Vinnie and Sam at Dogfish Head Craft Brewery

Vinnie and Sam 
at Dogfish Head Craft Brewery

I had an incredible opportunity to meet with Sam Calagione, founder and President of Dogfish Head Craft Brewery in Milton, Delaware and his lovely wife Mariah. We talked a little about Dogfish and a lot about Fin City Brewing Company and our goals. Sam shared a lot of valuable advice that we will be putting to good use this year. It was the highlight of my brewing career as I have learned a great deal about brewing from Sam over the last 6 years taking tours of the Milton brewery, researching on the internet, and reading just about every publication written about the success of Dogfish Craft Brewery. What a great honor for me to have had the chance to personally thank Sam for paving the way for the rest of the craft brewing world. 

I also had the chance to talk with Mariah about the Smith Island Spice Company. We recently made our Drunken Shrimp recipe using 60-Minute IPA and a new spice mix from the Smith Island Spice Company that I made over the winter. You can find the Seafood spice mix at Food Lion & Giant food stores all over the Eastern Shore.
