Woolrich and Dogfish Head Craft Brewery are excited to announce their first collaboration, featuring goods both wet and dry. The two brands, both dedicated to the true craftsmanship of their products, are collaborating on a limited batch of beer and a Made in USA capsule clothing collection.
“We’re so excited about working with a fellow Northeast company dedicated to American-made craftsmanship,” says Josh Rich, Executive Vice President of Woolrich. “Dogfish Head and Woolrich share so many common values, so it’s been a wonderful experience collaborating with Sam and his team. And of course, it doesn’t hurt that they make fantastic beer.”
The custom small-batch Woolrich x Dogfish Head beer, dubbed Pennsylvania Tuxedo, was brewed with spruce tips from Woolrich, PA at the Dogfish Head Brew Pub in Rehoboth this past May. Named after the head-to-toe red and black wool outfits that woodsmen wear in New England, the 4.5 ABV Rye Pale Ale reflects the brewery’s signature tagline, “Off-Centered Ales for Off-Centered People.”
Pennsylvania Tuxedo will debut as draft-only at Analog-A-Go-Go, Dogfish’s music and beer festival, June 13th & 14th in Delaware. It will also be served at select events on the Eastern Seaboard.
Additionally, Woolrich and Dogfish have partnered to create a nautical-inspired capsule collection as part of the collaboration, which includes a classic chambray men’s button-down and a long women’s beach shirt, as well as a 100% soft wool throw blanket, a beach hat and a coozie. A port and starboard theme will be featured throughout, with red and green anchor stamped buttons, co-branded labels and a screen-printed Dogfish Head logo on pockets. The entire collaboration will be entirely made in the USA.
“Dogfish and Woolrich have very similar DNAs,” says Dogfish Head president, Sam Calagione. “We’re both family-owned, east coast companies committed to our communities, obsessed with celebrating nature and using the best natural ingredients we can get our hands on.”
