That's not beer you're seeing, it's foam from a recent scrubbing in the cellars! Ensuring the beer has a clean environment goes a long way for quality and consistency. It's the little things. #beergeekery

Brewed since '95 and aged on oak, Immort Ale has both sweet and earthy flavor characteristics thanks to the maple syrup, peat-smoked barley and vanilla. Back for the first time in 2 years, this complex brew is available on taps and shelves now! #craftbeer

Aged on oak for an entire year! This saison-esque collision of beer and wine has a spicy body with a dry, tart finish. Available now, check out the Fish Finder at dogfish.com to help you track down some Oak-aged Noble Rot! #craftbeer

Whole-leaf hops for our Whole Leaf Gin! Head Distiller Graham adds whole-leaf hops in each step of the distillation process, resulting in a gin that's bursting with hop goodness. Hops, hops, hops. #exploregoodness

Water from a beer tank ... that can't be right. Oh, but it is! When we don't have beers like Oak-aged Noble Rot, Immort Ale or Palo Santo Marron sitting in our wooden tanks we have to keep them full of water (with a little citric acid & potassium metabisulfate) to keep the wood swollen as well as to keep the tank free of any unwanted organisms. When we're ready, we drain the water, give it a final rinse with ozonated water and get back to brewing the good stuff! #beergeekery

The palo santo tanks should be full of beer for as much of the time as possible in my opinion. Yum!

Confirmed by a Piercing Pils - "No shadow to be cast, an early spring is my forecast!" Better stock up on this winter seasonal before it's too late! #groundhogday

Off-centered ales for off-centered people.
Introduction
Dogfish Head Brewery is a microbrewey based in Milton, Delaware. Dogfish first opened as a brewpub in downtown Rehoboth Beach, DE in June of 1995, then expanded to the Milton location in 2002 and is slated to sell 140,000 barrels of beer in 2011. The original Rehoboth Beach location has expanded to add a micro-distillery and is still open for lunch and dinner year round - come visit either location!

As a brewery, we brew off-centered ales for off-centered people. Our beers push the envelope of what beer is expected to be, often using non-standard ingredients, such as raisins, chicory, maple syrup, vanilla and grapes. We're also known for brewing beers with lots of hops. A handful of our beers are also aged in huge wooden tanks.  

Dogfish is also known for our Ancient Ales, brewed with the support of molecular archeologists from the University of Pennsylvania. These beers, with recipes based on residue discovered in ancient tombs include Midas Touch, Chateau Jiahu, Theobroma & more.

One of our most well-known lineup of beers is our India Pale Ales (IPAs), which are offered in a few varieties: 60 Minute, 90 Minute, 75 Minute and 120 Minute IPA. Their name of each of these beers refer to the length of the boil time of the wort in which the hops are continuously added. The longer hops are boiled, the more hop isomerization takes place, and the more bitterness is imparted to the beer. To further enhance the hop flavor of their 90 Minute IPA and 120 Minute IPA, we invented a filtering device called Randall the Enamel Animal, an "organoleptic hop transducer module" which "Randallizes" a beer by passing the beer through a large plastic tube filled with raw Cascade hops. The alcohol in the beer lifts oils off the raw hops and imparts even more hop flavor to beers that were already hoppy to begin with.

You may also know of Dogfish Head from three Dogfish Head Alehouses in Gaithersburg, Maryland and Falls Church and Fairfax, Virginia. These alehouses are licensed to restaurant partners based in the Washington DC area. Beer-paired food and vintage bottles of Dogfish's seasonal beers are available at their alehouses, as well as kegged offerings of their staple beers.

Our beers can be found in about 27 U.S. states, so find some and enjoy!
