(Milton, DE) –
Dogfish Head Sahtea
recently got label approval and is scheduled to come out this month. The beer was featured as part of the oft-referenced New Yorker article. Not much has been written about it yet beyond that except by those who have found it on tap like Hop Nation. They also posted a description of the beer:
“A modern update on a 9th century Finnish proto-beer. Brewed with rye, we caramelize the wort with white hot river rocks, then ferment it with a German Weizen yeast. In addition to juniper berries foraged directly from the Finnish country-side we added a sort of tea made with coriander, cardamom, lemon grass, Indian Black Tea, and ramps leaves. The spicing is subtle and balanced and Sahtea is a highly-quaffable, truly-unique brew with a full-mouth feel.”
Sah’tea is 9% ABV and will be released in 750 mL bottles.
