Dogfish Head Release Celebration: Beer to Benefit the Rehoboth Art League
August 3, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 9:00 pmFree
REHOBOTH, DEL. (July 26, 2022) – From eccentric, off-centered can designs to one-of-a-kind brewing inventions, there is an art to everything that happens at Dogfish Head Craft Brewery. Dogfish will pay homage to its innovative, art-centric roots by honoring the Rehoboth Art League with the release of Bonjour Pierre, a new limited-edition beer inspired by a life-sized mannequin, coined (you guessed it…) Pierre! Bonjour Pierre (6.6% ABV) is a cold India Pale Ale brewed with toasted rice and flavored with rose buds, rose petals and rose hips for an appealing whiff of a summertime garden, inspired by a lazy stroll through the grounds of the Rehoboth Art League.
These nostalgic sensations are complemented by a blend of floral, herbal and fruity French hops, with aromas of geranium, peach, strawberry and thyme.
Releasing Saturday, Aug. 3 at 11 a.m., at Dogfish Head’s Rehoboth brewpub, Brewings & Eats, a portion of the proceeds from Bonjour Pierre will benefit the Rehoboth Art League (RAL), a non-profit organization dedicated to encouraging and preserving the arts.
“The inspiration for the beer is Pierre, RAL’s beloved life-sized mannequin, who has been used for decades here as a reference for life drawing, a core component of artistic training,” said Sara Ganter, Rehoboth Art League Director. “We are thrilled to partner with Dogfish Head on its latest Benevolence Beer to highlight the role that our non-profit plays in the community’s artistic development. Dogfish Head has been a longtime supporter of the arts, and this collaboration is the perfect way to mark our role in the arts scene—past and present.”
Bonjour Pierre will be available on draft, for on-site consumption, at Dogfish Head Brewings & Eats and to-go in 4pk/16oz. cans at Dogfish Head’s Off-Centered EmPOURium in Rehoboth. Priced at $17 per 4pk. The evening of the release, the Rehoboth brewpub will also host a Benevolence Night, in which 10% of all proceeds from 5-9 p.m. will be donated back to RAL. Stemming from the early days of Dogfish Head, its Beer & Benevolence program is committed to giving back to the community through creative collaborations with non-profit organizations. Dogfish Head endeavors to foster community, nourish artistic advancement and cultivate environmental stewardship, and partners with groups that share the same ideals and passions. Dogfish Head’s Beer & Benevolence beer series takes its initiatives a step further with the release of a series of four beers each year, each conceptualized and brewed with a different local non-profit, with a portion of the beer’s proceeds benefitting the collaborating organization.
