COOKIE.jpg

Available at Wagshal's. Always fresh and delicious!

A black-and-white cookie, or half-and-half cookie, is a soft, sponge-cake-like shortbread which is iced on one half with vanilla fondant and on the other half by chocolate fondant created in the Bavarian region of Germany.

Notably, this style of cookie is often seen as a particularly "New York" snack coming out of "Kleindeutschland," i.e., Little Germany, a German immigrant neighborhood situated in the Lower East Side of Manhattan. SOURCE: Wikipedia

"It's up to us to really diversify, we can't just be limited to stouts... we have to push that envelope. You put the right beer in the right barrel and you're going to create some pretty interesting flavors..." - Jeremy Kosmicki, Brewmaster

Parmigiano-Reggiano. The real deal!

20171011_134200.jpg

Parmigiano Reggiano is a very versatile cheese that has been widely used in cooking since ancient times. 
Thus, it can be used in a myriad of ways:

  • as a food, eaten in small chunks, simply accompanied with bread, and perhaps wine, jams or fruit
  • as a condiment, added especially grated or in slivers to dishes that are enriched by Parmigiano Reggiano in flavour and aroma (some of the better known examples are Italian pasta, as well as vegetable or fruit salads)
  • as an ingredient, used in recipes or other preparations (for example, fresh pasta filling, meat preparations, pies containing vegetables and other ingredients)

Enjoy your creativity and try the combinations and the recipes dedicated to the Parmigiano Reggiano cheese.

MEINKLANG BIODYNAMIC PINOT NOIR + PINOT GRIS

The vineyard as a biotope. In the vineyards, among protected natural ponds, precious cover crops and wild herbs grow around our vines: sweet-clover, vetches, red clover and wild grasses provide a habitat for soil organisms and beneficial organisms. The deep roots loosen the ground, forming the basis for healthy vines. At the same time, cover crops act as a natural competitor for the vines – gentle and deliberate competition is good for the development of aromas and phenols in the grapes.

We fertilise our vineyards with the compost we produce ourselves on the farm, using sheep, cow and horse manure, pomace, green waste and occasionally also rock dust.
Robust and healthy vines can only grow in soil which is alive, producing completely individual wines full of character.

FLYING DOG THE FEAR

We brewed The Fear with a local pumpkin puree and a secret blend of spices. But once you take a sniff and a sip, those spices become quite apparent. (Hint: Think pumpkin pie.) Anything seasonally spicy or sweet will beautifully complement this rich and complex brew.

DOGFISH HEAD PUNKIN ALE

Every Beer Has A Story... here's Punkin Ale

A full-bodied brown ale with smooth hints of pumpkin and brown sugar. We brew our Punkin Ale with pumpkin meat, brown sugar and spices. As the season cools, this is the perfect beer to warm up with.

Punkin Ale is named after the seriously off-centered southern Delaware extravaganza Punkin Chunkin (check out some of these Discovery Channel videos of Punkin Chunkin, you gotta see it to believe it!). In fact, Punkin Ale made its debut as it claimed first prize in the 1994 Punkin Chunkin Recipe Contest. Yes, that was a full 6 months before we even opened our doors for business!

Punkin Chunkin has grown in size and scale, with pumpkins now being hurled more than 4,000 feet through the air! If you come down to see if for yourself, drop by and visit us.

Since its debut, we've brewed Punkin Ale each and every fall. It is released right around Sept. 1 each year. When you find it, grab some extra because it's usually gone by Thanksgiving.
