What’s Happening & WHERE

This Week in Craft Beer!


WEDNESDAY, December 2nd

  • Beer Advocate Happy Hour at the Dogfish Head Brewpub and they’re releasing Hoo Lawd, the hoppiest beer ever documented
  • First We Feast Presents “That’s Odd…Let’s Drink It” with Sam Calagione of Dogfish Head

It’s craft ­beer, remixed, when world­-class DJ and producer Z­Trip heads to Dogfish Head headquarters in Milton, Delaware to make a crazy wheat beer cranked to 11 with some of his favorite culinary ingredients. After brewing mastermind Sam Calagione shows off his freestyle beer­-making skills, Z returns the favor by debuting a brand­-new track for a very special—and very odd—audience at the brewery.
