Dogfish Head Malt Beverage, Brown Ale, Palo Santo Marron
Malt beverage aged on Palo Santo Wood. An epic brown ale. Lush and enjoyable, now this beer ages with the best of them. An unfiltered, unfettered, unprecedented Brown Ale aged in handmade wooden brewing vessels. The caramel and vanilla complexity unique to this ale comes from the exotic Paraguayan Palo Santo wood from which these tanks were crafted. At 10,000 gallons each, these are the largest wooden brewing vessels built in America since before Prohibition. It's all very exciting. We have wood. Now you do too. The ingredients in our recipes come from the Earth and the oven. They come from interfering and letting be. We use organic and natural ingredients wherever possible and our recipes are blissfully inefficient. We spend premium prices on the finest barley, hops & herbs. We use no extracts. For us, brewing is not a process of automation, but of imagination and passion. We wrap our hands around plastic shovels to clean out mash tuns. We wrap our hands around sticky clumps of whole leaf hops and toss them into the boil kettle. We wrap our hands around our work because we are proud to make something with our own hands. We hope you enjoy drinking Dogfish Head Craft Brewed Ales as much as we enjoy making them. 12% alc by vol.
