Old Dominion Brewing Co. (Dover, DE) recently announced the release of Double D Double IPA and Morning Glory Espresso Stout in 12 oz. bottles. Previously released in 22 oz. bombers, the new 12 oz. six-packs will be available year-round.
Both beers sport vintage pinup girl label designs and a healthy dose of double entendre. These labels represent quite a departure from their more traditional designs (shown on the right).
Anyway, I've previously tasted and enjoyed their Oak Barrel Stout. So I'll look forward to tasting these new beers (samples provided by Old Dominion). For more on Double D and Morning Glory, check out the press release below.
Dominion Brewing Announces Six-Packs of
Double D and Morning Glory
Double D and Morning Glory
Dover, DE – Dominion Brewing fan favorites Double D and Morning Glory will be moving from 22oz bombers to 12oz six packs.At the end of February, pinup girls Double D and Morning Glory will be welcomed to the Dominion Brewing year-round family. Double D is a full-bodied Imperial India Pale Ale, flaunting sultry guava, mango, and tropical fruit aromas as a result of dry hopping with Citra, Zythos and Crystal hops. Brewed with light toasted malt and Bravo bittering hops, this double delights with smooth warming alcohols and a torrid finish. This daring draft will deploy at 9.0% ABV and 90 IBUs. Glory is a full-bodied Espresso Stout that utilizes locally roasted coffee beans. Waking up at 9% ABV with the aroma of espresso and taste of chocolate, she will give drinkers a jolt.
President and CEO of Fordham & Dominion Brewing, Jim Lutz, stated, “When we sat down to design the artwork for our pinup series we made sure that the labels reflected the personality of the beer inside. Our visionary artist, Ryan Telle, really nailed it with Double D and Morning Glory. We are excited to bring this remarkable artwork to six-packs.”Cherry Blossom Lager will be available in 12oz six-packs and on draft. It will hit shelves and taps in the Mid-Atlantic region in March 2013.
###The Fordham & Dominion Brewing Co. history is the story of two Delmarva craft breweries deciding to buck tradition and defy the ordinary. In 2007, Fordham and Dominion combined forces in Dover, DE. The breweries jumped at the chance to challenge expectations, merging two craft breweries while maintaining their separate identities.
Fordham has been brewing since 1995 and Dominion has been brewing since 1989. Together, they brew out of Dover, Delaware. They provide weekly tours of the brewery (located at 1284 McD Dr., Dover, DE) in conjunction with samples of their beers, such as Oak Barrel Stout, Double D, Rams Head IPA and Copperhead Ale.
