Urkontinent is a social collaboration of worldwide proportions.
The seed was planted when Dogfish Head asked beer-‐loving tech types around the globe to suggest ingredients for a new off-‐centered ale.
A small team from the brewery (and
a few of our beer-‐loving tech
friends) then narrowed the list to five: wattleseed from Australia, toasted amaranth from South America, rooibos tea from Africa, myrica gale from Europe and honey from the United States.
The name Urkontinent, a German word for the theory that all of the continents were once connected, is a shoutout to the worldly recipe and ideas that make up this beer. The careful combination of ingredients gives this Belgian dubbel complex coffee and chocolate-covered cherry notes.
“Urkontinent is a valentine to boot-‐strapping creative entrepreneurs in all kinds of industries all over the world,” says Dogfish Head Founder and President Sam Calagione.
