Dogfish Head Has no Plans for Cans

The past year has seen a proliferation of excellent beers available in cans, which offer many benefits to the consumer and to the environment.  But one thing cans don’t offer is the elegance of a bottle, and that’s at the heart of why Dogfish Head has no plans to can their beers.

Dogfish Head Images Are a Little Bit Eerie and Totally Awesome

Every once in a while you see something that makes you take pause and go “wow – this is something new.”  That’s what I did when I saw these uncanny animated gif loops. They feature craft beer folk hero Sam Calagione brewing up a batch of a new strawberry beer which Dogfish Head is prototyping […]

TheStreet.com Announces Top 10 Beer Vacation Destinations, Loses Me after Number 2…

TheStreet.com released their Top 10 craft beer vacation destinations earlier this morning, and while some are slam dunks, others are head scratchers. Sure visiting Stone and Dogfish Head make sense (they have beaches!), but Pottsville, PA?  Also, The state of Wisconsin gets a nod, but Colorado is left out in the cold?! Wisconsin is a […]

Brew Dog’s Viagra Beer for the Royal Wedding Makes Me Feel Like a Beer Snob

Unable to turn down an opportunity to do something “outlandish” for attention, Brew Dog has created something special for the upcoming royal wedding.  It’s a 7.5% ABV beer containing Viagra, chocolate and horny goat weed called Royal Virility Performance.  Ugh. The beer will be available for purchase on Brew Dog’s website on April 29th (the […]

Was Brewmasters Killed by “Big Beer”?

If you recall, we were the ones who said definitively that the Discovery show Brewmasters was dead.  There were a lot of folks who said we were wrong, but we had it on good authority that the show was done. Now we have it on even better authority.

Dogfish Head Pull Out Of Four States: Goes All Oskar Bluesy…

Well it has happened again.  A major force in the craft beer movement has to pull out of states because demand is too high.  It happened to me personally when Oskar Blues announced last year their withdrawal from Idaho, and it has happened again today with Dogfish Head announcing they are pulling out of four states.  So […]

“Brew Masters” is Hitting its Stride

  Last week, I wondered if “Brew Masters,” the new Discovery show starring Dogfish Head’s Sam Calagione, would last. The first show was more infomercial than excitement, and the whole premise felt stale.  Still, I held out hope that the show would be much better once Sam started traveling around the world.  I am happy […]

Will “Brew Masters” Last?

Like many of you, I watched the premiere of Brew Masters last night with a craft beer in hand and a big smile on my face.  And like many of you, I enjoyed the show because I’m a fan of Sam and a major beer nerd.  Even if it was a bit of an infomercial, […]

Dogfish Head Fish Finder: FAIL!

FAIL!!  No Dogfish Head Brews within 100 miles of Boise, Idaho!  If you are going to have a feature like this on your website, you would think you would be in all urban areas.  Otherwise SHUT UP about your off centered crap!   EDIT BY JIM: Here’s what happens when you do the same for […]

What Bugs You About the World of Craft Beer and Small Batch Whiskey?

Don and I love craft beer and whiskey, enough to prattle on about it here every day.  But there are some things that get our respective goats when it comes to being beer and whiskey enthusiasts. For instance, it makes me crazy to go to the beer store only to hear about the awesome limited […]
