Attention Dogfish Head Fans: Very Limited Quantity of Their Newest Available at kybecca
We just received a very limited allocation of the newest from Dogfish Head - the Theobroma. This one is another of Dogfish Head's attempts to recreate an ancient beverage. According to the brewery, "This beer is based on chemical analysis of pottery fragments found in Honduras which revealed the earliest known alcoholic chocolate drink used by early civilizations to toast special occasions. The discovery of this beverage pushed back the earliest use of cocoa for human consumption more than 500 years to 1200 BC. As per the analysis, Dogfish Head’s Theobroma (translated into 'food of the gods') is brewed with Aztec cocoa powder and cocoa nibs (from our friends at Askinosie Chocolate), honey, chilies, and annatto (fragrant tree seeds). "
Here's the deal on this beer: No holds, limit of 2 per customer. Also, it's only available at the William Street store.
