DogfishHead IPA’s for the Holidays
‘Tis the season for family, friends and IPAs! Why IPAs, you ask? Think of the citrusy and piney characteristics this style is known to bring to the table, and then think about those foods you’ll be bringing to the table. IPAs have a tendency to pair with an assortment of holiday favorites – everything from shrimp cocktail to chicken wings, and a little ham in-between. With five different offerings this holiday season, grab a 60 Minute, 90 Minute, Indian Brown, Burton Baton or Flesh & Blood, and raise a glass to good beer and good memories!
