Exploring New Waters

Head Brewer, pain reliavah, and all round good pal Bryan Selders will be departing from Dogfish Head in mid-March. We're sad to see him go. Bryan has brought so much passion, talent, and creativity to dogfish in the nine years he has been part of our company.

When Life Gives You Lemons...

A few months back we did an experimental batch of a big hoppy dry IPA we called DFH Ale. We've sold it in and around our immediate home turf and we've all loved that beer (and so did many of you judging from the emails).

Don't Cry Over Spilt 120

We hope folks enjoyed tonight's episode of 'Brewmasters.' Theres no use crying over spilt 120 Minute IPA. The last production batch had to be dumped because it wasnt up to our high standards so we knew it wouldnt be up to the standards of many hardcore beer lovers.

Beer-ing With Us

So, the good news is that the tests we have been running to dial in the 120 Minute IPA recipe are showing great progress! A couple weeks ago we sat down over three different vintages of 120 to gauge the way the beer is aging.
