Beer Event: Dogfish Head at The Freehouse in Wayne, PA

When we arrived around 9:00 PM there was a good crowd with room for more. Sam Calagione, founder, and Matt Webster, er beer guy ;-), were there representing Dogfish Head. It was a relaxed atmosphere with lots of beer flowing. Freehouse is a new addition to Wayne and seems to have their head on fairly straight. This is what I remember from the taplist;

  • Strong Bow
  • Guinness
  • DFH 60 Minute IPA
  • DFH 90 Minute IPA
  • DFH 120 Minute IPA (unfiltered and 2 months old)
  • Bass Ale
  • Stella Artois
  • Fuller's ESB
  • Magic Hat #9
  • some others
So this is one of those places that you can go to with your non-beer snob (I mean that in the nicest sense) friends and find something you'll probably like. Of course they sell wine and spirits as well so there's something for everybody. For me this was a chance to meet Sam Calagione and get out on a nice Wednesday evening. I was also happy to see Matt Webster who we just recently hung out with at The Flying Pig in Malvern. Thanks Sam and Matt for the beer. And a big thank you to The Free House owners & management for putting some good beer on tap. We wish you the best of luck in your new endeavor. If you're interested DFH will be at The Beer Yard in Wayne for a tasting tonight :-) Not sure if I'll be there, but, Bryan and the crew will be. Man...I think we're becoming DFH groupies. See what Ommegang does to you. -Adam

Is that the new Punkin shirt? Or the skull? The DFH website only has the skull one, but I like the one in your post a lot more.

I'm pretty sure that is the old one. Yes, it is highly coveted. :-)

If there's no shirt to be had, there's no list to be first on!
