New Retro Lager Celebrates Wes Anderson’s New Film (Milton, DE) – Dogfish Head Craft Brewery’s newest release celebrates Wes Anderson’s latest star-studded film, Asteroid City” which takes place in a fictional American desert town circa 1955 that is spectacularly disrupted by world-changing events.
Inspired by the movie’s rich and layered take on the typical science fiction flick, Dogfish Head Asteroid City Lager is a 5.3% ABV “Earthly” twist on a classic retro lager’s unassuming and refreshing nature. And like Wes Anderson’s movie this beer doesn’t take itself too seriously either.
“The magical, whimsical worlds Wes Anderson has created in his movies have been touchstones for our off-centered brand throughout the years,” said Dogfish Head Brewer & Founder, Sam Calagione. “From the playful and colorful design of our canal-front hotel, the Dogfish INN, to the vibrant and refreshing vibes of this Asteroid City Lager beer, Wes’ work inspires us, and this collaborative beer is a liquid celebration of this new frontier Wes and the entire team behind ‘Asteroid City’ have created.”
