Who says public service announcements can't be fun? Take a spin through this fun little anti-drinking-and-driving PSA-ish thing we shot here at Dogfish Head. It features Dogfish Founder and President Sam Calagione and actor Ken Marino, who recently had a season-long arc on "Eastbound & Down" and has starred in "Party Down," "Burning Love" and the Adult Swim series "Childrens Hospital."

We love mixing our peanut butter with the chocolate of artists who share our off-centered outlook. We've worked with painters, illustrators, designers, musicians, metalworkers and woodcarvers, but our latest project is a first. We asked Chicago native Ken Ellis to help us celebrate our diverse lineup of IPAs with one of his signature quilts. That's right, quilts.

It's hop-buying season here at Dogfish Head. As most of us are just settling in to 2014, brewmaster Tim Hawn already has his mind on the 2015 brew schedule and the ingredients he'll need to make it happen. The hops won't be harvested until fall, but if he waited until then to place the order, we'd be out of luck.

Dogfish 2014 seasonal artist Jermaine Rogers finds freedom in the weird

Jermaine Rogers never thought his art would take him very far, and for a while he was alright with that.

Jermaine Rogers never thought his art would take him very far, and for a while he was alright with that.

He was happy enough collecting a check from the Houston planetarium and drawing little flyers for bands on the side. It was the early '90s, and music was changing. The Seattle sound was making its way to Texas, and Jermaine dug it. Club owners hired him to help promote up-and-comers like Soundgarden and The Melvins when they passed through town.

Sure, when he was younger, filling sketchbooks with Optimus Prime and coveting freshly sharpened pencils the way other kids coveted new toys, he dreamed of drawing for a living. But his teachers and other well-meaning adults had shut the door on that dream. The flyers and 'zine covers kept him in touch with his creativity. Besides, he'd get tickets to the shows, maybe 50 bucks, and the chance to be part of something.

"I had no illusions that it would become anything huge," he says. "It was just something that I wanted to do."

Then Jermaine saw a poster by the artist Frank Kozik, and it was the beginning of what you might call his come-to-Jesus moment.

Get your Namaste on year-round

Namaste, a Belgian-style white beer bursting with good karma, is making the leap from occasional release in a champagne-size bottles to year-round offering in 12-oz. 6-packs.

Namaste, a Belgian-style white beer bursting with good karma, is making the leap from occasional release in a champagne-size bottles to year-round offering in 12-oz. 6-packs. The new packaging, coming at you in 2014, will be available in all of the states where Dogfish Head is sold.

"From the day we opened in 1995, the average beer we've brewed has been 9% ABV," says Dogfish Head Founder and President Sam Calagione. "We love going big, but we also hear the calls for a more sessionable off-centered ale. We hope you'll agree that Namaste is a great year-round quencher and food beer."

Traditional FL!P Ale – with a Batali twist – celebrates new Eataly Chicago

If you bellied up to a bar in 18th-century America on a winter’s eve, chances are the colonists on either side of you would be nursing a warm, spicy flip.

If you bellied up to a bar in 18th-century America on a winter’s eve, chances are the colonists on either side of you would be nursing a warm, spicy flip. The eggnog-type beer cocktail repeatedly appeared in the journals of the Founding Fathers and was a near constant on the expense accounts of George Washington.

But like powdered wigs and hoop skirts, flips fell out of fashion. Until now.

Here at Dogfish Head, we often look to the past for inspiration, and on Friday, Nov. 22, we’re releasing the first beer ever brewed specifically to make a flip beer cocktail. Why? We’re celebrating the grand opening of Eataly Chicago, the latest U.S. location of the epic artisanal Italian food emporium run by the Farinetti family, the Saper family, Mario Batali and Joe Bastianich.
