Sam Calagione named 2017 Outstanding Wine, Spirits, or Beer Professional at the James Beard Awards!
Excuse us while we share our pride and congrats to Dogfish Head founder and CEO Sam Calagione for being named the 2017 Outstanding Wine, Spirits, or Beer Professional at the James Beard Awards last night!
After Sam's seven consecutive nominations, as well as our new seafood restaurant Chesapeake & Maine being nominated as a semi-finalist this year, we're so excited to be bringing this one home for all of Delaware and our co-workers.
“It’s a tremendous honor to receive this nod from our peers as we celebrate our 22nd year in business at Dogfish Head,” says Calagione. “I celebrate this award with my wife and business partner, Mariah, and our 200-plus co-workers who work hard to make our off-centered company tick,” says Sam. “We’re also humbled and excited that James Beard recognized our innovative, culinary inspired bar program as it combines our love for our two favorite maritime regions into one delicious restaurant concept.”
Congrats again, Sam and cheers!
