Dogfish Head Shelter Pale Ale (5% ABV)


Dogfish Head Shelter Pale Ale (5% ABV)
(not available)
Availability: Year Round

This is our original brew (we began it all making this very beer on the original teeny, tiny brewery at our Rehoboth Beach brewpub back in 1995) and our most approachable beer. Shelter Pale Ale is brewed with a premium barley and northwestern Willamette & Columbus hops. The beer has a fine malt backbone and a slightly nutty flavor. Shelter Pale Ale is a versatile, quaffable beer.

We named this beer 'Shelter Pale Ale' because we liked the concept of a shelter as being a place you come home to. It made sense for this beer, our original beer.

Shelter Pale Ale is brewed all year long, but it is distributed exclusively in the Mid-Atlantic region of the United States. You can usually find our Shelter Pale Ale on tap at Dogfish Head Brewings & Eats in downtown Rehoboth Beach, Delaware and other great beer stores in our neck of the woods.
