Hop-pickleMADE BY BROOKLYN BRINE IN BROOKLYN, NEW YORK
The pickle genius that is Brooklyn Brine has come together with Dogfish Head Craft Brewery for a leap of taste – the Hop-pickle.
Dogfish Head owner Sam Calagione recalls his 'aha' moment: "I was sitting there having a 60 Minute IPA and some Brooklyn Brine pickles while reading the newspaper. When I tried them together, that earthy bitterness that both share was magnified. I thought it was perfect, and within a week, I called Brooklyn Brine." Brooklyn Brine's Shamus Jones was IN.
The cucumbers are sliced in Shamus' Brooklyn kitchen into chunky cross-sections then brined in an apple cider vinegar with IPA (india pale ale), sweet caramelized onions (to offset the bitterness of beer), peppercorns, smoked paprika, and a little bourbon. Cheers!

Don't worry, these are safe to feed to your kids – brine is heated to 200 degrees so the alcohol burns off.
