You've been training for the Dogfish Dash, right? We hope so, because the last Sunday in September is right around the corner. This year's Dash sold out in minutes, and we're looking forward to hosting 1,850 runners at our ...

Is it a sandwich or is it a beer? Stewed Beer, this month's installment in the year-long Province Ale Company project, was brewed with pale and wheat malts, English hops, English yeast, crushed mustard seed and … lean beef.

Yup, beef was added to the kettle during the boil. Stewed Beer is malty, it's hoppy, and it's got a tinge of something unique. This isn't your everyday, average beer.

This month's dish is a bit different, too: tacos de lengua. That's braised beef tongue with pickled cabbage, avocado, tomatoes and cilantro gastrique. Come and get it!

This strange brew will be tapped this Saturday at Dogfish Head Brewings & Eats in Rehoboth Beach. And don't worry if you missed last month's beer. We held back a keg so members and newcomers can catch up and join the run of antique ales.

They're friends now, but Alison Schrader remembers years ago when she and a visiting brewer got off on the wrong foot.

"We were chatting in the brewhouse," says Alison, Dogfish Head's one-woman distilling team, "and as we were wrapping things up, he says, 'Alright, sweetie.' I raised my eyebrows and shot him this look that said, 'Did you really just call me that?' His demeanor changed pretty quickly."

Run-ins like that are rare these days, Alison says, and although men still outnumber women on the production side of most breweries, more and more women are staking a claim in brewhouses, distilleries and laboratories.

"The gender bias from the '70s and '80s doesn't exist anymore," says Dogfish Head Quality Control Manager Rebecca Newman. "There are more women in brewing school than previous years, and women are coming from other fields like biotech and manufacturing and bringing some really incredible favors to the party."

We had a small, contained spill of a cleaning chemical at the Milton brewery today.

The good news is that there were no injuries, the situation is under control, and we’ve already begun cleanup.

Today Milton brewer Liz, Brewmaster Tim, Ben (our Brewpub brewer) and I are brewing Piercing Pils. We don't do many lagers at Dogfish. And we don't do too many straightforward Reinheitsgebot brews. 

Don't worry, this is a lager, but it ain't so traditional ...  or is it?
