Four Patriotic Brews for the Fourth

Happy Independence Day fellow Americans!

This year at Bailey’s we’re doing a little something special to celebrate the Fourth.

In honor of our independence from tyrannical British beer laws, we’re tapping two of the most unconventionally American ales we know of: Dogfish Head’s 2010 Red and White and 2010 Black and Blue.

Red and White is an Imperial Witbier brewed with heaps of orange peel and coriander, dosed with some pinot noir juice and partially aged in oak barrels, while the Black and Blue is a Belgian-style Golden Ale fermented with blackberries and blueberries.

Both clock in at an appropriately American-sized 10% ABV and both will be available in 12 oz snifter glasses for $10 and in 4 oz samplers for $4.

For those looking for something a little more quaffable on their Fourth, Anchor Liberty and Alameda American Rye will be available at our usual affordable prices. And then of course there will be 17 other all-American beers that unfortunately do not share names with any patriotic slogan,  theme, or historical figure.

In partnership with Anchor Brewing and General Distributors, we’ll also be accepting donations to Hope for the Warriors, which is a nonprofit that helps to improve the lives of US service members and military families. For more information, you can visit their website at:
