Our People

Print this PageSend to friend

There are almost 200 of us now.... So lots of people all work together make Dogfish Head a huge success. Here's a little bit about a few of us ... to meet more, come for a visit!

Sam Calagione | Dogfish Head Founder & President

Sam Calagione is the founder and President of Dogfish Head. Sam got the brewing bug back in the early 1990s while working at a bar in NYC that featured microbrewed beer. After a number of homebrew batches, Sam put his English degree to the test while writing the brewpub business plan. Sam is the brainchild behind all the wacky things that happen at Dogfish Head. He's often on the road promoting Dogfish Head through beer, song, dance and words!

Mariah Calagione | Dogfish Head Vice President

Mariah is more the right-side of the brain inside the workings of Dogfish - she is also Sam's wife. After supporting her husband with an actual paycheck for the first few Dogfish years, Mariah came on board fully in 1997. Mariah works with our  marketing, web, merchandise, tour and community teams.

Nick Benz | Chief Executive Officer

Nick is the Chief Executive Officer at Dogfish (geez, that sounds kinda official huh?!). He works with all our co-workers on a day-to-day basis to make sure things are moving in the right (meaning slightly off-centered) direction.

Cindy Dunson | Human Resources

Cindy is the lady to know if you are looking to become part of the team Dogfish Head. Cindy is our HR Director. She is always looking for fantastic, fun, hard-working folks to join our slightly off-centered team of co-workers. Whether you are looking for opportunities at our Rehoboth Beach brewpub/distillery or the Milton, DE brewery, she's involved!

Neal Stewart | Marketing Director

A beer-industry veteran, Neal is the man behind our marketing plan. He leads our creative team, merch madness and special events.

Ryan Schwamberger | GM of Rehoboth Brewpub

Ryan is the General Manager at the Rehoboth Beach brewpub/distillery. Ryan and the great team at the pub are there to provide an off-centered, tasty time when you come by and visit.

If you need to contact any one of the above folks (or anyone else here for that matter!), please shoot an e-mail to: info@dogfish.com and indicate where it should be forwarded. Cheers.
