Beer Review: Dogfish Head Craft Brewery Festina Peche

Style: Berliner Weissbier
ABV: 4.5%

Fun Fact About the Brewery:

Founded in 1995, Dogfish Head is a purveyor of world-class craft beers and apparently they recently started distilling spirits, too. These days, you can find their 60 and 90 Minute IPAs just about anywhere. And did you know DFH is in Delaware? Did you even remember that was a place? It's a state, even! Look it up, jerk!


I had this at Collins Pub last Friday after walking a couple miles in Seattle's one day of 90 degree heat for the year. So, at that moment, this was pretty much the most refreshing thing to ever cross my lips. Festina Peche is fermented with peaches, which allows the yeast to feed on the sugar from the peaches. This makes for just the smoothest, slightly tart and tangy fruit beer I've ever tried. And the mellow ABV is an added bonus. Long live delicious summer beers.

Rating: 4.5/5
