Sam Calagione

Sam Calagione is the founder and President of Dogfish Head, a Delaware craft brewery producing “off-centered ales for off- centered people.” When Sam opened Dogfish Head in 1995, it was the smallest commercial brewery in America, brewing batches of ten gallons at a time. Today, Dogfish Head is among the fastest growing breweries in the country, selling beer in thirty states and three countries. Sam is the maverick behind all of the “off-centered” things that happen at Dogfish Head, his passion and brainchild. He creates brews with unconventional ingredients: herbs and spices, raisins, wood, corn, and Aztec cocoa powder. [+]
