Sam Calagione

Sam Calagione has been focused on brewing beers with culinary ingredients outside the Reinheitsgebot since 1995 when he first opened Dogfish Head as the smallest American craft brewery. Today, Dogfish has grown into a 300+ person company and is one of the most recognized breweries in the country. Dogfish Head is based in Delaware with Dogfish Head Brewings & Eats, an off-centered brewpub and distillery, Chesapeake & Maine, a geographically enamored seafood restaurant, Dogfish Inn, a harbor-front beer-themed motel and Dogfish Head Craft Brewery, a production brewery and distillery featuring a tasting room and food truck.  Dogfish currently sells beer in 37 states and Washington D.C. and spirits in the mid-Atlantic region. Sam’s innovative style and collaborative spirit has earned him a reputation as one of the industry’s most adventurous entrepreneurs and brewers. Sam has authored four books and was named the James Beard Foundation’s Outstanding Wine, Spirits, or Beer Professional in 2017.  Sam, his wife Mariah (Dogfish VP) and their family reside in coastal Delaware.
