Dogfish Introduces Off-Centered Brats

In addition to their popular hop pickle (learn more in “Gonzo for Gherkins: Craft Beer and Pickles“), Dogfish Head is now collaborating with Hans All-Natural to create a line of brats cooked with Dogfish beers. So far, four different sausages have been created:

  • Spicy Espresso Brats are made with espresso powder, minced habanero and cumin. A touch of Chicory Stout is a smooth, chocolatey foil to the mild heat.
  • The Greek Feta Brat is made with feta cheese, mint, spinach, cumin, lemon and a dose of Midas Touch.
  • The Heirloom Italian Brat is based on a recipe from Dogfish founder Sam Calagione’s family, and gets a helping of beer/wine/mead hybrid Midas Touch.
  • Bratwurst, the classic, is made with white pepper, coriander, mace (a cousin of nutmeg) and mustard. The Bratwurst is dosed with Belgian dark ale Raison D’Etre.
