Dogfish Head - Analog-A-Go-Go Returns to Southern Delaware in November

imageFrom Dogfish Head:

Milton, DE ., July 24, 2017 – Dogfish Head is excited to announce that the 7th annual Analog-A-Go-Go celebration of craft weekend will kick off on Friday, November 3 at Dogfish Head Craft Brewings & Eats, and continue at both the brewpub and the Milton brewery on November 4-5.  The festival of all things analog is returning home to Dogfish this Fall where fans can enjoy special cask-beers, craft cocktails, a plethora of vinyl vendors, food trucks, the fan-favorite artisanal marketplace and live music on the new world class pub stage at Brewings & Eats.

“Analog-A-Go-Go is one of my favorite annual events at Dogfish  for sure,” said Sam Calagione, CEO & founder of Dogfish Head Craft Brewery. “It's about more than just super fresh and rustic cask-condition beer - it’s about the passionate and creative group of people who join us each year to make this event so fun and compelling. Like everyone who attends I love browsing the unique artisan market cask-beer-in-hand, listening to DJs spinning while crate-digging vinyl with new and old friends, all in addition to the diversity of live music and beers that we’ve curated for fans to enjoy at our brewery and pub in Rehoboth,” said Calagione. “We’re looking forward to celebrating our seventh year of Analog-A-Go-Go back in coastal Delaware with beer fans from around the area.”

Friday, November 3

The celebration of craft festivities jump off on Friday evening in Lewes at our canal side inn!  Join Sam and Bryan Selders, Dogfish Brewing Ambassador, for a music-themed Fireside Jam at the Dogfish INN at 6pm.

The live music kicks off at 10pm at Brewings & Eats with The Legendary Shack Shakers taking the stage. Originally formed in the mid-1990s, this southern gothic band draws inspiration from rockabilly, rock and roll, country, and even a little punk rock. To match the energetic tunes and theatrical stage presence, vocalist J.D. Wilkes puts on a show that earned him the title of Nashville's Best Frontman by the Music City’s entertainment magazine “Scene”, and has also been compared to Iggy Pop and David Byrne.  Over the years, the band has toured with The Reverend Horton Heat, featured the former Dead Kennedys Jello Biarfra on a song, and opened for Robert Plant (a huge fan of the Legendary Shack Shakers). If that doesn’t impress you, we don’t know what will.  Dogfish will also be premiering the special beer collaboration they did with friends from RAR Brewing in Salisbury, MD.

Saturday, November 4

The Analog-A-Go-Go festival will be held on Saturday from 11am to 4pm at the Dogfish Head Craft Brewery in Milton! This day-long, indie craft beer, music experience will feature tastings including rare cask beers and distillery samples with special tours of the Steampunk Treehouse and brewery.

Folks can also partake in a record swap while listening to a DJ spinning vinyl and then stroll around the outdoor marketplace where special handcrafted treasures and unique finds are available for purchase. The off-centered bazaar will feature 20 independent merchants selling vintage goods, art, crafts, apparel, jewelry, barware, music accessories, and vinyl collectors with new and rare LPs. Marq Spusta, the California based artist known for his distinct illustrative style and longtime friend of Dogfish, will be creating original art onsite.

Did someone say rare cask beer selections? Saluting all things casked, the brewers at Dogfish concocted an over-the-top lineup of delicious, twisted selections for attendees to enjoy including Orange Creamsicle IPA – a beer made from Flesh & Blood IPA, vanilla and milk sugar, Night in the Woods - a S'mores-inspired stout originating from the R&D brewery, a super-special Whiskey Barrel-Aged Palo Santo Maron, and more. A special guest brewer, RAR Brewing, will be at the event pouring tastings of a special cask collaboration. These one-of-a-kind cask-conditioned beers can only be enjoyed at Analog-A-Go-Go, folks. If you’re getting hungry, saunter over to one of four food trucks including Dogfish’s own Bunyan’s Lunchbox, Mojo Loco, Sweet Josephine’s and Scission Coffee. A wide variety of Dogfish Head draft beer will be also available for purchase throughout the festival.

After the Analog festivities wrap, head to Brewings and Eats in Rehoboth to check out the sounds of Waxahatchee starting at 10pm. Katie Crutchfield is no stranger to the DIY music scene. Having written music since her time as a young teenager, and then crafting the punk outfit P.S. Eliot with her twin sister Allison, along with various solo projects, Katie has been quite busy. After the disbandment of P.S. Eliot in 2011, Crutchfield started Waxahatchee. What started as a solo project incepted in her room at her parent’s Alabama home, has since garnered loads of attention from a myriad of musical outlets like NPR, Pitchfork, and Dusted Magazine. Confirming the rumors of the new album’s greatness, Waxahatchee lives up to the hype and is one not to miss.
