Some mornings, all you want to do is drink beer for breakfast, as the Replacements once mused. Thanks to Dogfish Head’s latest endeavor, we can do just that. Behold: Beer for Breakfast Stout.
The beer goes beyond a traditional coffee stout with the addition of pork scrapple, leftover bits from pig butchery that are chopped, boiled, spiced, formed into loaves, sliced and fried as a breakfast meat. Fatherly reports that the Delaware brewery used a low-fat scrapple from a local company that specializes in the porky loaves. A regular-fat scrapple would have messed with the brewing process and offered a less foamy head. The 7.4 percent ABV brew was also brewed with coffee, maple syrup, chicory and oats and is now available in stores.
