This June, Dogfish Head Craft Brewery will release Rosabi, a well-hopped Imperial Pale Ale brewed with musician Julianna Barwick. Each case of six 750ml bottles will be packaged with a 10-inch record of four original songs that Julianna composed using sounds from Dogfish Head’s expanded brewery.

Analog-A-Go-Go is back and better than ever! Our annual vinyl swap and cask beer fest is going down June 13-14 at both our brewery and brewpub in coastal Delaware. At the top of the bill is Bob Mould, best know as the singer, songwriter and guitarist for the ‘80s rock band Hüsker Dü. Mould, who NPR calls "one of the great heros of American indie rock,” will be playing a free show Friday night at our Rehoboth Beach pub.

Here at Dogfish head, we’re known for brewing with nontraditional ingredients like figs, pears, brown sugar and grapes. Since we opened in 1995, we’ve mined the entire culinary landscape for beers, but there’s one ingredient that anchors everything we do: water.

Since last summer, when we announced that Dogfish was headed back to the four states we pulled out of in 2011, we’ve been grateful for all of the anticipation, kind words and patience from the craft beer community.

It's Aprihop season, and to celebrate the old in-like-a-lion, we've compiled some tracks to accompany the days when the sun finally comes out to stay. When it brings on the warmth, makes everything feel right and tempts us to just be out in it.

While a good amount of hop flavor and aroma comes from additions in the brewhouse, no other method rivals dry-hopping in its ability to deliver high levels of fresh hoppiness. Dry-hopping is adding hops to beer after it’s been fermented. This allows the very volatile essential oils of the hop to be absorbed into the beer without subjecting them to the violent environments of boiling wort or vigorous fermentation, both of which drive the most delicate and desirable compounds out of town. Listen in as our brewer Shane pulls back the curtain and dishes the nitty-gritty on Me So Hoppy:

Let's take a quick trip back to the late '90s. ... While heating water one day to prepare for a brew at our Rehoboth Beach brewpub, Dogfish Head founder Sam Calagione caught a cooking segment on the TV above the bar. The chef was describing his method of adding small pinches of fresh cracked pepper to his soup in equal increments the entire time the soup boiled, rather than in one large handful in the middle of the process. The chef said this method would bring more complexity and evenness to the spice of the dishes than if he added the whole volume of pepper all at once.

Welcome to our listening room. This is where, on a monthly basis (at least), we will be sharing a glimpse into what we're listening to (good music mostly) and what we're thinking about (beer mostly) in the form of a Spotify playlist. This series of lovingly curated mix tapes takes inspiration from what's happening around the brewery and pairs those stories with tracks that sound good together (mostly).

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.
