Has Anyone Tried Dogfish Head / Sierra Nevada Life & Limb?
« on: January 25, 2010, 02:55:55 PM »
My wife is from Delaware, and we had the pleasure of attending a tasting at Dogfish Head in Milton, DE a few months back. Talk about some creative beers! I'll bring home a four pack every now and again when I am in the mood for something different.

I've seen a few small blurbs related to a collaboration ale made by Dogfish Head and Sierra Nevada ("Life & Limb"), and it sounds like an interesting thing to bring home (if I can find a six pack of it in the Detroit area). Has anyone tried it, and if so, what did you think?

I have had it on draft, and it was big and complex.  The bottled version is primed with with the Birch Syrup.

It was only sold in 750's.  Hard to find now in MI.

Thanks! I'll have to keep my eyes open for it. Holiday Market in Royal Oak has a great beer selection... I'll check their stock to see if they have a bottle of it!

I've been on the lookout for it. The local beer and wine stores don't carry it. I will have to take a ride down to Sam's restaurant and get it.  ;)

Okay, so the local beer merchant looked into this, and it seems that this beer was made in only one batch back in November. It is apparently all gone, except for one guy selling it for way too much on eBay. Oh well; maybe Sam will do a follow up next fall. Good luck getting your hands on a pint down in Rehobeth Beach, Bluesman! If there isn't any left there, it's not anywhere!

I tried it and wasn't all that impressed.    Certainly not worth all the hooplah

You could still get some Life and Limb in Salt Lake City last weekend. Not sure about this weekend though. It was good but not something I would buy again at that price.
