September 10, 2014 - Dogfish Head Will Add Distillery to its Production Brewery
Back in 2002, in a rural Delaware scrapyard, Dogfish Head founder Sam Calagione picked up a little stainless steel feed bin that he had big plans for.

Sam worked with engineers and welders to reshape the tank in the form of a pot still – lovingly named ‘Frankenstill’ – and Dogfish Head’s days of hand-distilling gin, rum and vodka began.

For a dozen years, Dogfish’s little “distillery that could,” perched on the second floor of our Rehoboth Beach brewpub, has been putting out an extremely limited selection of rum, vodka and gin. Most has been sold right out of the pub and at select retailers in Delaware. But now, after an expansion at our nearby Milton brewery, we will have the space to kick our distilling up a notch (or three).

“Dogfish Head’s distilling roots run deep,” says Sam. “We’ve been putting our off-centered thumbprint on the distilling world for over a decade, and I’m excited that we’re now able to take this project to the next level by broadening production and distribution.”

Beer Geeks stems from the demands of both brewers and volunteers alike that have clamored for additional support, say show administrators.
