Morton's Dogfish Head Hoppy Hour

When Sam Calagione opened Dogfish Head in 1995, it was the smallest commercial brewery in America, making just 10 gallons of beer at a time. Today, Dogfish Head is among the fastest growing breweries in the country and known for their strong, exotic beers.

On Friday, May 7, at 6 p.m., Morton’s (441 Vine Street in Carew Tower) will offer Queen City beer lovers a unique tasting experience featuring four different and uniquely crafted Dogfish Head brews, each paired with a selection of cheeses and accompanied by petite filet mignon sandwiches, tuna tartare canapés, smoked salmon wedges and lamb chops with brie.—- A beer specialist will be on hand to give a short presentation on each beer being sampled.

The Dogfish Head selections to be featured include:

• Midas Touch – a Turkish recipe for the oldest known fermented beverage in the world.

• Raison D'Etre – A Belgian style Ale that's brewed with beet sugars and raisins.

• 90 Minute IPA – Dubbed the “Best IPA in America” by Esquire Magazine.

• Palo Santo Marron – A distinctive brown ale aged in handcrafted wooden brewing vessels made of Paraguayan Palo Santo or “Holy Tree” wood.

The reasonable ticket price of $45 per person actually includes tax and gratuity. Morton’s will donate $5 from every ticket to the Make-a-Wish Foundation. Call 513-621-3111 for tickets or more information.
