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.

In Rehoboth today with the Alstrom brothers brewing our Extreme Beer Fest 2014 beer.  Actually, this year we are brewing two beers that are related to each other...much like the brothers ;-).

Towards the end of 2013, we asked “Could your nonprofit use $4,000?” We asked qualifying nonprofits to submit a short video for a chance to win a $3,000 grant and a shot at another $1,000 for our first-ever Beer & Benevolence awards.

Shareholders will be able to pick up their prized Province Ale Company journals, as well as their parting gifts: a Province Ale Company T-shirt and vintage-style cap!

We’re happy to share that beer is on the way to our first few wholesalers in the state of Wisconsin! Yesterday, Sam waved goodbye to the first truck to head to the state in more than two years.

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."

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.
