Delaware’s 25-year-old Dogfish Head Craft Brewery joins forces with Belgium’s 200-year-old Brouwerij RODENBACH to release Vibrant P’Ocean—4.7% ABV blended sour ale.
A beer for the history books, Vibrant P’Ocean is RODENBACH’s first-ever collaborative brew.
“As America’s number-one brewer of sour beers, we at Dogfish are absolutely honored to be the first to collaborate and create a beer in partnership with RODENBACH, the world’s most well-respected maker of sour beers.”
– Sam Calagione, founder of Dogfish Head
Vibrant P’Ocean is a complex, ruby-colored beer with tart, dry flavors of jammy berries and floral lemon. To create this trans-oceanic potion, the breweries carefully combined two unique base beers—one developed by RODENBACH and the other by Dogfish Head.
Vibrant P’Ocean will be available nationwide in 6 pack/12 oz. cans starting in late January. The breweries are also exploring a future, limited release of Vibrant P’Ocean that will be available in Belgium.

Brewed in West Flanders region of Belgium since 1821, BROUWERIJ RODENBACH is arguably the most awarded brewery in the world, the leading craft brewer of oak-aged mixed-fermentation ale and revered by beer drinkers, globally. The beer is aged among the brewery’s 294 oak casks (“foeders”) for a minimum of 2 years, before master brewer Rudi Ghequire expertly crafts a perfectly balanced and refreshing beer that pairs exceptionally well with food. First gaining international acclaim at the 1894 World’s Fair in Antwerp, RODENBACH has gone on to win Gold medals from the most reputable critics and publications in the world including World’s Best Sour Beer (2018, World Beer Awards).
