Patagonia Partners with Dogfish Head for an Adventure-Ready Pilsner Beer

In April 2020, during the early stages of the pandemic, Patagonia—a brand known for its outdoor clothing and gear—reached over into a new industry entirely: food. Patagonia Provisions was born, and with it, a slew of new products that’s grown to include venison links, turmeric breadfruit crackers, and even beer. Yes, beer. In 2016, the company released its Long Root line of ales, which includes Long Root IPA, Long Root Wit, and Long Root Pale Ale. But now, Patagonia has doubled down for a new sudsy product, with some beer experts in tow.

Partnering with Delaware’s own microbrewery-turned-national phenomenon, Dogfish Head, the climate-conscious Patagonia Provisions is releasing its newest beer, Kernza Pils, a refreshing, German-style pilsner made with organic ingredients including barley, hops, and, of course, Kernza. The Contessa hops help the beer establish its floral notes and subtle spiciness., while the Kernza grain possesses a nutty, buttery flavor that comes to light here as well.

Speaking of Kernza, it’s a revolutionary new American-sourced, wheat-like grain that’s grown as a sustainable crop and can help reduce greenhouse gasses. As a bonus, the grain also happens to be higher in protein and fiber than other types of wheat. The roots of this perennial grain, which was developed at The Land Institute in Salina, Kansas, can grow up to 12-feet in length and draw down carbon from the atmosphere to store in the soil, thus restoring and improving the health of the soil itself.

Over the last 20 years, Dogfish Head Brewery has shown tremendous growth, as it’s now recognized all over the country as one of the premier brewpubs. Kernza Pils by Patagonia Provisions and Dogfish Head Brewery can now be found in six-pack varieties and on tap in 15 states across the country.
