The Beers of Dogfish Head

Shelter Pale Ale Label

Shelter Pale Ale

is our flagship beer. It's brewed with Delaware grown barley and whole-leaf Willamette & Columbus Hops. Our pale ale has a strong malt backbone and a slightly nutty flavor. 
5.0% ABV  30 IBU 

Chicory Stout

is a rich, dark beer made with a touch of roasted chicory, organic Mexican coffee, St. John's Wort, and licorice root. Brewed with whole-leaf Cascade and Fuggles hops, the grains include pale, wheat, roasted and oatmeal. We buy the coffee used in our Chicory Stout from the Oby Lee Coffee Roastery in Lewes, the only one in Delaware. We are proud to let you know the Chicory Stout
won 2 gold medals at
Chicago's Real Ale Festival in 1998! 
5.2% ABV 22 IBU


Raison D'Etre

Voted 'American Beer Of The Year' in January 2000 by Malt Advocate Magazine. A deep mahogany ale brewed with beet sugar, green raisins, and Belgian yeast. As complex as a fine red wine. 
8% ABV 36 IBU 


Indian Brown Ale

A cross between a Scotch Ale, an I.P.A, and an American Pale, this beer is well hopped and malty at the same time. It is brewed with Aromatic Barley and caramelized brown sugar. 
7.2% ABV 50 IBU


Boom Box Sampler

Our variety case which includes our three most popular brews: the 60 minute IPA, the Raison D'Etre and the Shelter Pale Ale."

Dogfish Head Immort Ale Label

Immort Ale

 is vast in character, luscious and complex. Brewed with peat-smoked barley, this strong ale undergoes two fermentations; the first on ale yeast and the second on champagne yeast. It is brewed with organic juniper berry, vanilla, and pure Massachusetts maple syrup. It is then aged on oak for at least two months. Dogfish Head Immort Ale was named 1997 beer of the year by The Philadelphia Daily News. 
11% ABV 40 IBU 


60 Minute IPA 
A session I.P.A. brewed with Warrior, Amarillo and Mystery Hop X.
Bottle-conditioned 6-packs and draft available.
6% ABV 60 IBU


90 Minute Imperial I.P.A.

Named one of the top ten cult beers by American Brewer Magazine. This beer benefits from a single, constant hop addition of Wiliamette, Cascade and Columbus, that lasts for 90 minutes. Feel the burn? That's the sickness AND the cure! 
9% a.b.v.  90 i.b.u.

120 Minute IPA

Too extreme to be called beer? Brewed to a colossal 45-degree plato, boiled for a full 2 hours while being continually hopped with high alpha American hops, dry-hopped daily in the fermenter for a month and aged for a month on whole leaf hops, 120 Minute IPA is by far the biggest IPA ever brewed! At 21% abv and 120 IBU's, you can see why we call this the Holy Grail for Hopheads!
Release date: May 1, 2003, very limited availabilty  
21% ABV 120 IBU 

Midas Touch

"It's good...It's really good." Raved The Today Show's Matt Lauer upon trying Midas Touch on air. The recipe was discovered in King Midas' Tomb and it's the oldest known fermented beverage in the world. Brewed with barley, white muscat grapes, thyme honey and saffron. It has the body of a beer but ends dry and fruity like a fine white wine.
9% a.b.v. 30 i.b.u.
750 ml (25 oz.) corked bottles. 12 per case


World Wide Stout

The worlds strongest dark beer. It is brewed using six different yeast strains over seven months and then aged for half a year. Dark, rich, roasty and complex, World Wide Stout has more in common with a fine port than a can of cheap, mass-marketed beer. (very limited availability)
2002 release: 23% A.B.V. 33 I.B.U.
