A big week for fans of Dogfish Head beers

By Fritz Hahn

Enjoy discounted Dogfish Head beer at local bars to celebrate "Brew Masters," a new Discovery Channel series starring Dogfish Head founder Sam Calagione. (Discovery Channel)

Dogfish Head brewer-founder Sam Calagione makes some incredible beers, but he's also a true character: He has been the frontman for a brew-centric hip-hop group called the Pain Relievaz, where he's known as "Funkmasta I.B.U."; he has traveled the world to re-create centuries-old beverages; and he will be featured on an upcoming Discovery Channel show called "Brew Masters," which chronicles the Dogfish team's excellent adventures.

"Brew Masters" premieres Sunday, Nov. 21, but there is plenty of local Dogfish fun to be had in the next few days.

First, take advantage of Dogfish's "Fan Appreciation Days" at one of the company's three alehouses in Fairfax, Falls Church or Gaithersburg. Print out this voucher, which is good for an astounding $20 worth of free food and drink when your party spends at least $33 on Sunday, Monday or Tuesday. (All kinds of rules apply, so read the coupon carefully.)

Then, on Tuesday, get a sneak peek of "Brew Masters" during a preview at Meridian Pint. The episode screening begins at 7 p.m., and there will be 10 Dogfish beers on tap, including the Miles Davis-inspired Bitches Brew, the Olde School Barleywine, Burton Baton and Pangea -- the one made with ingredients from every continent. All Dogfish beers are $2 off. Space is available on a first-come, first-seated basis.

On the following Sunday, when the hour-long show finally airs at 10 p.m., all three Dogfish Head bars will be hosting viewing parties with special beers and will stay open until 11:30. (All three usually close at 10 on Sundays.)
