Dogfish Head Expands Distribution to Nebraska
(Milton, DE) – Dogfish Head Craft Brewery is happy to announce its collection of off-centered beers is on its way to the great state of Nebraska. Locals can look for Dogfish on shelves and taps beginning in late February. The Delaware-based craft brewery partnered with Johnson Brothers Liquor Company to bring Dogfish Head’s full portfolio of flavorful ales to residents throughout the state of Nebraska, taking the company’s total market distribution to 39 states and Washington, D.C.
Committed to consistently delivering goodness to its fans, Dogfish Head strategized and laid the groundwork for a forward-looking growth plan for Nebraska and beyond. The brewery enjoyed explosive double digit growth in 2017 and tripled the size of its sales team to further support its existing distribution partners across the nation. Along with its diverse and innovative portfolio of craft beers, Dogfish redesigned its artwork, revamped its packaging, introduced cans to its mix, announced its 2018 artist collaboration with Marq Spusta for the Off-Centered Art Series, and unveiled Dragons & YumYums, a beer created and brewed in partnership with the legendary American indie rock group, The Flaming Lips.
“We’re excited to ship our innovative beers to Dogfish fans in Nebraska and to begin a great and long-lasting relationship with the beer drinkers, retailers, and distributor partners in the state,” said Sam Calagione, founder and CEO of Dogfish Head Craft Brewery. “We have our canning and bottling lines pumping out a ton of beer and enough brewing capacity to ensure we can keep retailers well stocked with our well-differentiated family of beers for years to come.”
Dogfish fans in Nebraska can expect to see all of the brewery’s iconic, fan-favorites, including 90 Minute IPA, Namaste White, Indian Brown, 60 Minute IPA, SeaQuench Ale, Lupu-Luau IPA, Flesh & Blood IPA, Palo Santo Marron, Burton Baton, Midas Touch and seasonal releases. Limited quantities of specialty beers and occasional rarities will also be available throughout the year.

Dogfish Head Brews and Nebraska Chews
For those craving a bite with their Dogfish Head beers, the brewery suggests pairing these off-centered pints with some well-known Nebraska dishes.
The next time you’re having a Reuben, grab a Wood-Aged Bitches Brew. Its prominent dark malt backbone provides a nice complement to the sandwich’s salty corn beef, while its firm bitterness cuts through the creaminess of Russian dressing.
90 Minute IPA is a great brew to pair with cheeseburger pizza. It has enough malt character to balance this filling meal, while its assertive piney and citrusy hops provide a refreshing finish.
Try a 60 Minute IPA with cheese frenchees. Its West Coast hop profile cuts the richness of this deep-fried, cheese-filled delicacy without overpowering it like a heavier beer might.
