Tru-Action 16 oz. 4-pack Can Release & Trillium Mini Merch Pop-Up @ Off-Centered EmPOURium: Saturday at 12 p.m. (320 Rehoboth Ave., Rehoboth, DE 19971)
Brewed in collaboration with Trillium, Tru-Action is a continually dry-hopped IPA that gets its name from a fermentation process called bio-transformation, or daily hop dosing on the cold side from start to finish. Clocking in at 6.5% ABV, Tru-Action will be available on draft and in 16 oz. 4-pack cans to-go for $18 each starting at 12 p.m. In addition to some Tru-Action, beer lovers can pick up an array of merch from Trillium’s on-site, pop-up shop.** Not to mention, the first 50 folks through the door will get a free Dogfish Head x Trillium poster! Sadly, Dogfish is not permitted to sell Trillium beers to-go at the pop-up.**
Trillium’s version of Tru-Action will be available on draft throughout the weekend at both Dogfish Head Brewings & Eats and the Milton Tasting Room & Kitchen.
Fireside Chat with Founders of Dogfish Head & Trillium at Dogfish Head Craft Brewery: Saturday at 3 p.m.
(6 Cannery Village Center, Milton, DE 19968)
The Milton Tasting Room & Kitchen will host a Fireside Chat on the grassy knoll later that afternoon, starting at 3 p.m. Folks can grab a Trillium draft beer and take a seat under the tent for a chat featuring Sam Calagione and Jean-Claude Tetreault. They will be discussing all things Dogfish Head, Trillium, how the Tru-Action collaboration came to be and taking questions from the audience. This one’s outside, so attendees may want to layer up!
