Since 1995, DuClaw Brewing Company of Baltimore, MD has “Made It Cool” by creating dozens of amazing and unique styles of beers over the years and distributing them throughout the mid-Atlantic region. Their top-selling peanut butter porter,Sweet Baby Jesus enjoys critical acclaim and a wide distribution, but their lineup of award-winning beers is extensive, and continues to grow.
Now they’ve created a beer unlike any other. It’s not the brewing technique, but one of its ingredients that is causing so much fanfare. This beer, which is still yet to be named, includes Dizzy Pig’s Dizzy Dust as a key flavoring ingredient. Giving the brew a decidedly different spin, this offering combines some of man’s greatest pleasures — beer and food.
“When the guys at DuClaw told me about their idea, I was stoked! We’re always thinking about ways to use Dizzy Pig in food, but to have one of our favorite breweries tap into Dizzy Pig flavors with an affiliation beer is genius!” says Dizzy Pig owner Chris Capell. For the past few months Chris has been working with DuClaw’s own Brandon “Millhouse” Miller, to develop, hone and balance the flavors in this epic release.
DuClaw featured the new partnership brew at Dizzy Pig’s DizzyFest in early June to rave reviews. We caught up with Millhouse at DizzyFest and asked him about their goals with this brew. “We wanted something that would enhance the experience of eating great food, bbq . . . hanging out on the back porch. . . eating crabs. . . good friends and smoke from the grill.” Brandon continued, “Dizzy Pig embodies everything about what we wanted to achieve with this new release, which will be at growler fill stations throughout Maryland, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York City, DC, Virginia, Delaware, North Carolina, South Carolina, West Virginia, Ohio, Rhode Island, Connecticut, and Kentucky.”
Keep your eyes peeled later this summer at a tap near you! In the meantime, make sure to try out any of the awesome brews DuClaw puts out. They are all worth tasting! Visit their website here. We look forward to a long relationship with DuClaw!
