Support businesses who support the defense of small and independent brewers.
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 and 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.”
New service available exclusively to independent breweries.
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.
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.
Saluting all things casked, the brewers at Dogfish concocted an over-the-top lineup of delicious, twisted selections especially for Analog-A-Go-Go attendees to enjoy.
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
Whiskey Barrel-Aged Palo Santo Maron – a super-special beer
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.
Head to Dogfish Head Brewings & Eats on Sunday, November 5 for a delicious Analog-A-G0-Go themed brunch with a special DJ spinning vinyl from 10am to 1pm.
Fans who want to make a weekend out of it and get the ultimate Dogfish experience can book an Analog-A-Go-Go 2-day package at the Dogfish Inn.
