    Dogfish Head being my favorite company merging with the first company I truly remember enjoying when I got into tasting the beer instead of getting drunk makes me happy. I only wish New Belgium would join them.

    Good job on the Dogfish side but you seem to avoid complementing Boston Beer. Many disguised swipes at the leader in the craft industry. Like them or not Jim has had the back of the entire industry and brews beers that are second to none. They might not be considered the cool kid on the block but have always had the guts to pave new paths.

    406,000 shares for Sam and family at today’s close of 347.76. He’ll be OK.

    As a fellow Dogfish fanatic and one who loathes ‘selling out’, I don’t even consider Sam’s merger a sale. In fact, he probably could have sold his company for twice as much to one of the conglomerates. You nailed it. Best exit ever. And umm, did you really find a World Wide Stout for just $9 bucks ?!?

      The high octane yellow cap beers (which are phenomenal) can be bought for ~$8 each in Delaware. In my state it’s $12-14!

      If you’re ever in Delaware load up! 🍻

    Best summation I’ve read abut this yet. You hit the nail on the head.

    Good for Dogfish Head! It’s just a shame they had to merge with Sam Adams, the low-blow, scumbags of craft beers.

      Why the anger towards Sam A

      Agreed. Sam Adams are not who they once were, and while they still like to refer to themselves as “the little guy”, they are anything but and make regular efforts to keep down the little guys.

    And it will also put Boston in a position to be bought out in the future by one of the BIG guys!!

      You are absolutely right on this one!! I see the Boston Beer Company selling out to a big conglomerate. Sad, but true. I give it 3-5 years. Hopefully, Dogfish will continue with their good beers and spirits and not allow Sam Adams to mess with what’s been working so well.
