“I’m looking forward to working with Eric and Paul at Concrete Beach on a whole series of collaborative brews,” said Sam Calagione, Founder & Brewer, Dogfish Head. “As we move forward together with our Dogfish brewers and like-minded creative brewers, like our inaugural project with Marco and the team from Okcidenta.”
As part of the new residency, Dogfish Head and Concrete Beach are planning a variety of collaboration brews, focusing on session and sour ales utilizing local ingredients with De Las Americas being the first. The two breweries will also be working together on a series of events throughout the spring featuring Dogfish Head’s signature Randall device that infuses beer with flavor-enhancing ingredients.
“We’re so excited to work with our Dogfish Head co-workers for the first time and get the chance to collaborate on an intercoastal brew with our friends from Okcidenta in Argentina, using ingredients that represent our homes across ‘Las Americas,’ said Paul Frederickson, Head Brewer at Concrete Beach Brewery. “We’re also happy to introduce some Dogfish Head styles to our draft lines on a more regular basis. This is the beginning of a bright future working with the Dogfish team and other like-minded breweries.”
