Early Father’s Day gift alert!

The ticket price of $45 per person includes tax and gratuity and Morton’s will donate $5 from every ticket to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

The Dogfish Head selections to be featured at Morton’s “Hoppy Hour” will include:
– Midas Touch – a Turkish recipe for the oldest known fermented beverage in the world.
– Raison – As complex as a fine red wine, this Belgian style Ale is brewed with beet sugars and raisins and would pair best with a Morton’s steak.
– 90 Minute –Dubbed the “Best IPA in America” by Esquire Magazine.
– Palo – The caramel and vanilla notes in this aged brown ale are derived from handcrafted wooden brewing vessels made of Paraguayan Palo Santo or “Holy Tree” wood.
