    Although I love Dogfish Head, somehow I'm not so sure this is going to go well. I'm hoping they don't go too crazy with it.

    Sounds very interesting and I'm a Dogfish Head fan. The Rodenbach Grand Cru is an excellent beer and I just hope it finds its way to Texas so I can try it.
    Now for some Sixpoint Resin Cheers!

    FWIW, I've actually been able to find Grand Cru on shelves at Whole Foods here in Dallas pretty consistently and on tap occasionally at Flying Saucer (a really exceptional deal when it's on draught for $3 pints on Mondays).

    Collaborations are always good. Not everyone may like the end project, but when you have very knowledgeable brewers working together, good things are born. I am pretty excited, being a Dogfish Head fan. Bring it on.

    This is certainly an intriguing collabo, but why would they waste the effort making yet another pointless, weenie beer? Session ales are an abomination, a waste of (not enough) malt.

    No, it's mentioned in the article- 4.5% to 5.5%, canned.

    Btw, I see that Alexander is now available in 4-packs, which I'll take as great news (even though I haven't pulled the trigger yet :wink:).

    Yeah, I kinda understand where you're coming from. But excuse me, this is their beer and you need not buy it!! What is a "weenie beer"? Their concept and your pre-judging are not quite in sync. Please don't be threatened by these people.
    I've had great session ales in the USA and England.......

    I hope it hits shelves around my area. Dogfish head is one of the breweries you either love or hate- I like most of their offerings except 120 minute- Sam is kinda of weird dude also-

    Stop the gatekeeping. Buy it or don't.

    Well, the 2SP-DeRanke collaboration, "Gravity Never Fails," turned out fairly well so there may be hope...

    You know when I first looked at that picture of Sam and Rudi Ghequire I thought Rudi was Brian "Little Guy" Selders. They look a little bit alike, right? I'd love to see them in a cage match!!!

    Had the great pleasure of visiting the Rodenbach brewery in Roeselare last Fall and the tour was one of the highlights of a wonderful trip. I was not a big fan of "sours" but Rodenbach's brews made me a believer. This collaboration is a BIG THING and the result will be delicious.

    As long as it’s reasonably priced I’m tryin’. I was excited to see the American Beauty IPA in sixers (never tried yet) but it was $15 and I had to leave it sit. Lots of past mediocre ratings didn’t justify that price IMO. Opted for $10 sixer of Resilience instead this week which I haven’t tried yet.
