Dogfish Head Quick Sip Clip: American Beauty Hazy Ripple IPA

Dogfish Head: It’s been a long strange trip, and we’re not about to stop now. After six years and four releases of American Beauty, we’re back with an encore … only this time you haven’t heard the melody.

Together with the Grateful Dead, we’re proud to introduce our latest collaborative iteration – American Beauty Hazy Ripple IPA.

Inspired by the Grateful Dead’s beloved “American Beauty” album, American Beauty Hazy Ripple IPA is an unfiltered India Pale Ale brewed with spelt – an ancient heirloom grain that contributes earthy notes and a natural haze – that’s then dosed with a special yeast variety to accentuate hop aromatics.

The result is a psychedelic 7.0% ABV ale that’s bursting with notes of tropical fruit and juicy citrus, while the style callout lovingly references the fan-favorite track “Ripple.”

Superior Bathhouse Brewery To Launch New "Viking" Beer

HOT SPRINGS, ARKANSAS- OCTOBER 24, 2019 -- Superior Bathhouse Brewery will be debuting a new experimental beer in mid-November to herald the arrival of the city’s newest mountain biking event- Güdrun Northwoods Mountain Bike Festival which will be held at Northwoods Trails, Hot Springs’ premier multi-level mountain biking trail system, on November 15-17. Owner and brewer Rose Schweikhart, master brewer Jimm Powell and the brewery team are brewing a traditional Nordic Vossaøl Ale with Norweigian farmhouse yeast (Kveik), locally sourced Juniperus Virginiana (also known as Eastern red cedar) and the world-famous Hot Springs thermal spring water.

“We have really enjoyed researching and brewing this beer because it’s so out of the ordinary! Experimental beers are our passion, we love it when customers can come in and drink something they won’t find anywhere else in the State. We have 18 different beers on tap at any given time and use ingredients from around the world and our own back yards to make our beers unique and of course delicious. We’re weird and we like weird beers.” - Jimm Powell, Master Brewer at Superior

“Kveik” refers to a small variety of traditional Norweigian farmhouse style yeasts that have been used in small-batch brewing across the Nordic countrysides, passed down within families and communities for generations. These yeasts haven’t been commercially available in North America until recently. The literal translation of the term is “yeast.”

Superior Bathhouse Brewery is a proud sponsor of the Güdrun Northwoods Mountain Bike Festival which is managed by Visit Hot Springs and will be one year old in November. Superior regularly partners with Northwoods on events and is excited to be able to brew this special beer for the inaugural run of Güdrun.

Registration is still open for the Güdrun. Please find more information here ->

Superior Bathhouse Brewery has been brewing traditional and experimental style beers with the Hot Springs thermal spring water since 2013 and is the only brewery inside a U.S. national park. The taproom located at 329 Central Ave in downtown Hot Springs is open daily at 11 a.m. and serves 18 taps of in-house brews as well as gourmet sandwiches, sausages, pretzels, and small plates, featuring Arkansas grown farm-to-table meats and produce.
