Beer Advocate ‘Extreme Beer’ Debuts at Dogfish Head

by Dave on February 22, 2009

UPDATED: Here’s Dogfish Head’s Sam Calagione discussing the beer.

From Beer Advocate:

If you couldn’t make it up to the EBF this weekend you still have a chance to try this highly anticipated beer. “Up Up Down Down Left Right Left Right BA Select” will go on tap at the Dogfish Head Brewpub in Rehoboth Beach, DE today at 4:30 PM.

We have a VERY limited quantity and it won’t last long.


Inspired by a shared love and respect for America’s extreme beer movement, Italy’s emerging craft beer scene, and the kitchen sink attitude and devilish drinkability found in Belgian brewing, the collaborative recipe is the result of numerous emails and phone calls discussing the ingredients, final characteristics, and new ways to look at extreme brewing. Jason, Todd, Sam, and Bryan each provided unique spins to ensure maximum off-centeredness and deliciousness.


– Maple Syrup (Grade A, Massachusetts)
– Chestnuts
– Green Peppercorns
– Korean Corn Tea “Oksusu-cha”
– Fawcett’s Maris Otter Base Malt
– Dash of MFB Kiln Coffee Malt
– Liberty & Vanguard hops
– Dogfish Head’s Raison D’Etre House Yeast Strain
– Aiming for 8% ABV
