I'm in San Diego, a hop-loving city if there ever was one, for the Brewbound conference.  Last night Dogfish co-hosted the welcome session at the Museum of Man with our pals at Hopunion.

Our beer-dinner series is back, and with a new chef, new dishes and new beers, this promises to be our tastiest run yet.

"People come here to have fun, so I like to take them out of their comfort zone," says Dogfish Head's new Chef de Cuisine Brenton Wallace, a kitchen veteran and graduate of Johnson & Wales Culinary Arts School. "I also believe you should appreciate every single ingredient, and I try to encourage that by interacting and explaining how and why each dish is composed the way it is."

From October's Farm-to-Table Dinner to April's Small-Batch Special, the dinners are $65 per person, including gratuity. Seating starts at 6:30, and tickets and the food and beer selections will be available online three weeks before each event. Of course, the menu is subject to change based on availability and Chef Brenton's never-ending pursuit of awesomeness.

Who says bocce can’t make the world a better place? What started with a few Chicago food-industry friends looking to get together and enjoy some downtime has turned into the Wicker Park Bocce Club, which has transformed an unused urban lot into two bocce courts.

To celebrate the transformation and support the club, Dogfish Head Craft Brewery is bringing its Intergalactic Bocce Tournament to the Midwest for the first time. The tournament – similar to ones Dogfish holds on the East and West coasts – is expected to raise more than $1,000 for the club.

“Bocce is in our blood – or maybe I should say beer – here at Dogfish Head,” says Founder and President Sam Calagione. “What other sport can you play with a beer in your hand? We love the grassroots work Wicker Park Bocce Club is doing and jumped at the chance to show them some love.”

Science + beer = an amazingly off-centered field trip for adults.

Through the summer of 2014, Dogfish Head is sponsoring BEERology at the San Diego Museum of Man. BEERology explores the strange and interesting ways ancient Egyptians, Sumerians, Chinese and others perfected the craft of brewing.

Since 1999, Dogfish Head has followed their lead by working closely with Dr. Patrick McGovern, one of the world's leading experts in ancient beverages. With his help, we've unearthed ancient recipes from the Near East to the Far East, from Scandinavia to the Mediterranean, and from Africa to South America.

In the fall of 1994, Dogfish Head was just a twinkle in the eye of an ambitious homebrewer named Sam Calagione. Sam caught wind of a local cooking contest at Punkin Chunkin, at the time a tiny and raucous pumpkin-tossing contest for a handful of southern Delaware good ol' boys, and now a huge and raucus pumpkin-tossing contest with its own TV show.

Sam showed up with a full-bodied brown ale brewed with pumpkin meat and spices and entered alongside all the pies and cupcakes.

"The judges were all, 'Pumpkin in beer?'," says Sam. "And we were all 'Yup!', and they were all 'We love it. First place!' "

A legend was born, and we've been brewing Punkin every fall since.
