By Life and Limb

DogFish Head and Sierra Nevada announced a collaboration that will result in two new beers. Limb & Life will be a draft only brew available in October. Life & Limb will be released in 24 ounce bottles this November. According to the Dogfish announcement both brews are dedicated to "the family of beer drinkers and enthusiasts worldwide who continue to support the little guys, iconoclasts, entrepreneurs, and pioneers who risk life and limb to shape the vibrant craft-brewing community."

Life & Limb will be 10 percent ABV and feature maple syrup grown on the Caglione family farm in Massachusetts and barley grown on the Grossman farm in Chico, CA. It will include birch syrup from Alaska and a yeast blended from both brew houses. The brewers describe it as "a sipper" where as Limb & Life is a 5 percent session brew featuring the residual sugar of the first brew.
