On Tuesday, November 26, Dock Street Brewery is re-releasing the Amber Ale, one of our award-winning classics – and the beer that started it all. One of the first microbreweries in the USA, Dock Street opened in 1985 with one beer that set the bar high for the new wave of American brewing.
Today, our iconic Amber Ale is still brewed with Cascade Hops and Two Row Pale and Caramel malts, and is then dry-hopped lending a bright, crisp hoppiness to a remarkably complex and balanced brew. Dry-hopping this classic top-fermented ale is an homage to the style’s traditional recipe, and adds layers of hop nuances that is a staple of American Craft Brewing.
In the past two decades, we’ve expanded our repertoire with countless new favorites, limited release collaborations with the likes of Four Seasons and Whole Foods, and plenty of groundbreaking experimental styles.
But, since reopening in West Philadelphia in 2007, we have never brewed our original Amber Ale – until now! We’re revisiting an old favorite, and it’s too good not to share.
Join us for a celebration of our beloved Amber Ale at Dock Street (701 South 50th Street, Philadelphia PA / 215.726.2337) where in addition to being on tap directly from the bright tanks in the brewery, 12oz six packs of Amber, brewed and bottled by hand on premises, will be available to take home – the perfect accompaniment to your Thanksgiving dinner.
Additionally, six packs of three of our top-rated beers – Bubbly Wit, a wheat ale brewed with champagne yeast, Prisoner of Hell Belgian Strong Ale, and the Caliente, a Golden Ale brewed with Agave nectar and Guajillo and Ancho peppers – are on sale on November 26th. Also on sale- Prince Myshkin Russian Imperial Stout in 750ml bottles.
Since nothing is more Philadelphian than Dock Street Beer – and the movie Philadelphia – on Tuesday November 26, we will be screening Jonathan Demme’s beloved 1993 flick. Keep an eye out for cameo appearances of bottles of our Amber Ale throughout Philadelphia, which Demme hand-selected for his movie, named for the City of Brotherly Love.
