About Dogfish Head
When Sam Calagione opened Dogfish Head in 1995 it was the smallest commercial brewery in America making 10 gallons of beer at a time.  Today Dogfish Head is among the fastest growing breweries in the country.  Dogfish Head has focused on brewing stronger, more exotic beers since the day it opened as the motto “Off-centered ales for off-centered people” attests to.

Dogfish Head has grown into a 94 person company with a restaurant/brewery/distillery at the original site in Rehoboth and a 103,000 sq foot, 97,000 bbl capacity regional brewery in Milton Delaware. In the last year alone Sam Calagione and Dogfish Head have been featured in Rolling stone, Men’s Journal, Real Simple, Playboy, the New York Times, The History Channel, The Wall St. Journal, Everyday with Rachel Ray, and The Reno 911 to name a few.
