D.N.A. 2012 stands for Delaware Native Ale 2012 - it's a DFH brew made with all Delaware native ingredients. Our own Mr. BrimmingHorn was asked to create a braggot recipe for this years DNA brew utilizing local blueberries, wildflower honey, malted barley, and our own DNA yeast cultured from peach orchards.

Here's the Description (http://www.dogfish.com/brews-spirits/the-brews/brewpub-exclusives/dna-2012.htm)

and he's the one actually making the braggot in this video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yravzBbfHnA&feature=share) not doing the talking

So proud of him! ;D

It's only at the DFH Pub here in Delaware. I don't think there are plans to make big batches of it. They are distilling some of it too. I had some of the distilled spirits last night before they put it on the market and the blueberries and honey are SOOO predominant! Alison is AWESOME at what she does. ;D

Hmm, time to plan a trip to Rehoboth. We did have a blast last time through. How long do I have before it's all gone?

It's a 6-7 barrel batch, but quite a bit got distilled. J's last braggot at the pub (Beewolf (http://www.dogfish.com/brews-spirits/the-brews/brewpub-exclusives/beewolf-braggot.htm)) lasted about 10 days.

Soyala - If I can get a few bottles I'll send you a pm!

You rock hard core but don't promise too much or the whole board will be after you! Especially if it goes out the door that fast, wow! Maybe a hint a recipe for us homebrewers who have been considering a braggot and think a blueberry one sounds om nom nommy...if it's not copyrighted or anything. (Obviously we can't get their special yeast, but it's worth a shot! I could just SMELL that brew through my screen!)

10 days! Holy cow. I will probably miss it then. :(

Congratulations to the happy brewparents. It sounds like a braggot to brag about. And the spirits! My NOSE is covetous.

We went and tried it today. It has a light honey sweetness, tasted very like a red wine with a lot of blueberry aroma and flavor. Lightly carbonated. Very much more like a lightly carbonated blueberry mead then a braggot. Refreshing and delicious and I wanted to keep drinking them but it clocked in at 10%! :o
