While the new Dogfish Head Brewings & Eats has been open for a few weeks now, we couldn't pass up the opportunity to host a slew of Grand Opening events! Join us on Friday, June 2 as we raise a glass to this next chapter. Between live music, a new concoction from Dogfish Head Distilling Co. and lots of yummy food, this is going to be one epic way to kick things off!

See you there!

Sonic Archeology Tasting 
Friday, June 2 at 5:00pm
Have you heard about Sonic Archeology?! A prohibition-era cocktail artifact, Sonic Archeology blends distinct Dogfish Head spirits of whiskey, rum and apple brandy, with real lime and pomegranate juices to create a totally original drinking experience that is best enjoyed over ice.

Along with our Grand Opening of our new Rehoboth brewpub, we'll also have Sonic Archeology available for tastings beginning at 5 p.m.! Give it a try and let us know what you think of this throwback concoction, and enter to WIN a pair of VIP tickets to Firefly! The winner will be announced at 7pm.
