“Writing The Dogfish Head Book: 25 Years of Off-Centered Adventures alongside Andrew and my wife, Mariah, was an amazing experience,” said Sam Calagione…
“We shared so many wonderful memories about our journey together to create and develop Dogfish Head into what it is today, and I could not be more thankful for their help bringing this new book, and the brand as a whole, to life. – and props to our Creative Director, Paul Thens, and the rest of the design team for making the book’s photos look as tasty as our beers.”
“When we first opened and were hand-bottling all our beers, I never imagined that Dogfish Head’s off-centered ales would one day be distributed to all 50 states, let alone that our name would be known by craft beer and spirits aficionados world-wide. It is astonishing and truly humbling.”

And in a world with already too many beer books, this off-centered opus is refreshingly new.
