TSD: Delaware’s best take on events, community and local life

Dogfish Head Craft Brewery founders Sam and Mariah Calagione told interviewer Karissa Thacker at the Queen Theatre that their “off-centered” approach to business has been at the core of their success. 

Craft brews in hand, riffing about entrepreneurial energy and building a culture of success, Mariah and Sam Calagione made clear from the stage of the Queen last week why their business – Dogfish Head Brewery – has made history.

Or, as the Delaware Historical Society put it, the duo have delivered “extraordinary and lasting contributions to the quality of life in Delaware, our nation, or the world.”

And for that, the Calagiones were recognized on Thursday night with the Delaware History Makers Award, an evening that began with their discussion about the values and vision that have fueled the Milton-based brewery since its founding in 1995.  Today, Dogfish Head is a 300-person strong corporation, delivering over 262,000 barrels of beer to a happy market each year.

The Calagiones told the evening’s interlocutor Karissa Thacker their “off-centered” approach has been at the core of their continued business success, which now includes scratch-made spirits, food, a Lewis hotel and events across the country.

Following the discussion, attendees – including a hearty crew of Dogfish Head team members and one of last year’s honorees, Rod Ward – slipped next door to enjoy Dogfish Head and BreakThru Beverage-furnished cocktails and brews, appetizers by Janssen’s Fine Food, and live music in multiple locations throughout the Historical Society’s grand and expansive Market Street space.
