Wayback Wednesday: Back in 1995, as Sam Calagione was poised to open Dogfish Head Brewing & Eats in Rehoboth Beach, Del., he got some bad news: Brewpubs were illegal in Delaware. Sam drafted a bill to change that and defended it on the floor of the General Assembly. Just in time for the busy summer season, Gov. Tom Carper (seen below with Sam) signed the legislation. ... If you're in the area today, drop by the pub and celebrate that milestone with a snifter of Olde School Barleywine from '09. Cheers!
