A 9,000 Year Old Beer will be Hitting the Stores this Summer

Image
Dogfish Head Brewery from Delaware has announced they will be recreating the original recipe of a 9,000 year old brew whose ingredients were deduced from pottery shards found in Northern China.

"University of Pennsylvania molecular archaeologist Patrick McGovern first described the beverage in 2005 in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences based on chemical traces from pottery in the Neolithic village of Jiahu in Northern China. Soon after, McGovern called on Sam Calagione at the Dogfish Head Craft Brewery in Milton, Del., to do the ancient recipe justice. Later this month, you can give it a try when a new batch hits shelves across the country. The Beer Babe blog was impressed, writing that it is “very smooth,” and “not overly sweet.”

They also have some other unique concoctions coming soon too.

  1. Since visiting the Dogfish Head brewery in Rohobeth Beach, DE last year, Dogfish Head beers have become my favorite east coast based beers. I love tasting the array of brews they have to offer and it looks like we'll be getting a really unique beer from the past to try out. Maybe I can send the guys over at Diggnation a sample and perhaps they'll give MicrobeWorld a shout out on the show! lol
