Earlier this year, I took a tour of Dogfish Head’s brewery in Milton, Delaware. It was the second time I had done so and the first with a camera. DFH has long been an advocate of all things analog, including events such as Analog-A-Go-Go, a vinyl swap meet and beer tasting, and Vintage Vinyl, a monthly happy hour at the brewery spinning vinyl records. Dogfish Head has a lot to show off and photographing the brewery in film was an obvious choice for as someone who works heavily in the medium, both in 35mm and 6×4.5 cm medium formats. I opted for the smooth grain Kodak TMAX 400 black & white film. The film scans came back at an enormous 30 megapixels and were downsized so they actually load on the blog.
If you haven’t visited the brewery, you owe it to yourself to do so. The tour is free but bring cash for “Beer Centric food” at their food truck, Bunyan’s Lunch Box and wear closed toed shoe for the factory. Plan to get there early and stay late for amazing beers and perusing their sweet gift shop after. Dogfish Head has an expanded distillery that should now be open and I hope to return to check that out.
