Red Owl Tavern and Dock Street Brewery Team Up To Brew “Red Awl IPA” Exclusive to Red Owl Tavern
Old City’s Red Owl Tavern and West Philadelphia’s Dock Street Brewery have partnered on a new, collaborative beer – Red Awl IPA – that will be served exclusively at Red Owl Tavern.
“We entered this process throwing around a lot of ideas and weren’t sure what the final product would look like,” said Kyle Darrow, head bartender at Red Owl Tavern. “We discussed a Pale Ale or IPA that could be described as all too drinkable – and Dock Street nailed it with the Red Awl.”
The Red Awl’s official description is as follows:
- Red Awl IPA
- 6.4% ABV, 52 IBU
- A medium bodied Red IPA. Spicy and citrusy American hops are balanced perfectly by pleasant notes of caramel malt. Brewed exclusively for the Red Owl Tavern.
“We know this Red Awl has enough caramel sweetness and spicy, citrusy American hop character to entice and summon beer drinkers,” said Marilyn Candeloro, VP Dock Street Brewery. “It’s a bright beer with a burnt orange color that is dazzling.”
Dock Street’s collaboration with one of Philadelphia’s premier dining establishments is nothing new.
“Back in 2012, we partnered with the Four Seasons for a Beer Four All Seasons collaboration which included one of our all time favorites, Truffled Old Ale, which was barrel aged with black winter truffles,” said Candeloro. “More recently, we were proud to work with Garces Trading Company to create the Olde Dock Street Oyster Stout brewed with Cape May Salts Oysters, which can be found on tap at the Olde Bar and a few other Garces Trading Company spots.”
The Red Awl IPA is now on tap at Red Owl Tavern.
