With the Dogfish Brewpub only a half mile from our family beach house – these beers hold a very personal connection with me. My wife and I held our wedding rehearsal dinner there some moons ago, back when the Dogfish crew was still brewing on site. For me, Dogfish brews are a perfect storm of history, science, and experimentation backed by the coconuts of doing something in a way that hasn’t been done before. As easy as it is to drink these tasty beverages, it is more fun for me as a cook to pair food with the deep and complex flavors the brews have to offer. Whether it is focusing on a singular spice note or flavor profile, or exploiting a sweet versus spicy or salty – it adds an element of adventure and satisfaction when we collaborate with these beers in the kitchen.
