You ask, Sam answers … Where's Saison du BUFF? Debut beer at SAVOR? Periscoping??? And, a West Coast brewery? This is #AskDogfish  .

When the 120th day of the year and #TBT   fall on the same day, it’s time to crack open the 120 Minute from 2003. #20offcenteredyears

It’s not uncommon for kegs to be a sticky mess when they return to the brewery. The “Tunnel of Love” ensures that our customers get their kegs of Dogfish beer in good condition. It’s a pretty simple operation: Inside the tunnel, a series of nozzles sprays the exterior of the kegs with 180-degree water. This line can clean and fill about 70 kegs per hour. #beergeekery

I got a bunch of 120 that I'm sitting on.  Usually, when it's available, I'll pick up two bottles.  One for now, one for later.

Sometimes, if we can't find Sam for an hour or two, we know he's snuck off to the wood room for some alone time with Palo Santo.

(Thanks to Joe Lamberti of the Daily Times for the photo!)

Sure, yet when I hide in a room with Palo Santo at work I'm told I have "a problem" or need "an intervention." (And fantastic photo!)

Playing around with some michelada recipes today. For this one, we started with a mix of Old Bay and celery salt on the rim of a Shaker pint. Fill with ice, then add 3 oz. of Namaste, 2 crushed limes and 4 oz. of bloody mary mix. Go wild with the garnishes. ‪#‎cincodemayo‬ never tasted so good!

I live near Rehoboth and people around here put frigging Old Bay on everything. It is tiresome. It is some nonsense they do for the tourist trade I suppose.

GIMME GIMME GIMME. My all time favorite stout right here, by my favorite brewery. Wish +Dogfish Head Craft Brewery would come to the MI brewers guild in Ypsilanti.

Dried organic orange slices, fresh-cut lemongrass and a bit of coriander … a witbier bursting with good karma. Namaste.

#TBT  to the late '90’s and one of our first tap handles. There were only about 20 of these made and after they kept disappearing, we thought we’d never see them again. Thankfully, one awesome gent dropped off this gem! Phew! While we’re not sure just when we’ll see Shelter Pale Ale again, we’re happy this big fish is back! #20offcenteredyears

On the 20th of each month, we're turning back the clock and reflecting on 20 off-centered years here at Dogfish. ... This time, Sam recounts his journey to Delaware. Spoiler alert ... there's a girl involved! #20offcenteredyears

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!
