It’s hard to say what day a company is born, but this is the closest thing to a birth certificate we’ve got! While we didn’t open our doors until June of '95, March 24, 1995 is the day Dogfish Head became Dogfish Head (insert small tear here). Birthday celebrations are in order, so stay tuned for some off-centered fun this summer! #20offcenteredyears   #tbt

Dogfish Head Craft Brewery is a microbrewery 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. 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!

On the 20th of each month, we're turning back the clock and reflecting on 20 off-centered years here at Dogfish. ... This time, find out why Sam is "really proud to have been offensive for 20 years."

That’s one happy beer scientist! Sean is all smiles because of the brand-spanking new gas chromatograph that just landed in our lab. In a nutshell, this contraption heats samples of beer, then analyzes the gas (mmm … beer gas). We’re using it to detect diacetyl, which can give beer — particularly IPAs – undesirable notes of butter or butterscotch. ‪#‎beergeekery‬

Black & Blue, our blackberry-blueberry Belgian-style ale, is back in the Tasting Room and at our coastal Delaware brewpub today. It's also headed to taps and shelves in states where Dogfish is sold. Watch for it over the next couple of weeks, or come here to celebrate with us! http://goo.gl/OUARxR

Any craft lager fans out there? “I don’t suppose most craft beer fans are too excited by lager styles,” says a New York Times writer. “But as a beer-drinking baseball fan, I find these are exactly the sort of brews I want at the ballpark.” If you’re one of those lager lovers, keep an eye out … you might be able to snag the last of our winter seasonal Piercing Pils!
In time for spring training, the beer panel rates 20 American lagers.

You may recognize this ‘little man pee’ as a famous landmark sculpture found in Brussels, Belgium. Well, meet the Dogfish Head Manneken-Pis. Gifted from a friend while building our 100-barrel brewhouse in 2003 (maybe 2004), this little guy is our homage to continued creative brewing. Dang!   #20offcenteredyears   #tbt

Found this late-night message from Sam in our inbox this morning: "Only three-ish days until EBF Boston. Prepping the sign with a marker in one hand and an Aprihop in the other."

Calling all Dogfish Dashers! Registration for the 8K race (yes, it's a single 8K race this year!) will go live at noon April 1. We're also offering a special package deal with the Dogfish Inn. The Dash has been known to sell out in mere minutes, so if you're interested, be ready!
We’re celebrating a very special Dogfish Dash this year by smooshing the 5K and the 10K races together and holding a single 8K race.

Really great read on the history of craft beer label design. #craftbeer   #art  
We asked brewers, artists, experts and designers at Brooklyn Brewery, Evil Twin, Maine Beer Company, Ommegang and more about craft beer label design.

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!
