Samuel Adams - Wicked Easy – Light & Hazy Lager

Super-juiced with haze for days. How about a rush of pineapple over here? How about a one-two punch of mango and peach over there? Wicked Hazy is a little bit extra - a blast of tropical fruit, with a smooth, silky finish. It’s like a beautiful swirling magic-eye for your mouth, if that makes sense. Drink up, it will soon.

Ellsworth Cheese Curd Poquitos paired with Dogfish Head 60 Minute IPA

Spicy little pockets of cheese and meat filling.

Ellsworth Cheese Curds

From the Cheese Curd Capital of Wisconsin, Ellsworth Cooperative Creamery Natural White Cheddar Cheese Curds taste like no other because they are crafted with only rBST free milk from our 450 family farms throughout Wisconsin and Minnesota. The longer the cheese remains inside the sealed/unopened package the more enriched the cheddar flavor becomes. The health-conscious consumer will appreciate they are crafted using the highest quality farm certified rBST free milk. They are also high in calcium and protein, contain no added sugars, no carbs, zero trans fats, and are gluten-free.

Dogfish Head 60 Minute IPA

Brewed using a boatload of intense Northwest hops, we boil this continually hopped IPA for a full 60 minutes, adding more than 60 hop additions continuously to create a bold and timeless flavor. Continually hopped to deliver a pungently, citrusy, grassy hop flavor without being crushingly bitter, 60 Minute IPA is a surprisingly sessionable IPA for the craft enthusiast.

Fried Chavrie® Goat Cheese Salad paired with Dogfish Head SeaQuench Ale

Crispy and delicious fried Chavrie® goat cheese salad served with colorful fruits and vegetables. Fresh arugula, beets, carrots, peas, avocado, berries and a homemade raspberry poppyseed dressing.

Chavrie Goat Cheese

A purely spreadable, ultra smooth goat cheese with a fresh burst of flavor in every bite. Chavrie®, the first and finest American goat cheese, was introduced in 1989 in its soon-to-be-classic pyramid shape. Since then, Chavrie® has now expanded to include three exciting ways to enjoy the fresh, creamy taste of our goat cheese: pyramids and logs. The harmony between our animals, farmers, and nature imparts an exceptional purity and quality to the milk produced on our goat farms, which in turn creates unsurpassed levels of flavor and wholesome goodness in our cheeses.

Dogfish Head SeaQuench Ale

Objectively the most refreshing beer we’ve ever brewed, SeaQuench Ale is a session sour mash-up of a crisp Kölsch, a salty Gose and a tart Berliner Weiss brewed in sequence with black limes, sour lime juice and sea salt. The result? A citrusy-tart union that has captured the attention and hearts of beer, wine and margarita drinkers alike!
