DNA New World IPA - a ground-breaking collaboration beer - has made its long-awaited return to bars this month as the Wells & Young’s guest ale for September.
The beer first launched in April 2013 in cask, and is the product of an inventive craft beer collaboration between Charles Wells Ltd, which is Wells & Young’s parent company, and Dogfish Head, a US East Coast Brewery.
Emily Hudson, marketing manager at Wells & Young’s said: “After its overwhelming popularity earlier this year, we simply had to bring DNA back again.
“September is a particularly relevant time for DNA to make a return in cask, with its off-the-wall pump clip and unique background set to peak interest amongst drinkers during Cask Ale Week.”
It was created at the Wells & Young’s brewery in Bedford by taking a special reduction from 60 Minute IPA, a popular Dogfish Head beer, and integrating it into the Wells & Young’s brewing process.
In other words the brewers took the very DNA of one beer and added it to the brewing process of another resulting in a craft beer that is unique, diverse and a little bit special.
The beer, which has a toasty, nutty start followed by a highly hopped and citrusy finish, created a buzz amongst beer lovers earlier in the year and has been brewed in a limited run once again for September.
It is available in selected local Charles Wells pubs and some national outlets.
