish Head Tweason’ale

The wait is over! Dogfish Head’s latest release, a “gluten-free beer with gusto,” has made it to New Jersey! We’re astounded by the amount of inquiries we’ve received for this barley-free, sorghum-based brew blended with dark buckwheat honey and local wild strawberries. What you might find even more surprising is that a gluten-free beer was the #1 style requested by fans via the Dogfish Head website! Stranger things have definitely happened, but this is truly a sign of the times and how they are a’changing here in the craft beer industry.

Dogfish Head founder Sam Calagione rose to the challenge and set off to create the most truly unique gluten-free beer on the market. Instead of using traditional barley, which is off-limits for sufferers of celiac disease, he chose a special sorghum syrup that possessed similar molasses characteristics to that of malt. From there he blended in freshly-pressed wild strawberries sourced locally from Fifer Orchards in Delaware and then added dark buckwheat honey from Ohio to round out the flavor and provide a rich malty complexity. Tweason’ale is 6%abv and can best be described as a fruit beer/mead love child! So, whether your diet requires gluten-free beer or you’re just a fan of interesting craft beers, you should surely give this one a whirl!

Tweason’ale is now available in 4-packs and on draft. And in case you were wondering, this is the first of four batches that Dogfish Head will be brewing be-‘tween’ the seasons this year, so be sure to check back with us about the next release!

About Celiac disease

Celiac disease currently affects over 3 million people in the United States. It is an inherited auto-immune disease that produces a chronic sensitivity to the food protein gluten, found in the grains wheat, barley and rye. Because this disease is so widespread affecting both adults and children, gluten-free food products are popping up in nearly every local grocery store across the country. And luckily for beer lovers suffering from this disease, there are several breweries around the country in addition to Dogfish Head that are now producing tasty craft-brewed gluten-free beverages!
