Mark Sarfarik, Dogfish Head’s Brewmaster, provided us with all the juicy details about this beer. “Burton Baton is a 10% ABV imperial IPA that is a blend of 90 Minute IPA with an English old ale that is aged in our 10,000-gallon (380-hL) oak foeders. Since most people don’t have the ability to wood-age beers at home, this recipe is more of a composite of the two threads.”
