LOL. Funny stuff.

I read someone's signature here in HBT that said their dog dropped a bone in their fermenter. Mmmm, "Dog Bone Ale" (actually has a nice ring to it).

Ya, I think naming your brewery after a dog is just silly.

And the Dogfish Head in Maine, is actually named after the Dogfish Shark which is shown on the Dogfish Head brews.

Right, but I believe Sam Calagione is from New England, and the DogFish Head in Maine was the inspiration for the brewery name.

Its been a while since I was on the tour, but its something like that!

A head is a spit of land like a peninsula. Dogfish Head is in Maine and is what Sam C named the brewery after.

I should name my beers after dogs, my dogs are named Guinness (a black and tan dachshund) and Killian (a red dachshund).
