Yesterday, funny man Ken Marino tweeted, “Please please don’t take this the wrong way, but if you don’t drink Dogfish Head beer you’re a fucking dick.” Whoa there. We love Dogfish Head, but can shying away from the beer actually make you a dick? We’d venture a ‘no,’ but we called up Dogfish Head founder Sam Calagione to see what he thinks. “I absolutely agree with Ken on that whole dick thing,” Calagione told Grub Street. “I’m sure he put the time in with market research and focus groups to make sure his statement was totally objective and factual.”
And of the responses to Marino’s tweet about drinkers in areas where Dogfish Head beers aren’t available?
“If Dogfish is not available in your state then you are not a dick for not drinking Dogfish,” Calagione said. “But you are a dick if you are not drinking an indie beer from some other small craft brewery that is available in your state. That’s a fact.”
