"We are grateful to honor these businesses for their exceptional involvement in ensuring that the arts thrive in their communities," said Robert L. Lynch, president and CEO of Americans for the Arts.

They enrich the lives of millions of Americans and truly set a standard for other businesses to follow."
Dogfish Head benevolently collaborates with nonprofit organizations to foster community, nourish artistic advancement and cultivate environmental stewardship. “Art is an essential component to good living," says Dogfish Head founder and president Sam Calagione. “And we’re proud to support the people who are making our corner of the planet a better place to live and work.”
