Default Dogfish Head - Rare Brews?

I just found out Dogfish Head makes a bunch of rare beers like Pangaea (brewed with ingredients from all continents) and Chateau Jiahu (9,000 year old recipe). Any idea where I can get these? Has anyone tried them?

My local deli carries both, but that's not much help to you. If you do find it, be prepared to spend some coin. I believe Pangaea and Jiahu(and Theobroma) were $25each for a wine bottle size

Even at higher prices? I think Dogfish is fine, but is starting to get over-rated now. I mean "Pangaea" seems like a great marketing ploy (you could claim one really pedistrian ingredient is from one continent then another). It's not like they put in 100 exotic ingredients from all over the world into "Pangea".

Whether or not you like beers like Pangea, I suspect that DFH loses money on them so at least the cost is justified by the expense of production (if not the utility).

The upside for them is that every time they release one of these they get an article written about them in a magazine or paper which generally has wide higher income readership. This is genius.

I'm not sure they lose money on their limited beers: A: the production costs are minimal compared to the costs of mantaining a large distribution for their regular ales, and B: there's a more limited distribution, so less distribution fees. But their ROI might be less, as manufacturers know that you get more unit sales for something that's inexpensive vs something that's more expensive.

Anyways, when it comes to a monetary value on beer, I'm probably more cynical because I like my beer the best and it's cheaper per pint
