Delaware Trip Part 2

It took me a little while to finally get around to Part 2 of this, as Part 1 was alllll the way back on August 10th. But I had to get around to do a little editing of video, the results of which are at the bottom of this post.

The Dogfish Head Brewings & Eats in Rehoboth Beach, DE is a great place to stop on a summer day or evening. Great beers, good food and friendly service. Plus there's an outdoor seating area so you can still be in that wonderful Delaware ocean breeze.

One of our main goals in our trip to Delaware was to acquire bottles of the above, the Dogfish Head Sah'Tea. The last time we went to the brewpub, this was a brand new, Rehoboth-exclusive brew, and it was delicious, as evidenced by Jeff's October 2008 review here. But since then, it had become popular enough to bottle! NYC's State Liquor Authority has yet to approve it's label for some reason, so it's not yet available for us to purchase.

And of course, no trip to the land of the Dogfish is complete without it's crowning achievement, 90 Minute IPA.

And finally...

We used to frequently wonder how crazy it would be to attempt to CHUG Dogfish's biggest IPA, the 120 Minute. At 18% ABV (BeerAdvocate lists it as 21% but the DFH website says 18%) it seemed like it would be quite an intense experience. So we figured, since we were in the home state of Dogfish and could get bottles of 120 Minute for cheaper than we can here in NYC, why not give it a shot? (Plus, we were going to see WEEN and it was a much easier way of pre-gaming) Neither of us are good at chugging, and doing so is usually looked down upon by us and the rest of the craft beer community, but...we just...had to..

We've got NOTHIN' on this guy though:
