Hard to believe it's been six years (today!) since the Steampunk Treehouse joined us here in Milton, Delaware!

It was on this day, June 23, 1995 that Dogfish Head became Dogfish Head! Twenty-one years ago we opened the doors to Dogfish Head Brewings & Eats and we've been cranking out off-centered ales for off-centered people ever since. A big thanks to everyone who has joined the journey...cheers!

Bière de Provence is bursting with flavor! Inspired by the fields of Provence, you'll find lavender, bay leaf, marjoram and chervil, making for a complex - yet refreshing - brew. Available now, check out the Fish Finder at dogfish.com to find some near you! #craftbeer

Our Signature Glass is a custom piece created by us to work in tandem with some of our more intense beers. Complete with a Dogfish logo laser-etched on the bottom of the inside of the glass, you'll notice a gorgeous tiny stream of bubbles throughout the life of your beer. Perfect for 120 Minute, World Wide Stout and even Burton Baton, the Signature Glass will quickly become your go-to imbibing vessel! #ProperGlassware

This Strawberry Basil Collins is going to be one of your favorite new drinks - Analog Vodka, strawberry syrup, fresh lemon juice and basil leaves. But! What really tops it off is a splash of our Tweason'ale. It's as refreshing as it sounds...we promise! Find it at #ChesapeakeAndMaine or make it at home. #exploregoodness

We're brewing up an honest to goodness IPA with a bounty of real citrus, including the flesh of these lemons. Flesh & Blood, as we're lovingly calling it, will release later this month...so stay tuned for more details. 🍋 #craftbeer

Brand new IPA rolling off the bottling line today ... Flesh & Blood! Brewed with orange peel, lemon flesh and blood orange juice, Flesh & Blood has a zesty fruitiness and subtle dry tartness. All we can say is ... yum! Starts shipping on 6/27 so look for it on taps and shelves just in time for the Fourth of July weekend! #craftbeer

Each day we plate samples of beer on selective media to detect any contaminants that may be present – bacteria, wild yeast or even mold. These contaminants could potentially cause off flavors or aromas, and we can’t have that! To ensure that all is well, each of our different beers get tested at least five times throughout the fermentation process and packaging. This particular plate is a positive control, helping to make sure everything is in order! #beergeekery

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!
