Analog-A-Go-Go is a-go-go!

Friday, October 09, 2020

We are so excited to announce that our annual Analog-A-Go-Go festival is officially a go-go! A celebration of all things craft – from beers and spirits to music and art, 2020 marks the 10th anniversary of this iconic event, and while this year’s virtual edition will look different than those in years past, rest assured … we have some awesome plans up our sleeve!

“Who would’ve thought the 10th anniversary of Analog-A-Go-Go would be one of our most ‘digital’ events yet,” says Dogfish Head founder and brewer Sam Calagione, “I’m bummed we can’t get together in-person to celebrate this milestone occasion but am really happy we can share a couple of off-centered ales virtually while enjoying a whole slew of craft-centric goodness. So, mark your calendars now, folks, and we’ll see you there!”

Scheduled for Saturday, November 7, Analog-A-Go-Go will feature a lengthy lineup of virtual programming - keep scrolling for all the deets!

Live Chat with Collaborating Artist for Dogfish Head’s 2021 Off-Centered Art Series

Join Sam Calagione, as he sits down with Ryan Besch, the designer of this year’s Analog-A-Go-Go logo and our 2021 Off-Centered Art Series Artist! The duo will discuss Besch’s creative process, design aesthetic and how he has worked in tandem with our in-house team to conceptualize and bring to life the artwork for our Off-Centered Art Series ales. To tune in, visit our Instagram at 4 p.m. EST on  Saturday, November 7!

Livestreamed Musical Performance by Mt. Joy

A powerful, folk-rock quintet, Mt. Joy has been on the road, playing at venues (like our Rehoboth brewpub!) and festivals alike, since 2017. Best known for its startlingly honest music, Mt. Joy’s songs are an impressively honest portrayal of a young band facing the moment when dreams become reality and finding beauty in the exhilarating uncertainty of it all. To tune in, check out our Facebook, YouTube or Instagram at 8 p.m. EST on Saturday, November 7!

But that's not all! Just before the show, Sam Calagione will talk with Mt. Joy’s lead singer Matt Quinn! Listen in as they chat music and beer, and everything in between.

Virtual Vendor Fair

To further celebrate handcrafted treasures of all kinds, we are partnering with a slew of artisans from places both near and far. This mix of longtime Analog-A-Go-Go vendors, as well as some other new friends, includes Rainbow Records, Frank Norton Illustrations, East Aloha and many more. Keep an eye on our website or Instagram for more information about and links to participating vendors’ online shops!
