Brewer: Dogfish Head
Style: Pale Ale
Another beer of the forest that celebrates flannel, Pennsylvania Tuxedo pays homage to the bold folks of the north-central Pennsylvania backcountry by adding spruce tips picked right from the area (as well as from Georgetown, Delaware, near Dogfish’s home base) to a strong but dry pale ale. The beer is brewed in collaboration with Woolrich, an outdoor clothing company based in Woolrich, Pennsylvania, and is definitely a good winter-themed addition to any holly jolly occasion. It’s also surprisingly sessionable despite its 8.5 percent ABV, so watch out, and don’t get any ideas about doing any lumberjacking duties on your own. Unless you are actually a flannel-suited hunter from the Pennsylvania wilderness, in which case, we salute you.
