Dogfish Head Brewings & Eats in Rehoboth

Friday, November 8 – Texas-based dream pop band Deep Blue Something – best known for its 1995 worldwide, smash hit single ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’ – takes the brewpub’s world-class music stage at 10 p.m. After taking a long hiatus from the music industry, this timeless group reconvened in 2016 and is now performing at venues across the country. No cover.

Saturday, November 9 – The weekend’s lineup of live music continues at 10 p.m. with Bronze Radio Return.

Sunday, November 10 – For folks that are not quite ready for the celebration to end, the brewpub will host a delicious, Analog-A-Go-Go themed brunch from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. A special DJ will be on stage spinning vinyl and Extended Play by Gidgets Gadgets Retro Emporium will be onsite with a pop-up record shop.

Saturday, November 9 – Musician and Dogfish Head co-worker, Kerry Hallett, will entertain diners with a mix of heartfelt originals and reimagined covers from 6-9 p.m. Throughout the evening, Chesapeake & Maine’s new ‘Seafood Keg’ – a heaping pile of fresh shellfish, local vegetables and potatoes in an aromatic broth served in a repurposed beer keg with grilled bread and drawn butter – will be available for $10 off. Each keg serves 2-4 off-centered people.
