Tickets are now on sale for the second annual Analog-A-Go-Go, our cask-beer fest/craft fair/vinyl pow-wow!
Analog, going down June 23 at Dogfish Head's Milton brewery, includes an amazingly tasty lineup of cask ales from Dogfish and guest brewer Victory Brewing of Downingtown, Pa. We'll also be tapping kegs of our Music Series: Bitches Brew, Hellhound, Faithfull and Positive Contact.
For lovers of live music, there will be two incredible shows at our nearby Rehoboth Beach brewpub. On Friday night, The Fleshtones with Steve Wynn and The Miracle 3 will be playing. The show starts at 10 and will be first-come, first serve. Entry is limited.
At 10 p.m. Saturday, Appalachian post-punk solipsist Bonnie Prince Billy will be playing the brewpub. Due to advance interest, this is a ticketed show. Only 100 tickets – at $10 each – will be sold. (Details here.)
As part of this year's celebration, guest brewer Bill Covaleski of Victory Brewing and Sam Calagione of Dogfish Head collaborated on a limited-edition Analog-A-Go-Go 2012 poster. Pick one up, get it signed and know you're supporting local nonprofits.
Record shops including Other Music and Rainbow Records and several vinyl collectors will be at the brewery to sell, swap and barter, and there will be barbeque from Bethany Blues, as well as some other culinary delights – including vegetarian dishes – from nearby cafés.
And let's not forget the eclectic collection of artisans dropping by again: Grain Surfboards from York Beach, Maine, Sid Vintage clothing from Northampton, Mass., and Heidi Lowe and her handcrafted jewelry from Rehoboth Beach. New folks this year include Glass Thorpedo, an artist using reclaimed glass to make brew-inspired jewelry, and Brian Kolakowski, a fine woodworker from the Philly area.
So, you want to go-go? Tickets are $10, and include a keepsake mini English pint glass, a beer log (guiding you to 10 tasty brews), a chance to win a case of Positive Contact, treehouse tours, brewery tours and a solid good time. (Please note, this does not include the Bonnie Prince Billy show at the pub on Saturday night.)
It’s going to be groovy. Hope to see you there!
