Thanks, and yes I'm going to need the luck! I work for in sales for a distributor now, however we're pretty far removed from the craft beer/beverage industry (I work for a scientific research product company). However, I feel pretty good about my chances of getting a call back based off of my cover letter, I was able to name-drop some pretty influential contacts I have with one of their major distributors here in Florida, as well as some executives with Publix Supermarkets that I'm pretty close with (one of them is my father-in-law ).

Go for it, seems like a great company to work for.

Do you work for a food distributor? I'm at Goya foods, Account Mgr

I hope that's the case, I would love to see DFH back on the shelves here. I know Indiana as a whole isn't the most cosmopolitan place for beer drinking, but there are still plenty of people who enjoy good beer in my area and NW Indiana. If they're distributing to the UK or anything like that and not to Indiana...I would have a serious problem with their business model, though.

Anyways, don't mean to be a grumpy gus, it's just something that's been bothering me for a while. Come back, Dogfish Head!

Yes, it was my favorite out of the distilled stuff. The peanut butter vodka wasn't bad but it was a bit much.
