When two breweries as successful as Dogfish Head and Samuel Adams collide, you know there’s sure to be a bright flash and a clap of Thunder.  Thunder Burger, of course.  Terrible puns aside, there’s some real news here.

On Tuesday, November 8th, Dogfish and Samuel Adams will be presenting a collaborative beer dinner at Thunder Burger & Bar in the heart of Georgetown.  Expect the creativity to soar (along with some of the ABV percentages) as these two craft brewing heavyweights match their combined sudsy prowess against the impressive menu on display.

From Dogfish Head’s elusive 120 Minute IPA to Sam Adams’ Vixen Chocolate Chili Bock, the beers at this event should hold intrigue for even the most seasoned imbiber.  The two breweries will also be pouring some of their last bottles of SAVOR Flowers, the unique herb ale that Sam Calagione and Jim Koch brewed together for SAVOR 2011 that includes rosewater as well as jasmine, hibiscus and lavender flowers.  If that wasn’t enough, Dogfish Head will be bringing along some of their spirits, some of the brewery’s first forays into the stronger stuff.

The menu is equally impressive and, if the beer wasn’t reason enough, contains both pork belly and jerk chicken.  If you don’t feel the radiating happiness from those words, you’re out of luck.  Check out the rest of the menu below.
