Thanks to +Inc. for paying the #dogfishinn  a visit!
Founder Sam Calagione realized his most of Dogfish Head's brewery visitors were out-of-towners and staying overnight. The rundown local motel he renovated just opened its doors.

It would be pretty un-American of us to not acknowledge our buddies on the U.S. National Team as they square off against Belgium today … right? From James Brown to Tom Petty to the Violent Femmes, here's a playlist of get-you-psyched-for-World-Cup-soccer-like-it's-no-one's-business tracks. I believe that we will rock out! #ibelievethatwewillwin #spotify

The guys did a great job and we need to remember that they were in one of the toughest groups and made it to the knock out stage.  They made me proud...I am psyched to see how good we will be 4 years from now.

Again, awesome to see you are safe and rolling spreading the good word.  My father and I would sit out in the middle of the Bay after setting some nets for the night and just listen to what the world had to say.  You and your son are living that now and it is something that you will always remember.  Cheers to the two of you.

Our founder Sam and his son Sammy set off from Lewes, Del., today on the first leg of a journey that will end in Dogfish Head, Maine. Sam will be hosting beer dinners along the way, and they'll be checking in with a series of video travelogues. It's an epic adventure, a fundraiser for +The Nature Conservancy, a celebration of the natural world, and a coming-of-age father/son journey. In short, it's a #moveablefeast ! Follow along here and at!

Sam and Sammy have one leg of the #moveablefeast under their belts. They had a fun paddle around a Nature Conservancy property (and only dropped one cell phone in the ocean so far!). Thanks to everyone who came out to Scales Grill and Deck Bar last night. Next stop: New York City!

Disappointed the list was full at Birreria! Oh well, awesome stuff!

Love this take on pairing Rosabi and the music of Julianna Barwick. ... "I found the whole experience to be soothing — and somehow fancier — than what I usually associate with drinking beer. Being prompted to listen closely really did lead to reflection." #craftbeer   #music  
Dogfish Head has collaborated on yet another music-inspired beer, this one with artist Julianna Barwick.

So you came down to Sussex County did you? I live about 5 minutes from the Dogfish brewery myself. You have to watch those cops up in Milton, they really have nothing better to do than lay in wait for when tourists leave the brewery. I don't even speed down Federal street sober and I have a DE plate on my car. I can't wait until the Route 30 interchange gets finished. I hate traveling up Route 5. Once that happens I'll see the brewery a lot less than I do now.

Off-centered ales for off-centered people.
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!
