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.
Dogfish Head Hard Tack Chowder: $4 @ Dogfish
