Sam Calagione, founder and head brewer of
Dogfish Head Brewery to visit Johnson & Wales
One of the country's most successful entrepreneurs, Sam Calagione, will speak at Johnson & Wales University this Friday, October 2, 2009 at 1:00 PM. Though Calagione's beer is now distributed to 29 states and four countries, Dogfish Head continues to work with local farmers and merchants. Among the brewery's many honors, Slow Food USA honored Dogfish Head in October 2005, at its "Urban Harvest," a festive tribute to farmers and food artisans who provide New York and the surrounding region with foods that are delicious, ecologically sustainable and humanely produced. In addition, Dogfish Head's initiative to recycle all of its spent barley grain into cow feed has earned the company recognition from the Environmental Protection Agency's Waste Water Program.
The talk is open to all JWU students, faculty, and staff. A tasting will follow, and is open only to those 21 and over. A valid Johnson & Wales ID is required for entry. For more information, contact your local JbreW member.
