A few years ago, craft breweries tasked themselves with creating beers with big flavor that would appeal to health-conscious consumers. Dogfish Head, known for brewing outside the box, was one such brewery up for the challenge. Of course, this wasn’t DFH’s first venture in the better-for-you category. The beloved craft brewery proved they could make a beer that would fit into a healthy lifestyle with the 2016 release of SeaQuench Ale (now one of the best-selling sour beers in America). After months of molecular-level research and culinary exploration, Slightly Mighty was born at just 95 calories, 3.6g carbs and 0g fat, with a sessionable 4% ABV.
 
A ground-breaking IPA, Slightly Mighty is everything you want in a low-calorie beer: slight in calories and carbs yet mighty in taste. It has quickly become the best-selling beer in the low-cal IPA category, a new category created in response to the increasing consumer demand for wellness-focused alcoholic beverages.
 
Called a “legitimate IPA both [beer] geeks and average folks will dig” by Esquire, the secret to the exceptional taste of Slightly Mighty was found in an ancient Chinese delicacy – monk fruit. Dogfish Head founder Sam Calagione explains, “Sweeter than sugar per ounce, monk fruit amplifies the body and complexity of the beer yet contains no calories. The result is a hazy-gold, lo-cal IPA that throws tropical notes of pineapple, coconut, mango and citrus, all while delivering an aromatic hoppiness that makes it oh-so drinkable. Brewed with ‘lo-cal’ly grown malted barley, Slightly Mighty is dynamic and crisp with a refreshing hop profile.”
