image Signage for Art of the Table courtesy of our Flickr page Seattle, WA – More than likely you will see this as a recurring theme while we focus on dinners. While there are many festivals, tastings, and brewers nights, we would rather draw attention to the dinners. Although it asks so much of your pocketbook, a dinner is the best way truly to appreciate the versatility of beer when paired with a well cooked meal.

For those who have yet to visit this restaurant tucked away just off Stone (near Fremont). As someone who has attended one of their many Brewers dinners, it's easy to gush whenever the prospect of another such event is listed on the calendar. This time as a way to mix things up, Chef (and Owner) Dustin Ronspies is cooking up a 6 beer with 6 bites pairing / open house, for a very reasonable $25. Details are included below but with both Dogfish Head owner Sam Calagione and Pike Brewing owner Charles Finkel this is not a dinner to miss out.

  • Dogfish 90 Minute IPA paired with Albacore Tuna Poke, Spicy Jicama, Nori, Sesame & Fried Wonton
  • Dogfish Raison d'Etre paired with Pork Rillette, Plum Jam & Toasted Hazelnut Toasts

About Dogfish Head Crafted Ales

image of Dogfish Head's owner and brewer Sam Calagione courtesy of The Full The story of Dogfish Head began in June of 1995 when we opened Dogfish Head Brewings & Eats, the first state's first brewpub opened in the resort beach community of Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. The plan was to bring original beer, original food, and original music to the area.

Not only was Dogfish Head Delaware’s first brewpub, it was the smallest commercial brewery in America. Our very first batch, Shelter Pale Ale, was brewed on a system which essentially was three little kegs with propane burners underneath. Brewing 12–gallon batches of beer for a whole restaurant proved to be more than a full time job. When the doors to the pub first opened, we brewed three times a day, five days a week! The one benefit to brewing on such a small system was the ability to try out a myriad of different recipes. We quickly got bored brewing the same things over and over – that’s when we started adding all sorts of weird ingredients and getting kind of crazy with the beers!
