Sud surfing...... Yup, Sam's a marketer, gotta love it. Back to the best beer in the world......my own.  ;)

At least none of Dogfish's beers are "vortex bottled" or "triple hops brewed." You want to talk shameless, senseless marketing, look at the BMC crowd.

Sounds more like INKontinent.  But to each his own.

So we should only hold ourselves up to the standards of the bmc crowd?  On my 1-10 scale (just my opinion of course) bmc falls below the 1, they don't even make the low end of the scale.  I put dfh at about 5, which isn't horrible but I know they could do way better.  Less hype more brewing.  cheers, j

I think it is interesting and Dogfish is finding a way to market its beers in a very unique way by partnering on these specialty beers.  I don't like all of what they brew, but I can't say I have a problem with them pushing the envelope.  And as most everyone notes - some of their beers are pretty good.  Indian Brown comes to mind.

I agree.  The "weird beers" they make just stimulate interest.  It's not like their regular beers are awful.  I could drink 90 minute and Palo Santo Marron all day... If they weren't so expensive.  Myself, I don't care fore Pangea, Chateau Jiahou and the rest, but it's cool that they exist.
