Dogfish head was good while it lasted- I don’t see this not ruining them

Oh c'mon now HalfSh.. - why would this ruin them ?  It's not like Dogfish is a small microbrewery only serving in their brewing location.  Dogfish has expanded so much and still kept the great taste in their beer.  I am interested in where the merged company would brew.  But the quality decrease doesn't seem like a forgone conclusion.

Sam Adams produces crap beer, there’s no reason to think quality won’t drop in the better brewery, it’s what happens whenever a large brewery swallows a better smaller one

I hope not.  I remember eating crabs and other seafood with my family in the '70s at a place in Rehoboth Beach called The Crab Pot and then called Kelley's Crab Pot, that later became the Rehoboth location for the Dogfish Head restaurant and bar.  I understand it closed and, sadly, the building was razed in recent years.

I don't care what anyone says, I like Sam Adams.  So from my perspective this is not worth rending cheeks and tearing out hair.

I like most of the SA seasonal brews.

I used to like sam summer, but it seems to get worse every iteration. Boston lager is a meh beer better than bud/coors, but not by enough to matter.

CNN reporting that Guns N Roses have sued a Colorado brewery (not New Belgium) for selling a beer called Guns N Rosé.  :rofl:

Nice. That’s a better name anyway. Guns N Rosé sounds like a type of wine.

Agree - With all the beer taps at Nats Park, I can't understand why there isn't a single stout or porter on tap.

There should be spring and fall, but on a humid July day, the thought is sickening

Hehehe - while that idea sickens HS, there are many who would enjoy the dark beer - particularly in the evening.

It is very important that you try this (it may require flying to Vancouver):

New England IPAs are the best thing to happen to summer drinking in a long time- as long as they’re around, that’s what I’m having on a hot day

Chantilly Dogfish Head was unveiling the new batch of World Wide Stout tonight, thought they might have it available for a month or so.

Also had Siracusa Neri and 120 Minute IPA on tap last night.   :cheers:

I miss those days in Dogfish Falls Church.  But when you come down here, the Lost Colony Brewery in Manteo is out of this world.
