THE Original Craft Beer Alehouse

We’re the area’s first authentic craft beer restaurant, serving innovative (and slightly off-centered) ales and scratch-made fare for more than 15 years. But we didn’t get to be an enduring hometown favorite without knowing who we are and who we serve.

Our guests prefer a warm, welcoming gathering spot over chains and copycats (and their copycats). They value fresh and delicious food, crafted with care and served by attentive and friendly folks. And, they appreciate real craft beer, such as our prized flagship brews, intriguing reissues and new seasonal offerings.

So, whether you’re already a fan – or a soon-to-be fan – join us for the truly original craft beer experience.

Dogfish Head Alehouse is committed to our community. For over 17 years we have committed to supporting local causes, from schools, to veteran’s groups, to pet rescue, to families in need, plus many more.

We are proud of your staff for being enthusiastic advocates for local causes and equally proud of our Virginia and Maryland communities for making this happen.

For each event Dogfish Head Alehouse donates 15% of that day’s sales to the hosted cause. Help us support these organizations by stopping by a fundraiser near you and dine for a cause.
