Pennsylvania Tuxedo by Dogfish Head Brewing Co.
Brewery: Dogfish Head Brewing Co
Beer Style: Pale Ale
Pennsylvania Tuxedo has this wonderful combination of grassy hops with the spruce tips really make this a standout beer. It tasted really nice in the late fall/early winter when released and made for a really easy drinking 8.5% beer.
I love the artwork on it too, something about it makes me smile. Maybe it’s because I enjoy my flannel as much as the next bearded man in the winter, or that I’m originally from Pennsylvania and I know a lot of people who would wear flannel as a fancy shirt.
Our pale ale brewed with Pennsylvania spruce tips
A spruce-infused pale ale, Pennsylvania Tuxedo pays homage to the flannel-suited hunters and gatherers who dwell deep in the backcountry of north-central PA.
Brewed in collaboration with family-run outdoor clothing company Woolrich, Pennsylvania Tuxedo is a sessionable concoction with a grassy citrus kick complemented by the resinous conifer notes of fresh green spruce tips. We went into the forests of north-central Pennsylvania and Georgetown, Del., to pick these fresh tips ourselves.
A dry yet doughy malt backbone lets the hops and spruce shine while still balancing out the bitterness, making this one an easy sipper.
