American Beauty is back! This Imperial Pale Ale inspired by the Grateful Dead captures the spirit of years of touring & recording. Available at the brewery and brewpub today, it’ll start popping up on taps and shelves over the coming weeks. The limited edition t-shirt is available now at dogfish.com. Holly, Tour Room Supervisor (and Deadhead), is excited … how about you? #grateful50

#TBT  to 2003 when we first released Festina Lente, a very tart neo-lambic ale that goes through both a yeast and bacteria fermentation. So tart, that our distributors originally thought something was wrong with it and sent it back. While it’s no longer in production, it pops up from time to time at our Rehoboth brewpub and various events. #longlivesours   #20offcenteredyears

Sam is in the pub's experimental brewhouse today. “Here I am with Dogfish Brewmaster Tim Hawn as we try teas of different herbs to dial in the ratios for a peppery Biere de Garde. I'm wearing a shout-out shirt to my friends at the fine Oxbow Brewing Company in Maine as a high-five for American Craft Beer Week. Cheers!" (p.s. The Biere de Garde will go on tap at the pub in about 3 weeks!)

Story

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!
