“History of Brewing in Delaware & 20 Off-Centered Years of Dogfish Head” examines 400 years of brewing in Delaware. Brands like Diamond State dominated the local beer market for decades until Prohibition and then were able to survive until 1955 when the doors to the last commercial brewery closed. No story about brewing in Delaware would be complete without a look at the craft beer movement today and the incredible story of Dogfish Head Craft Brewery. From the smallest commercial brewery in America at its opening in 1995 to an internationally recognized label today, Dogfish's 20 years of growth and innovation tells us much about the future -- and history -- of beer.
