A Head of the Curve

As the saying goes, there can never be too many gluten-free beers. So it's welcome news to hear that the highly regarded Delaware craft brewery Dogfish Head will release its Tweason'ale in bottles in December, according to an interview with founder Sam Calagione.

Tweason'ale is a sorghum-based beer brewed with fresh strawberries from Fifer Orchards, near Dover, Delaware, and buckwheat honey. For the sorghum, the brewery sourced a dark, sweet syrup with notes of molasses. The beer gets its name from the fact that the initial batch was brewed and served during the transition between spring and summer

The beer, to be sold in four-packs, will be produced at the Milton, Delaware brewery for national distribution. Dogfish Head intends to pursue gluten-free certification, ensuring that gluten levels will measure less than 10 parts per million.
