We sent this greeting card out into the world when we first released Aprihop in 2004. Inside it reads, ‘Dearest customer, Thank you for trying me. You have excellent taste. Love always, Aprihop.’ We meant it then and we mean it now … you have excellent taste and Aprihop loves you. #tbt #20offcenteredyears

We need your help! +BeerAdvocate recently paid us a visit for our annual Extreme Beer Fest brew day. Through the laughter and stories of past EBF encounters, we actually found time to brew. What we didn't find time for was a name ... that's where you come in. Help us name our 2015 EBF brews and not only will you get bragging rights, you'll walk away with some pretty sweet BA and DFH swag. Submission details at the link below! #craftbeer

Thanks to the crew over at +TechCrunch for this take you their virtual brewery tour (sorry, no virtual samples at the end)!
Beer is my favorite food. That means I was especially excited to be able to visit the Dogfish Head Brewery in Milton, DE, a palace dedicated to the production..

More snow for us today in coastal Delaware!
We'll get the Rehoboth Beach brewpub open by 5pm.
The Milton brewery Tasting Room will be closed today, so no tours.

We recently had the pleasure of touring Vendome Copper & Brass Works, a 4th-generation custom metal fabricator in Louisville, Ky. They’re the folks behind our brand-new copper stills, and as a fellow family-owned company dedicated to their craft, an enormous inspiration. When our new spirits line rolls out (end of summer, fingers crossed!), the very first glass will be raised to these guys. #dogfishspirits

Meet the OG organoleptic hop transducer module … aka Randall the Enamel Animal. Where does the name come from? Well, it makes beer so hoppy it'll strip the enamel off of your teeth. Originally developed to beat our West Coast brethren in a hop-centric beer showdown, this instantaneous beer infuser started flavor-enhancing back in 2002. #TBT #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!
