Weekend of Compelling Ales And Whatnot

Weekend of Compelling Ales & Spirits Canceled

Due to growing concerns surrounding COVID-19, we’ve made the difficult decision to cancel our upcoming Weekend of Compelling Ales & Spirits. The health and safety of our visitors, co-workers and community is our top priority. As one of our favorite weekends of the year, please know that we’re working as hard as we can to find a future date when we can welcome off-centered fans to coastal Delaware.

If you’ve already purchased your ticket, all General Admission, VIP and INN ticketholders will receive a refund from Ticketleap for the full purchase price. Please give us 24 hours to issue your refund and expect to see it hit your account within 2-3 business days.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause in your travel plans. We wish we could celebrate with you, and we appreciate your understanding and willingness to work with us through this process.

In addition to canceling the Weekend of Compelling Ales & Spirits, we have decided to close our offices, tour centers and tap rooms for a week, starting Friday, March 13 out of an abundance of caution. We are continuing to stay very close to the guidelines provided by local, state and federal organizations to ensure the safety and comfort of all. Please keep an eye on our website and social media channels for any further updates.

If you have any issues with your refund or have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to info@dogfish.com or 302-684-1000, Monday - Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. If you're trying to reach us outside of those hours, we'll get back to you ASAP.
