Ever get maced? Well, you’re about to.
Dogfish Head Craft Brewery just announced a blazin’ collaboration beer called IN YOUR MACE!, brewed for the Beer Advocate Extreme Beer Fest in Boston. A dark roasty beer with a tan head, IN YOUR MACE! is a coffee milk stout brewed with cinnamon verum chips from the Zanzibar Islands, mace spice, milk sugars, coffee, chicory, and most importantly, chili oils, the active ingredient in Mace Brand pepper spray.
For this unique beer, Sam Calagione, CEO and founder of Dogfish Head Craft Brewery, teamed up with high school bud, Eric Crawford, Vice President of Sales of Mace Security International, Inc.
Any day we get to brew a beer wearing full body suits, face masks and respirators is a memorable day in the brewhouse.
“We’re always in search of unique, avant-garde, experimental beer ideas that push the boundaries of traditional brewing while still delivering rich aromas, flavor profiles and culinary ingredients that Dogfish beer fans count on and love,” said Calagione. “IN YOUR MACE! is one of our most fun and personal partnerships to date and I’m super proud of this small-batch team-up with our friends at Mace Brand pepper spray. Any day we get to brew a beer wearing full body suits, face masks and respirators is a memorable day in the brewhouse.”
Clocking in at 5% ABV/35 IBUs, this smoky, moderately sweet stout gives off spicy nutmeg, anise and espresso aromas with a palette-warming chili spiced finish.
