Late last week Dogfish Head announced they were pulling out of Wisconsin. You can read more behind the decision on the DFH blog.
I know this will disappoint many fans of their beer. It will also frustrate some folks looking to try some of the products featured on the Discovery Channel’s excellent new show, “Brew Masters“, even though it seems to be on hiatus after only 5 episodes. Further, this comes on the heels of another popular brewer withdrawing from Wisconsin. Stone Brewing left the state late last year.
Does all this mean Wisconsin can’t support craft beers? For an excellent take on the Sconnier beer scene, check out the always strong Madison Beer Review. Further, Wisconsin is home to some excellent craft brewers in their own right. Perhaps people up there just prefer to drink local?
Either way, I’m going to miss being able to make the drive up to Madison and get Dogfish beer.
