Dogfish Head, known for its specialty crafted beers and spirits, as well as its multiple brewery and restaurant locations throughout the first state, is taking its first strides beyond Delaware state borders – and into the state of Florida.

The local Delaware beer company purchased a tap room previously owned by the Concrete Beach Brewery, which is located in Miami’s Wynwood neighborhood. The company did begin a residency in Miami at this same location with Concrete Beach Brewery in February of 2020. 

Dogfish Head founder Sam Calagione told the Delaware Business Times about the decision and what drew the beer company to choose Miami. “We just fell in love with the city, and the Wynwood district in particular has this flourishing, amazing artists community as well as a foodie scene. That, and because Florida is one of the robust agricultural states, especially with fruit, made us say, ‘Let’s do this.’”

According to Katie Tabeling’s interview with the Delaware Business times, Dogfish Head Miami will be putting its focus on their “core four beers,” which include IPAs Slightly Mighty, 60 Minutes, Hazy-O, and SeaQuench. Slightly Mighty is one of the top selling low calorie IPAs in the country, packing its punch at only 95 calories. The beer’s ingredient list includes Chinese monk fruit, and has other fruity hints. Dogfish Head says that this beer “throws tropical notes of pineapple, coconut, mango and citrus”. Slightly Mighty is one example of how the company is looking forward to bringing their unique, bold flavors, especially those with fruit, to the sunshine state. 

The Miami location for the brewery is set to open later this year, but no dates have been announced yet. Until then, local individuals can continue to enjoy Dogfish Head at their multiple brewery and restaurant locations in and around the Delaware area.
