Dogfish Head and Woolrich Team Up for Pennsylvania Tuxedo

In Pennsylvania, the family-run heritage clothing label Woolrich is so ubiquitous that they teamed up with Dogfish Head Craft Brewed Ales for a collaboration that also doubles as a nod to the uniform they conceived. Called Pennsylvania Tuxedo, the spruce-infused ale “pays homage to the flannel-suited hunters and gatherers who dwell deep in the back country of north central Pennsylvania.”

The ale, which was brewed with the help of the Woolrich, has, according to Dogfish Head Craft Brewed Ales, “a grassy citrus kick complemented by the resinous conifer notes of fresh green spruce tips.” Dogfish went into the forests of north-central Pennsylvania and Georgetown, Delaware to pick the fresh tips themselves. The ale has a “dry, yet doughy malt backbone [that] lets the hops and spruce shine while still balancing out the bitterness.”

Similar to a pinot gris, the beer pairs great with smoked salmon, smoked meats, wild game and big crusty breads. If you want to drink it while eating cheese, go for a Jarlesberg or sharp cheddar.

So next time you put on your Woolrich flannels, grab a six pack of the Woolrich and Dogfish Head Craft Brewed Ales Pennsylvania Tuxedo. You’ll feel as if you were in the forests of Pennsylvania hunting. Or you can just get a bottle and imagine you were in the deep woods of Pennsylvania wearing your Woolrich flannel suit ready to find your prey.

Level up your drinks: These amazing spirits belong on every bar cart
What did we enjoy this year? Thanks for asking. Here are our favorite spirits of 2022
An assortment of liquor bottles on shelves

It's that time of year again: Awards season. As 2022 comes to a close, it's time to recognize the top performers, shakers and movers, and most inventive voices in all the land. For the world of drinks in particular, it has been a wondrous year.
Maybe it was the nature of 2022, or perhaps the lessons we learned from the trying previous two years. Whatever the reason, the drinks business really flexed its muscles this year — not in terms of dramatic volumes or over-the-top options (although there were certainly those), but in terms of top-quality options that reflect exactly what we want in our glasses right now.

It's been quite a year for agave spirits and gin especially. The former had a record-breaking year in terms of sales, and the latter really embraced terroir, shapeshifting into a spirit that can go toe-to-toe with the best of 'em, even just neat in the glass. Oh, and whiskey got a new category. We can't wait to taste more of these as they come online and name the best of 2023.

best foods to spice up your sex life 4218833447 12f494da7b o

Food and sex have long been connected, in both obvious and subtle ways. Many foods just feel sexy, like champagne, strawberries, and chocolate. Then there are the foods that are supposed to get us in the mood — aphrodisiac foods, if you will. The most famous example, of course, is oysters. But have you ever stopped to ask yourself why aphrodisiacs exist? The truth is wildly unsexy and scientific.

Our bodies are made to function in certain ways. Nourishing ourselves with a healthy assortment of vitamins and minerals helps different parts of our bodies thrive in every way. If we aren't getting enough of any certain nutrient, our bodies can fail us with fatigue, soreness, apathy, illness, or any number of annoying hindrances. Our body's sexual mechanics are no exception. In order to keep all the proper juices flowing, so to speak, we must be sure we're nurturing our sexual health with the vitamins and minerals it needs with the best foods for sex. Oysters, for example, are very high in zinc, a mineral that gets the blood flowing exactly where it needs to go when it comes time for a little lovin'.
