Dogfish Head Theobroma ( Milton, DE )

Theobroma is a celebration of chocolate, the food of the gods. This Ancient Ale is based on chemical analysis of pottery fragments found in Honduras that revealed the earliest known alcoholic chocolate drink used by early civilizations to toast special occasions. The discovery of this beverage pushed back the earliest use of cocoa for human consumption more than 500 years to 1,200 B.C. As per the analysis, Dogfish Head's Theobroma (translated into "food of the gods") is brewed with Aztec cocoa powder and cocoa nibs (from our friends at Askinosie Chocolate), honey, chilies and annatto (fragrant tree seeds). It's light in color, not what you expect from your typical chocolate beer (not that you'd be surpised that we'd do something unexpected with this beer!). This beer is part of our Ancient Ales series -- along with Midas Touch, Chateau Jiahu, Sah'tea and Ta Henket -- so step back in time and enjoy some Theobroma. $132.99 + Tax. 

Dogfish Head Craft Brewery
Dogfish Head Brewings & Eats opened as Delaware’s first brewpub opened in June 1995 in the resort community of Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. It was the smallest commercial brewery in America, with a 12-gallon brewery capacity. Ten months after opening, this was expanded into a piecemeal 300-gallon brewery and a thirty-fold expansion of the brew house.
