EventsCBC Events: Amber Waves: The Art of American Craft Beer

On Thursday, April 16, east coasters Dogfish Head Brewing and Victory Brewing are teaming up to bring one of more creative events I’ve seen to the Craft Brewers Conference (and that’s saying something). It’s an art exhibit: Amber Waves, The Art of American Craft Beer. Now in its third year, AMBER … Continue reading

BloggingPearl Jam anniversary beer (with Dogfish Head)

I like Pearl Jam and I like Dogfish Head, so I suppose at some point (given Dogfish’s recent musical tribute beers) this was inevitable: Faithfull Ale celebrates Pearl Jam milestone. Dogfish Head Craft Brewery is proud to announce the mid-October release of Faithfull Ale. Faithfull Ale is a celebration of … Continue reading

ReviewsPumpkin Beer Week: Dogfish Punkin Ale (2010)

Yes, I reviewed Dogfish Head’s Punkin Ale last year, and I couldn’t let a Pumpkin Beer Week go by without revisiting this beer again. This 7% beer is brewed with pumpkin, brown sugar, and spices, and is one of the pumpkin beers that reviewers and beer geeks always seem to … Continue reading

But I couldn’t help it: when I saw it on the shelf at the store, I had to pick up a bottle. Like yesterday’s Gose, this beer isn’t … Continue reading

ReviewsLife & Limb

Surely one of the most hyped, talked-about beers of the last month or so is Life & Limb, the first ever collaboration beer between Sierra Nevada Brewing and Dogfish Head Brewery: partly because there was a social media firestorm that buoyed in (largely sparked by the highly effective Dogfish Publicity … Continue reading

ReviewsDogfish Head Punkin Ale

It is definitely the season for pumpkin beers—hell, the Huffington Post is even running an article on them—and this year I finally got to try a pumpkin beer I’ve been waiting ages for: Dogfish Head’s Punkin Ale. No kidding; we’ve had some of the Dogfish “standbys” available in Oregon for … Continue reading

BloggingSierra Nevada and Dogfish Head collaboration

It may well be that “collaboration is the new IBU” in the beer world as noted by @jeffbearer on Twitter, but this is one brewer collaboration that’s worth getting excited about: Sierra Nevada teaming up with Dogfish Head to produce something, well, amazing: This fall independent craft brewers Sierra Nevada … Continue reading
