I was looking forward to the event truly for two reasons only: the opportunity at long last to sample Dogfish Head's 75 Minute IPA and, with any luck, to procure this illustrious brew pictured at right. The aforementioned 75 Minute IPA is available only in cask form and its release is intermittent throughout the year. The lack of bottling coupled with the random release schedule made this difficult-to-obtain brew something I desired highly to add to my list. When I saw that the 75 Minute IPA would be included as one of the featured beers, I bought the tickets to the Analog-A-Go-Go immediately. Shortly thereafter, Dogfish Head announced that they had successfully brewed their coveted 120 Minute IPA AND that it would be going on sale at the brewery and brewpub on June 24th. Knowing that I would be there only a day later gave me butterflies; this, after years of waiting and searching, would finally be my opportunity to obtain a bottle (or more, if I was lucky) of the renowned Imperial / Double American India Pale Ale.
