A Hop Eclipse Now: Dogfish Head IPA Dinner Tonight at Alla Spina

url

Dogfish Head Brewery, the artists of all things hops, has teamed up with Sierra Nevada to create a collaboration IPA called the Rhizing Bines, and to celebrate, chef Mike Deganis of Alla Spina has created a four-course pairing dinner to pair with it, as well as four other Dogfish Head beers. The IPA diversity bursting out of the Dogfish pipes is really quite impressive and this IPA seems to be something special—so special, it’s got its own specially designed glass.

The dinner is tonight, and it’s $60 a head, which includes five beers, four courses, and you get to keep the IPA glass. There are revolving seatings from 6-8:30 pm, call or book online to make a reservation.

    I bought a few of the glasses from Sierra Nevada because the Dogfish version was out of stock. Not sure I notice any accentuation of aroma or flavor but the glasses are cool.
