Dogfish Head Brewings & Eats
Dogfish Head, known for its “off-centered ales for off-centered people,” brings the two together at Dogfish Head Brewings & Eats in downtown Rehoboth. On Friday and Saturday nights, guests can enjoy their favorite Dogfish Head flavors—and a few one-offs or seasonals—on tap while listening to live music often selected by owner Sam Calagione. His eclectic taste in music pairs perfectly with his beer, and spotting him in the crowd hanging with patrons and bopping his head along to the music makes partying with the king of craft beer way cooler than whatever the kids are doing in Dewey.
