Analog Vodka

‘The core of Dogfish Head’

The vodka space is so much like beer. In the mid-‘90s, when Dogfish Head got its start, dominated by a few conglomerates, liquid void of character and authenticity, we set out to make a vodka that captured the core of Dogfish Head. So it’s made with 100% brewer’s malt and our proprietary ‘Doggie’ yeast. Everything is scratch-made, like it used to be, as the name suggests, during a simpler time.” – Sam Calagione

Cranberry Ginger Simple Syrup Recipe


  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 3 cups water
  • 2 cups fresh cranberries
  • 1 inch of ginger root, peeled and thinly sliced


  • Add your water and sugar into a pot over medium heat.
  • Bring it to a boil. Let it bubble together until the sugar dissolves into the water and it becomes thicker. Stir it occasionally. The whole process will take around ten minutes.
  • Once it has come to a boil, add in your ginger and your cranberries and reduce the heat.
  • Allow it to simmer for an additional five minutes over low heat.
  • Once five minutes have passed, turn off your flame, remove the pot from the heat and stir.
  • Allow your mixture to cool completely, strain and bottle it up.
  • You can use a fun bottle or keep it simple and use a mason jar.
