It would seem a simple thing: two breweries go head-to-head, pouring glasses of the sexy, the specialty, the sudsy, for interested – if pretend – beer connoisseurs. Two enter, one leaves victorious. Such was the scenario on April 7th, when The Post Brewing Company’s brewmaster, Nick Tedeschi, faced off with famed craft brewer, Dogfish Head.
Dogfish Head Brewery is based in Milton, Delaware, founded by Sam Calagione. It opened in 1995. All of this means absolutely nothing, except to say that the brewmaster at Dogfish Head is Bryan Selders, the same Bryan Selders who used to be the brewmaster at The Post and was, in fact, Nick Tedeschi’s mentor. The drama, the intrigue, the absolute madness…
Ok, enough of the dramatics. On an absolutely gorgeous night, inside the warm, wood walled, and cozy Post Brewery in Boulder, dozens gathered for a night of dueling brews paired with some truly amazing plates from The Post’s kitchen.
So let’s talk conclusions. All the beers were terrific, and as testament to that, the battle ended in a tie. The Post Brewing Company won in what can only be described as an epic final chugging battle between Tedeschi and Selders.
