Bluejacket & Dogfish Head Collaboration “L’Interimaire” Debut + DFH Analog Experimental Brew on Tap + Meet Sam Calagione!

As we work on our boutique brewery--Bluejacket--in anticipation of a Spring 2013 opening, we continue to have amazing opportunities to brew with some of our most favorite breweries. Next Wednesday night, we will unleash the 11th Bluejacket collaboration brew, this one brewed with our close buddies at Dogfish Head!

Beginning at 6 PM, you will have the chance to taste L’Interimaire, named for the intermediate phase of Blujacket’s development (a sort of wandering brewery soon to have its very own brewhouse) as well as a nod to the French speaking origins of the beer style (Walloon Saison), hops (the French varietal Aramis), and verjus rouge (the juice of unripened wine grapes), which lends the lifting acidity and bright purplish hue to the brew!

Bluejacket Beer Director Greg Engert and Bluejacket Brewmaster Megan Parisi will be on hand for the event, and will be joined by the man behind Dogfish Head Craft Brewery, Sam Calagione! To welcome Sam to ChurchKey, we will also be tapping a bunch of outstanding Dogfish Head brews in addition to the collaboration. Perhaps most noteworthy is the newest Analog Experimental Ale for DFH: a roasty dry stout brewed with popped Buckwheat from Anson Mills and Apple Ash! Also be sure to check out the brand new Ancient Ale, Birra Etrusca, and two standouts from their Music & Beer series, Positive Contact and Hellhound on my Ale...

Additionally, we will be tapping some Bluejacket collaborations that have been set aside for special occasions! Washington, OC (our collaboration with the Bruery), as well as Mad Jacket (brewed w/ Mad Fox), will also be making an appearance!

All beers will start pouring at 6 pm. There is no admission charge for the event, and all brews will be priced individually by the glass and in 4 oz. tasters.
