Default Live in TN, IN, WI, or RI? Stock up on Dogfish...

http://www.dogfish.com/community/blo...erstanding.htm

due to overwhelming demand all over the country, DFH has to stop distributing to these states until they can figure out how to keep up. if you have a favorite DFH, go out and stock up if you live in Tenn., Ind., Wis., or Rhd Is.

I don't get it, if they're growing so fast, how are they not making enough money to support their growth? I guess that's why I'm not a business major.

That sucks. But there are so many other great brews out there. This may hurt them a little in the long run. Some people in those areas may not be loyal when they come back.

My guess is the two options besides what they are doing is to expand which takes time and they have been doing or contract brew which they probably don't want to do for a variety of reasons including quality and brand image. The problem seems to be they can't expand fast enough which is a good problem to have for them.

Just a guess, but I think it is because they care so much about maintaining quality. Fast expansion could mean a drop in quality when dealing with larger batches and different equipment.

Speaking as a business management major lol.

Bummer. Guess I need to head to Mid-Town and pick up a few packs of some stuff before it's all gone.

Guess this is why they were on sale for $8 a sixer at Kroger. Trying to get rid of their stock to make room for beers that can replenish stock......

Seriously? Well that's where their profit is going. They should bottle and sell the crap at half price as DogFishButt or something.

I heard Sam talk about DFH growth during an interview and he said they TRY to keep their grown under 20% a year. He said they could easily grow more but they don't want to so they can maintain the quality of what they do make. I was a little stunned to hear him say that but it makes sense. Though now that they have to pull out of states to keep up with other states' demands, there's no excuse for that IMO.
