New this year ... we're teaming up with our adventurous friends at Velo Amis to bring you a whole new Dogfish Head experience on two wheels! Introducing ... the Dogfish Head I.P.A.! A gran fondo style bicycling tour of southern Delaware, rides will start and finish at our Milton brewery with distances of 60 KM, 90 KM, and 120 KM (see what we did there?).
Registration opens Wednesday, May 16 at noon, as well as our route reveal!
*Our EARLY BIRD REGISTRATION FEE is $75 and it will last for 1 MONTH ONLY! The registration fee will increase to $100 on 6/15/18 at 12:01am (EST). The registration fee will then increase to $125 for Day of Registration.*
Your entry includes not only a sweet bike route, but also an event water bottle, event cycling socks, tasty post-ride grub, live music, and two Dogfish Head craft beers (for riders over 21 only). Our Milton brewery tasting room will be open after the event, so that means NO OUTSIDE ALCOHOL of any kind at the event!
Remember, this is not a race. Enjoy a gran fondo style ride taking in the history and culture of southern Delaware with your friends, family and perhaps new friends you meet along the way!
Registration is limited to 1,500 riders. The first 200 registered riders will receive a cool Dogfish Head cycling cap!
Funds raised during the event will go toward bicycle safety programs across the state of Delaware via Sussex Cyclists and the Urban Bike Project. For the Urban Bike Project portion of our donation, we are partnering with PLEDGEREG - an online fundraising tool. Each rider will be given a link to their personal PLEDGEREG fundraising page. You may also partner with others to create fundrasing teams. While riders are encouraged to fundraise for this event, it's certainly not a requirement for participation!
The routes are mostly flat and almost entirely on rural roads, however the 120 KM route may include a small section of trail and includes a ferry crossing of the Nanticoke River. The course will be well-marked and aid stations will be well-stocked, but ultimately you are responsible for your ride, so please be sure to download maps and cue sheets (these will be available once online registration closes)!
Want to get involved without riding? We're looking for volunteers! Volunteers will receive a free volunteer shirt, food and drink and lots of LOVE! Stay tuned for additional information on volunteering!
Please visit the Dogfish Head I.P.A. Facebook Event Page for up-to-date information from us and our friends at Velo Amis!

The second beer out of our ‘Wooden … it be nice!’ wild beer program, we’re releasing 1,500 (375ml) bottles of Wet Hop American Summer – a wild ale dry-hopped with wet Citra hops – at our Milton Tasting Room & Kitchen on Saturday, November 10 at 11 a.m.
To create Wet Hop American Summer, we started with a rustic Farmhouse base ale. After it spent more than a year in Chardonnay barrels, it was racked onto a hand-picked selection of unprocessed, freshly-harvested, whole leaf Citra hops that were still wet from the field.
Dry, highly-carbonated and chock full of intensely earthy flavors and fragrances, and zealous aromas of Brett funk, Wet Hop American Summer clocks in at 7.75% ABV. Hand-bottled – cork and cage style – and hand-painted with a special stripe signifying its uniquely-crafted touch, it’s priced at just $10 per bottle.

Friday, November 16 – Rehoboth brewpub
The indie pop solo project of singer-songwriter Michelle Zauner, Japanese Breakfast has mastered the craft of veiling melancholy in full, celebratory shimmer. Psychopomp – her debut record in 2016 – confronts the death of her mother with equal parts breezy shoegaze and existential meditations. Diving deeper into the human psyche, her latest effort – Soft Sounds From Another Planet – explores themes like outer space and artificial intelligence.
No cover. Show starts at 10 p.m.

Trappist with special guests the Pain Relievaz and DJ @jimshreds
After you've gotten your fill of all-things craft, head on down to our Rehoboth brewpub. The night's triple feature of live music begins with a special performance by the Pain Relievaz. The most influential, beer-geek, hip-hop group of our generation, this Dogfish Head duo – featuring founder & CEO Sam Calagione and Brewing Ambassador Bryan Selders – is sure to rock the stage.
Following the Pain Relievaz, DJ @jimshreds takes the stage as we prepare for the main act ... Trappist!
Formed in 2014, Trappist has one mission – to annihilate listeners with a storm of d-beat, crust punk, power violence and hardcore, all in the name of BEER. Made up of a trio of scene legends – Chris Dodge (bass, vocals and brewing), Phil Vera (guitars, vocals and fermentation) and Ryan Harkins (drums, vocals and bottling) – this group is known for its chaotic, booze-induced sounds.
No cover. Shows starts at 10 p.m.
