Founder Sam Calagione was still working on his business plan for Dogfish Head Brewery when he first tested a homebrew recipe for a “breakfast-themed stout,” and now the company is back in the breakfast business, Dogfish Head announced in a blog post on Monday, November 17.
The new “everything-but-the-breakfast-nook” stout is a hearty homage to the full American breakfast, containing maple syrup harvested from trees where Sam met his wife; barley smoked over applewood “for that applewood, bacon-y aroma;” lactose (milk sugar); 25 pounds of Delaware Rapa Scrapple (a patty made of pork scraps, cornmeal, and spices); and finally, a special coffee blend from The Bean Factory in St. Paul, Minn.
Beer for Breakfast is a draft-only beer that will be served exclusively at Dogfish Head Brewings & Eats in Rehoboth Beach, Del., and will debut December 5 at a special Happy Hour. Calagione and members of the Rapa Scrapple team will celebrate the debut with “a lineup of breakfast-inspired food specials,” including scrapple pizza and scrapple eggrolls.
