Dogfish Head Birra Romano

Brewed by Dogfish Head Craft Brewery

Saison4.7% ABV

This Brewpub Exclusive was brewed at the Rehoboth Beach brewery by our Milton-based Quality Assurance Team. Together they came up with the beer idea, recipe and name.

Birra Romano is a black saison with French Saison yeast, chocolate and black malt, lemon peel and wheat malt. It was hopped with Southern Cross hops.

The name Birra Romano is a nod to the beer's similarity to Caf Romano, espresso with a twist of lemon. In terms of flavor, Birra Romano has some clovey spice and herb notes with notable red apple esters. Most of this is yeast character, as the only thing we added other than hops and malt was lemon peel.Birra Romano, with its thin body, floats beautiful over 90 Minute IPA and Midas Touch (one part Midas to two parts Birra Romano).

When it came to creating Ripper, we drew inspiration from the coastal surf cultures of SoCal and Oz. Sourcing classic Cascade from the Pacific Northwest and Australian Galaxy hops from…yes…Australia, we made a beer both lovers of frothy peaks and hoppy green buds will be stoked about. At the same time, we stayed true to our San Diego roots by pushing the hop boundaries of this style. While some might think it lingers on an edge far closer to an IPA, with all the dry-hop flavor and aroma, it’s actually right in line with the current-day interpretation of a West Coast pale. Ours just so happens to have an Aussie accent that’s cascading with a juicy amount of grapefruit and passion fruit hoppiness.
