Brewed with cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, star anise, house-toasted walnut flour, and kiln coffee malt, the “OK, Boomer” beer has earthy and spicy notes, according to the Dogfish website.
The brew is supposed to evoke the spirit of the story of Old Man Winter, with a Gen Z twist on “out with the old, in with the new.” Unlike the divisive nature of the meme, the beer is intended to bring people together with their elders, rather than shame an older generation specifically.
Ingredient-wise, the brew was also inspired by northern California walnuts, which is where the walnut flour was sourced from. The spice flavors also include cumin from Afghanistan and paprika from Spain.
“We be like, “OK, Boomer … Happy Holidays…” reads the beer’s description.
