A few weeks ago I had the great pleasure of attending the Draft Magazine Microbrew Festival at Turf Paradise. It was a fairly great time marred by one great disappointment. I ran into Louis Dolgoff, Arizona's Dogfish Head sales manager who explained to me that he was in possession of Sah'tea, a new brew infused with chai tea and juniper berries.
Tastes: There is magic in this bottle. Dogfish Head has used rye and juniper berries in the brew process. To heat the wort they used wood-fired rocks. Rocks! At the end of the boiling process black chai tea is added to give it a spiciness that lingers with each sip.
