Dogfish Head brews unique beers.  In fact, their motto says it all; “Off-centered ales for off-centered people.”  Sam Calagione, the Founder and President of Dogfish Head has been brewing crazy creations since 1995.

 

This is how far I got…and then the Dogfish Head website decided not to work.  Or at least work as quickly as when Dial-Up was all the rage.  And that was it for me and my 365 days.  I was all prepared to write about Robert Johnson and how he sold his soul to the devil in order to play the blues.  And the unique Dogfish flavors,…
