About Dogfish Head
In June 1995, the story of Dogfish Head began with the opening of Dogfish Head Brewings & Eats on the Avenue in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. Not only was Dogfish Head Delaware’s first brewpub, it was the smallest commercial brewery in America. The reputation of Dogfish Head ales quickly grew beyond Delaware's borders. Calls from Philadelphia, Washington D.C. and beyond poured in, as thirsty restaurant patrons demanded their favorite beach beer at home. In 1996, Dogfish Head began bottling its Shelter Pale Ale and just 1 year later - expanded again! In a couple of years, Dogfish Head outgrew its distributing brewery and moved to Milton, Delaware in the summer of 2002. If you haven’t had the chance to taste Dogfish Head... find a beer, track down one of their spirits – or visit one of their restaurants! You will see why international beer writer Michael Jackson calls Dogfish Head "America's most interesting and adventurous small brewery."
