Link Flight: Dogfish + Deltron 3030, Mary’s Maple Porter, Super Hero Pairings, more

You can get a flight of beers, so why not a flight of interesting beer related links? Say hello to our new feature.

Dogfish Head is teaming up with Deltron 3030 for their next musical/beer collaboration. There’s a new Deltron album on the way (FINALLY) and this is to help commemorate that.

Named after a key track on the first album, Positive Contact is a 9% ABV hybrid of beer and cider brewed with wood-pressed Fuji apples, roasted farro, a handful of cayenne peppers and a late dose of fresh cilantro. This sweet-and-sour Belgian-ish brew is a light straw color with fruity, cider-like notes. The cayenne and alcohol give it a warming finish.

The beer will be released in a dynamic box set of six 750-ml champagne bottles, with a 10-inch vinyl EP of four new Deltron 3030 remixes created exclusively for this project, and a list of Deltron 3030-inspired recipes from a small group of renowned chefs (see below). Invite some friends over, rock the album, drink the beer and whip up a multi-course meal. It’s a house party in a box. (read more)
