Dogfish Head’s Firefly Ale Sticks Around for Encore

Think English-style pale ale brewed with English heritage hops.

If you missed the Firefly Music Festival in Dover last month, you can still get a taste of it through its official brew: Dogfish Head’s Firefly Ale. DHG describes it thusly: “A sessionable pale ale that we like to think is a highlight for more than a few festival-goers. Firefly is an English-style pale ale brewed with Marris Otter barley and English heritage hops (because the Sex Pistols invented punk rock). To add a fruity and citrusy aroma, there’s a late addition of American Calypso hops (because the Ramones invented punk rock).” It’s malty, with a biscuit character and moderate bitterness. Slightly spicy and crisp finish. See more here, or stop into the Rehoboth brewpub for a glass.
