Some may not know that the Dogfish Head Brewery in Delaware has ties to Maine. The name Dogfish Head in fact came from the area of Maine that Sam Calagione, Dogfish Head’s Founder and President spent summers as a kid.
On July 1st, 2014, Sam Calagione and his son Sammy will be arriving in Dogfish Head, Maine via 19 foot Boston Whaler. Sam will then be hosting a multi-course beer dinner in Portland, Maine at In’finiti Fermentation & Distillation.
The beer dinner at In’finiti will be the fifth and final beer dinner in a series that travels up the Atlantic coast starting in Lewes, Delaware on June 23rd dubbed “A Moveable Feast”. The trip is in celebration of the newly opened Dogfish Inn and will be raising money and awareness for The Nature Conservancy. Dogfish Head will donate $2,000 to The Nature Conservancy for each stop along the trip. The trip also includes stops along the way that allow Sam and Sammy to enjoy some of the Coastal properties that are protected by The Nature Conservancy.
The Beer dinner in Portland on July 1st will feature a variety of Dogfish Head beers including Festina Peche, Bitches Brew, Rosabi and the debut of Pennsylvania Tuxedo a collaboration brew from Dogfish Head and Woolrich Inc. In’finiti brews may also have some special brews on tap for the event. Each guest at the dinner will also receive a Dogfish Head pint glass, Dogfish/Woolrich wool koozie and a visor from Boston Whaler. Tickets for this limited seat event are $90 and you will want to call in to In’finiti to reserve them 207-221-8889 this event is expected to sell out.
In addition, on July 12, 2014 the crew at Novare Res Bier Café will be kicking off their annual Dogfish Head takeover event with over 30 Dogfish beers on tap. There will be special “Randalized” beers; cellar aged offerings and even a few new off centered ales to try. Dogfish Head sausages and pickles are slated to be on the menu as a compliment to the beers. Live music by Mosart212, this is definitely an event worth checking out; Novare knows how to put it down.
