The Boston Food Swap is pleased to announce that the guys of the Dasagaffel Brew Club will be sampling a custom-made creation at the September Swap!
The brew is a medium-bodied IPA with a good balance of hop bite and sweetness. It's not overly hoppy and the added sweetness will sit well with those who don't consider themselves to be hop-heads.
We will have the full explanation of a "gaffel" at the swap, but what you need to know now is that four Cantabrigians have taken it upon themselves to keep alive the legacy of the gaffel, choosing beer as the appropriate vehicle to do so. Ian Ganley, David Graham, and brothers Mike and Peter Paul Payack named their brew club after the catchphrase of their youth, “That’s a gaffel,” changing the spelling to slightly disguise it and give it the ring of an old European beer.
Today, Dasagaffel Brew Club (it was either that or The Cambridge Gaffel Historical Society) strives to carry the torch, letting the red-handed flame of the gaffel burn well into the twenty-first century and beyond. The Dasagaffel Man in the logo still wears the characteristic red mark on the back of his hand that so many knuckle-headed Cantabrigians could be seen sporting in the 80’s and 90’s.
Aside from their love of gaffels, the members of Dasagaffel share a deep love of well-crafted beer and have been crafting their own (well) in Cambridge since 2008.
