- As a brewery, we brew off-centered ales for off-centered people. Our beers push the envelope of what beer is expected to be, often using non-standard ingredients, such as raisins, chicory, maple syrup, vanilla and grapes. We're also known for brewing beers with lots of hops or high alcohol contents. Some of our beers, including the WorldWide Stout, 120 Minute India Pale Ale, and the raspberry-flavored strong ale Fort, are highly alcoholic, reaching 15% to 20% alcohol by volume (typical beers have around 3% to 8% alcohol by volume). A handful of our beers are also aged in huge wooden tanks. Dogfish is also known for our Ancient Ales, brewed with the support of molecular archeologists from the University of Pennsylvania. These beers, with recipes based on residue discovered in ancient tombs include Midas Touch, Chateau Jiahu, Theobroma & more.

Style: Belgian Pale Ales
- The Belgian Pale Ale is somewhat related to the English beers also known as Pale Ales. The British use of hops and specific yeast strains gained much favor in Belgium for this style, particularly after World War II.
The Belgian Pale is a session beer, meaning that it is not very high in alchohol, measuring in around 5.5% at the highest. While the term "pale" implies a golden or light amber color, some examples are distinctly medium dark in color yet are still known as "pale" beers when compared to very dark examples such as Dubbels.
Belgian Pale Ales should never be overwhelming in any sense of the word where either flavor or alcohol is concerned. Moderation in all aspects is the key to a great Belgian Pale Ale and while delicious, the moderate fruity or malty aspects of a Belgian Pale should remain balanced with the rest of the beer.
