Adam from Hair of the Dog Brewing


By: Hair of the Dog Brewing

Product Description: A rich, dark and hearty old-world style ale. Adam sets the standard for high alcohol beers and has become a classic among craft beer aficionados. It's rated a near perfect score by the Beer Advocate Brothers (99 of 100) and an impeccable 100 points on Rate Beer.

Like most Hair of the Dog beers, bottles of Adam are sold mainly on the west coast, causing beer shoppers in the Midwest and East coast to stock up on bottles whenever they get a chance. Definitely a beer that's best suited for sipping from a wide-mouthed, deep glass.

More from the brewer

10% ABV Our first beer. Dark and rich with notes of chocolate, leather and smoke.

Adam is a recreation of a historic beer style. Originally made in Dortmunder, Germany, it was the first beer I produced when I opened Hair of the Dog. Rich in flavor, Adam is best served as a dessert beer. It is great with chocolate or cigars, or just a warm fire and good company. It has 10% alcohol by volume and 50 IBUs.

Warning: Beer of the month clubs and mass producers promise "craft" beer…deliver less-than-stellar drinking experience.

Sadly, it's true…
98% of breweries in America are now labeled as "craft beer" producers, a term that's quickly losing its meaning. But most are still hiding dull, lifeless beer behind clever names and fancy labels.
