Pickles + beer

Picture this – Philadelphia-brined pickles meet Delaware-brewed beer to create one deliciously refreshing, taste bud-tantalizing treat … can it get much better? Dogfish Head has collaborated with Philadelphia’s Brine Street Picklery to create limited-edition, beer-infused, bread and butter pickles. These pickle chips are brined in session sour SeaQuench Ale with sea salt, coriander and black limes. Available in select Giant stores in Pennsylvania while supplies last, they are hitting shelves now, just in time for the spring and summer grilling seasons.
