Walk With Wildness Bottled Cocktail & Personal Care Products
Dogfish Head and Juniper Ridge have joined forces to fuse their distinct yet complementary artisanal distilling approaches to craft Walk With Wildness, a ready-to-drink bottled whiskey cocktail, as well as a full lineup of personal care products – a cologne, a room spray and an incense – boasting the same name. Each of the collaborative products provides a different interpretation of a shared set of parameters; each was made using the same ingredients and distilling technique to create a totally unique experience.
The scratch-made ready-to-drink bottled whiskey cocktail artfully blends the best of natural ingredients from both coasts by combining Dogfish Head’s Delaware-made spirits and California-foraged herbs from Juniper Ridge. Dogfish Head’s Hull & Helm Whiskey is rested on Delmarva beach plums, infused with White Sage Mint Tea and rounded off with a touch of sweet cherry juice. Walk with Wildness (32.5% ABV), the cocktail, is best enjoyed over ice or neat to truly feel the forest and taste the coast. Available at Analog-A-Go-Go for sampling and in bottles to-go at Dogfish Head’s Milton Tasting Room & Kitchen, while supplies last.
The Walk With Wildness lineup of personal care products embraces the fusion of Dogfish Head’s Delaware-made spirits and California botanicals. Using a Let’s Get Lost whiskey barrel from Dogfish Head that also aged its Mellowdious Gin, Juniper Ridge distilled the barrel wood to release its essence and then amped up the aroma with their own blend of botanicals, creating a scent that perfectly captures the essence of both coasts.
For those unable to attend the festival, the complete Walk With Wildness personal care product line will be available for purchase online at juniperridge.com and dogfish.com. Additionally, Dogfish Head enthusiasts can find a limited supply of Walk With Wildness Cologne at the brewery’s coastal Delaware locations, while supplies last.
Developing Artist Collaboration Installation
At this year’s Analog-A-Go-Go, Dogfish Head is also celebrating the fourth and final installment of its 2023 Benevolence Beer Series, brewed in partnership with theDeveloping Artist Collaboration (DAC), a local non-profit that provides artists with career development, peer connection, and physical spaces to build elevated creative lifestyles. DAC will showcase an art installation made of beer cans, each individually decorated by members of the local community. The beer itself, Creative Juices (5.8% ABV), is a fruited kettle sour brewed with pomegranate, green tea, ginseng and ginger, and folks attending Analog-A-Go-Go can expect to see it as one of the many samples available at the festival.
Live Music Lineup
While the main event is taking place at Dogfish Head’s Milton Tasting Room & Kitchen on Saturday, Nov. 18, the Analog-A-Go-Go festivities will happen all weekend long with a rockin’ lineup of live music spanning the brewery’s Delaware locations.
