Transcript of Beer 101

So, what is beer anyways?

Malted barley



Malted barley is milled to expose the starchy interior of the kernel.

Barley kernels are mixed with water in the mash tun.

The water and grain are separated by a process called lautering.

Sweet water mixture called “wort” is transferred to a kettle to be boiled. Hops are added to balance flavor.

Mixture is cooled through a “heat exchanger."

Cooled liquid is moved to a “fermenter” where yeast is added. Yeast converts sugars into CO2 and alcohol.

Conditioning occurs as a beer matures and flavors develop and intensify.
Year-Round Brews
The heart of our portfolio
The most abundant ingredient
Traditional beer styles evolved as a result of local water sources
Regional water characteristics effect flavor
Modern breweries can adjust local water to mimic water qualities for a particular style.

Pilsen (Czech), soft water: responsible for the crisp but delicate malt profile, clean hop flavor
Burton on Trent (England), hard water: accentuates hop bitterness.
Barley is steeped in water to begin germination
Germination is stopped after starch is formed in the kernal
Kilning the barley fixes the starch content and adds color
Contributes flavor and aroma to beer.
Flavor in the form of bitterness, spicy character, citrusy notes.
Aroma can be floral, citrus, herbal.
Bitterness from the hops is contributed by Alpha Acids, and is measured in IBU’s (International Bittering Units)
Added during fermentation to impart a floral, pungent aroma quality
Dry-hopped beers include 60/90/120 min, Hellhound, Aprihop, IBA (and more)
Sofa King Hoppy – Our Hopping machine
Randall – Examples of hop influence
Single celled organism that turns wort into beer
Added to the fermenter to convert sugar to alcohol and CO2
Adds flavor and aromas unique to the specific yeast strain used
Two main types for brewing: Ale & Lager (Top and Bottom Fermenting)
Fruit – blueberry, raspberry, grapes, raisins, apples, pumpkin, orange peels
Honey, Molasses, Sugar (Belgian, Muscovado)
Chocolate, Coffee, Chili peppers, etc.

The analysis pointed to the ingredients used in this unique brew: wheat, lingonberries, cranberries, myrica gale, yarrow, honey and birch syrup.

The vivid rose hue of this imperial Pale Ale comes from a combination of Munich and Caramel malts and a touch of red rice from Louisiana, birthplace of musician and collaborator Julianna Barwick. Citrusy Simcoe and Centennial feed Julianna’s love of hops, and the star of the show is her go-to ingredient: wasabi. The Japanese root adds bittering and herbal notes similar to hops, with its subtle heat creeping in after the kick of carbonation.

Food Pairings:
Grilled pork chops, tikka masala, white pizza, summer strawberry salad with yogurt dressing, sharp aged cheddar, buttermilk blue.

The ingredients in our recipes come from the earth and the oven.
They come from interfering
and letting be.

We use organic and natural ingredients wherever possible
and our recipes are
blissfully inefficient.

We spend premium prices on
the finest barley, hops & herbs.
We use no extracts.

For us, brewing is not a process
of automation,
but of imagination and passion.

We wrap our hands around plastic
shovels to clean out mash tuns.
We wrap our hands around sticky
clumps of whole leaf hops
and toss them into the boil kettle.

We wrap our hands around our work
because we are proud to make
something with our own hands.

We hope you enjoy drinking
Dogfish Head Craft Brewed Ales
as much as we enjoy making them.
