Dogfish Head Punkin Ale, Costumes & Karaoke

Fall is just around the corner, meaning Dogfish Head’s fall-flavored brews — the long-running Punkin Ale and all-new Costumes & Karaoke — are making their way to shelves and taps.

Dogfish Head Costumes & Karaoke.

Making its nationwide debut in mid-September, Costumes & Karaoke (8.0% ABV) is a golden tea-inspired imperial oat cream ale built upon a blend of spices, including vanilla beans, ginger, cinnamon and turmeric. The resulting gold liquid has aromas of ginger, cardamom, anise and vanilla, the company says, and sweet and spicy flavors of ginger, citrus and cardamom.

“With Costumes & Karaoke, I wanted to bring to life — in beer form — the intricate flavors and esters found in one of my favorite drinks, a golden milk latte,” says Dogfish Head Founder and Brewer Sam Calagione. “Golden milk, or ‘Haldi Ka Doodh,’ is a turmeric-infused milk with origins dating back centuries. Through Costumes & Karaoke, I believe, we were able to successfully pay homage to this ancient libation and create a delicious beer that offers a new and exciting experience in every sip.”

Now available from coast to coast, Dogfish Head Punkin Ale (7.0% ABV) is back with a new, steampunk look by Dan Stiles, the brewery’s collaborating artist for this year’s Off-Centered Art Series. A full-bodied brown ale brewed with real pumpkin, brown sugar, allspice, nutmeg and cinnamon, Punkin Ale made its first appearance in 1995 and has been released every year since. Copper in color, this medium-bodied liquid brew has hints of pumpkin, brown sugar and spice, the company reports.

“While I’m beyond excited to share Costumes & Karaoke with Dogfish Head fans both near and far, nothing says, ‘It’s officially fall,’ like a Punkin Ale,” says Calagione. “This time of year, I always look forward to sitting with my wife, Mariah, around the Cowboy Cauldron at our canal-front hotel, the Dogfish Inn, enjoying some off-centered ales and reminiscing about the memories we’ve made throughout the years. Typically, we would each raise a Punkin Ale, but this year, we’ll have to bring Costumes & Karaoke into the mix!”The post Dogfish Head Punkin Ale, Costumes & Karaoke first appeared on Beverage Dynamics.
