The sixth annual Dogfish West Coast Intergalactic Bocce Tournament was a whole lot of fun. This year we held the tournament in San Diego and mother nature complied with perfect sunny breezy weather. The teams all brought their A game and dressed to the nines.
More great happenings through the end of May! As we continue to ship more beer than in the history of Dogfish Head we continue to break benchmarks. After shipments closed for the month of May we officially crossed the 50,000 bbls mark.
We're hosting the 2nd annual Delaware Restaurant Association's Beer, Bocce & BBQ here at the Milton brewery this afternoon. It's a benefit for the Delaware Restaurant Association and the winning team wins a cash prize to be donated to their non-profit of choice!
Teo (Baladin Brewery, Turin, Italy), Leo (Birra del Borgo, Rome, Italy), and I hosted a lunch on the new rooftop brewpub Birreria at Eataly NYC today. My favorite pairing was the blood sausage with cask conditioned Eataly brown ale.
New brew day on the roof here at the Eataly NYC Birreria. Teo, Leo , and I perused the Eataly store aisles this morning. An ingredient-inspiration walk about. We've decided to do a 7% abv amber ale with ugli fruit, fresh grated Ginger, and Two kinds of Italian honey.
So last night was the super-double- secret opening of Birreria, the rooftop brewery at Eataly NYC. My brew-buddies Leo and Teo flew in from Rome and Turin respectively. We met on the rooftop and the first thing we celebrated was Teo's prescient design prowess.
