"There can't be good living where there is not good drinking" - Ben Franklin

Have you ever wanted lobster AND chocolate in your beer? Well maybe not but we drank it.

In education we talk about the origins of the BJCP.

Brews in the News: 

- Craft beer drinkers have healthier habits than others.
- There was a massive theft of Sweetwater beer

The Beer

DOGFISH HEAD CHOC LOBSTER

Official Description: Choc Lobster was originally brewed to pair with a chocolate lobster bisque and white chocolate lobster salad slider. Sam happened to be at that dinner and got a real kick out of the beer, so we decided to brew a big batch for the pub so everyone else could try it. 

This scaled-up batch has a robust porter base and was brewed with live lobsters, which were added directly to the boil to cook off for the kitchen. Along with the lobsters, just over 6 pounds of dark cocoa powder were added to the whirlpool, along with a basil tea that was added to compliment both the chocolate and lobster.

ABV: 5.6%
IBU: None listed
