American Wild Ale
Limited (brewed once).
Sam worked with the Delaware Economic Development Office and Department of Agriculture to assemble a team of entrepreneurs, farmers, educators, historians and public servants. Together, they not only made a Delaware-centric ale, but a bit of history, too.
Abbott's Mill: For the first time in nearly 50 years, this 18th-century mill near Milford rattled to life to produce a consumable product. Manager Jason Beale and his team milled more than 400 pounds of barley for DNA.
Fifer Orchards: Armed with petri dishes, technicians from Dogfish's quality control lab worked with fourth-generation farmer Bobby Fifer to capture wild yeast to ferment DNA.
University of Delaware: Professor Thomas Evans and plant diagnostician Nancy Gregory helped Dogfish Head sequence the DNA of the yeasts, allowing us to choose the best strain to ferment and flavor the beer.
State government: In another first for the First State, Gov. Jack Markell declared the strain the Honorary State Yeast.
Also, Dogfish Head Purchasing Manager Chad Collier added hops from his homegrown batch, and Fifer provided fresh peaches and pears to help flavor the beer.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
A: Hazy golden color with no head, but some very small rings of lacing formed as I drank.
S: Very light aroma, fruity with peach as the most detectable aroma, hints of pear and some spice.
T: Again, very light with peach and pear. There is a slight floral hop flavor and a bit of wheat and barley.
M: Light and crisp, very easy drinking.
O: Pretty good beer, great idea/concept. Thought it was really cool for a bunch of different groups in Delaware coming together to make this beer possible.
Serving type: on-tap
