Dogfish Head is in the Top 20 on the 2016 Brewers Association Beer by Sales list, and Sam has proudly focused brewing beers with culinary ingredients outside the Reinheitsgebot since the day he opened Dogfish Head 22 years ago, which was the smallest American craft brewery at the time.
“We are very pleased to have Mr. Calagione joining us and engaging with the 150-plus beer writers we get each year at the BBC,” says Ryan Newhouse, Marketing Director for Zephyr Beer Conferences, which also organizes two national wine conferences, and a food conference, in addition to a full line-up of taste adventures.
An English major, Sam has authored five books – his most recent Project Extreme Brewing: An Enthusiast’s Guide to Extreme Brewing at Home was released in 2017. Sam’s innovative style has earned him the reputation of one of America’s most adventurous brewers and has been featured in The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, People, Forbes, Bon Appetit, and many other magazines and newspapers. He lives in beautiful Lewes, Delaware, with his wife and Dogfish VP Mariah and their two children Sammy and Grier.
