Dogfish Head Brewpub

Dogfish Head Craft Brewery and their brewpub Dogfish Head Brewing & Eats are a bit like the Magic Kingdom and Epcot Center of the craft beer world. You know, minus the characters, children’s rides and the fact they are located smack in the middle of Delaware. The brewery itself  is impressive on many levels, but we will cover the myriad of its wonders in a forthcoming post. For now, let’s talk about the brewpub and more importantly, the exclusive beers brewed and enjoyed there! keep reading...

Hop Pickle – Dogfish Head Craft Brewery & Brooklyn Brine (2012)


Dogfish Head Brooklyn Brine Hop Pickle

Awhile back, we reviewed a cheese called Point of Origin, which is a collaboration between Sixpoint Brewery and Sprout Creek Farm to make a beer infused cheese. While we were picking that up, we also purchased Hop Pickles which are the lovechild of Dogfish Head Craft Brewery and Brooklyn Brine. The two teamed up to make pickles infused with Dogfish Heads 60 minute IPA. So for those who can’t be bothered with the daunting task of both eating pickles and drinking beer, this is the ideal way to combine flavors in one compact bite. keep reading...

Thanksgiving Leftovers: The Sandwich (Plus Beer Pairing)


Thanksgiving Leftovers

left·o·ver [left-oh-ver] adj. Remaining as an unused portion or amount. n. 1. A remnant or an unused portion. 2. leftovers Food remaining from a previous meal.

Leftovers are a huge part of the Thanksgiving tradition. For some people these delicious remnants are better than the actual Turkey-Day dinner itself. Let’s face it, the meal you slaved over is going to taste about 1 million (dollars) times better with your in-laws and relatives out of the house. Seriously, holidays are stressful so enjoy the fruits of your labor in peace. We won’t tell your aunt Edna.

This year we had several traditional items remaining and decided to combine them in a non-traditional way. We used several ingredients: stuffing, turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy and cranberry sauce to make a sandwich on bakery rye bread. This delicious monstrosity was dubbed, “the Gobble-nator”, and we try to use an ominous voice when mentioning it. Such a powerful sandwich commands both awe and respect. While we admit slapping eveything together to create a thanksgiving sandwich may not be totally rare these days, as this article from the Village Voice shows, it isn’t super common and is a great way to put extra to use. The ingredients used are limited only to what you have on hand or you think your guts can handle. So take a breath, get those leftovers out and build your own Gobble-nator! keep reading...

Onion and Celery Stout Soup


A delicious and hearty recipe for onion & celery root soup. This is definitely filling enough to be an entire meal and the pumpkin stout adds a perfect amount of flavor to the soup. However, it is not so overpowering that you couldn’t pair this with a different pumpkin beer and have it be a perfect compliment. Although it does not seem like many ingredients, this makes about 6-8 fairly generous servings. It keeps well and can definitely be reheated (we enjoyed it for several nights in a row). keep reading...
