The Dogfish Inn Will Have 16 Beer-Themed Rooms and Beer-Infused Toiletries

Dogfish Head, the brewery behind beer made with actual meteorites, is consistently upping their brew game. Now Delaware, which is officially winning in the race I just invented for coolest state, will soon open a Dogfish Head Hotel, or the “Dogfish Inn,” come Spring 2014. I’m breaking out a beer right now to celebrate.

The inn will take over the former Vesuvio Motel near the harbor, halfway between the Dogfish brewpub and the Dogfish brewery in Milton, Connecticut. It will have sixteen beer-themed rooms, with soap and shampoo infused with beer. Each room will also include a mini fridge, beer glasses and bottle openers on the wall, which sounds like the making of a beautiful, drunken weekend.

Dogfish Releases Beer Made with Actual Meteorites

Ever wonder what’d it be like in the future to hit up a bar on the other side of the galaxy, have some moon beer and maybe even get into a drunken fight with a 8-foot-tall space slug? Well, maybe you can have one out of three.

In celebration of the fall equinox, The Dogfish Head Brewery is going out of this world to make a special kind of ale that can’t be found anywhere else on the planet. The Delaware-based company created what they proudly call their Celest-Jewel-Ale, which is made from lunar meteorites. The meteorites were first crushed into dust and steeped like tea in an Oktoberfest beverage.

The moon dust is made mostly of minerals and salts, which help the fermentation process, ironically adding a more earthiness texture to the drink. Dogfish acquired the lunar meteorites via ILC, a design and development company that makes spacesuits for NASA.

Celest-Jewel-Ale, at 5% ABV and 25 IBUs, is definitely a limited time brew at Dogfish and only available at Dogfish Head’s pub in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. Once it’s gone, there’s literally nothing in this world that would taste the same.

Grub Like a Grumpy Sailor With Beer-Infused Clam Chowder

It’s easy to argue Captain Ahab was an angry, maniacal loon, but maybe he was just drunker than he thought. That’s the story I would roll with anyway, and thanks to Delaware’s Dogfish Head brewery, acting like a belligerent seadog now comes standard with a bowl of IPA-infused Clam Chowder.

Dubbed “Hard Tack,” Dogfish Head’s belly-warming slop is based on a recipe from Moby Dick – a mixture of Ocean Quahog Clams, salted pork and hardtack biscuits infused with the brewery’s famous 60 Minute IPA. Of course, side-effects may include brooding at cemeteries and asking people to “Call you Ishmael.” But when paired with an Indian Brown Ale or 90 Minute IPA, there’s no better way to ride out a particularly trying voyage, even if it’s just in a inflatable donut down a crowded lazy river.
