Dogfish Head’s 2014 seasonal artist finds freedom in the weird
Jermaine Rogers never thought his art would take him very far, and for a while he was alright with that.

He was happy enough collecting a check from the Houston planetarium and drawing little flyers for bands on the side. It was the early ’90s, and music was changing. The Seattle sound was making its way to Texas, and Jermaine dug it. Club owners hired him to help promote up-and-comers like Soundgarden and The Melvins when they passed through town.

Sure, when he was younger, filling sketchbooks with Optimus Prime and coveting freshly sharpened pencils the way other kids coveted new toys, he dreamed of drawing for a living. But his teachers and other well-meaning adults had shut the door on that dream. The flyers and ‘zine covers kept him in touch with his creativity. Besides, he’d get tickets to the shows, maybe 50 bucks, and the chance to be part of something.

“I had no illusions that it would become anything huge,” he says. “It was just something that I wanted to do.”

Then Jermaine saw a poster by the artist Frank Kozik, and it was the beginning of what you might call his come-to-Jesus moment. READ THE FULL STORY.

 
 
MEET THE TEAM:
Dan Weber
What do you do?
I’ve been a brewer for 2 years and 3 months.
Best thing about Dogfish?
The culture. From managers of every department to people who just started here, everyone is here because they believe in what we’re doing and really enjoy what they do. Everyone has a good time and likes being around one another. It’s great.

Favorite Dogfish Head beer?
Being a brewer, I certainly can’t pick just one.
Burton Baton, Black & Blue, Aprihop and Noble Rot are definitely highlights. Also, I would love if we brought back Fort
.

If you could share a craft beer with anyone – past, present or future – who would it be?
I’d probably go with myself. Past Dan Weber would be able to learn a few things from present Dan Weber, and future Dan Weber could tell some great stories to present Dan Weber. Also, maybe he’d share a few things to gamble on so I could make some big money. It would be a blast.

 
 
Merch of the month: Caution Cap Tacker
Caution! Ageable Ales ahead! This metal wall tacker is all about showin’ love for our beers above 15% ABV. … But take it easy, the edges of this badass tacker can be a wee bit sharp, so be careful when unpacking.
 
 
 
Shoot a short film, win a trip to Dogfish Head
The Alamo Drafthouse and Dogfish Head Craft Brewery are pleased to announce an open call for short film entries for the seventh annual Off-Centered Film Fest. The short film competition is at the heart of each year’s OCFF, an epic multi-day celebration of craft beer, delicious food and cinema that takes place at the Alamo Drafthouse in Austin, Texas. This year’s fest will take place Thursday, April 24, through Saturday, April 26.
Each year’s filmmaking competition is centered around a theme. This year it’s “Off-Centered, Stuntin’,” a celebration of classic awe-inspiring feats in the spirit of iconic daredevils like Evel Knievel. Submissions open Jan. 31 and close March 1.
The grand prize includes $2,500 cash, “The Delaware Dogfish Experience” (a one-of-a-kind trip to Dogfish Head’s home base that includes two nights at the Dogfish Inn, a brewery tour, a kayak outing and more), and a Fantastic Fest Fan Badge for the 2014 fest in Austin, Texas.
