Inspired by an a-ha moment, Dogfish Head Craft Brewery and Brooklyn Brine have collaborated on a first-of-its-kind culinary leap of taste: the Hop-Pickle. The all-natural, earthy Hop-Pickle is made with Dogfish Head 60 Minute IPA, caramelized onions and Cascade hops and is packaged by hand in Brooklyn Brine's small artisanal kitchen. "One day last fall, I was sitting there having a 60 Minute and some Brooklyn Brine pickles while reading the newspaper," says Dogfish Head President and Founder Sam Calagione. "When I tried them together, that earthy bitterness that both share was magnified. I thought it was perfect, and within a week, I called Brooklyn Brine."
Brooklyn Brine combines the bounty of local, organic produce with NYC's vibrant energy and unbridled creativity. Each hand-packed jar is filled with bold flavors, organically sourced ingredients, and the love and attention you only get with small, seasonal batches. Plus, with each jar of delicious pickles comes the extra gift of the intensely flavored brine. Use it just like vinegar to splash on salads ro beans such as lentils, or to marinate meat or tofu.
