Several years ago, while we were shopping for all of the wines and beers that we bring to friends’ and families’ houses during the holidays, Jesse came across Dogfish Head 120-Minute Ale and immediately popped the 4-pack into the cart. He then very excitedly rambled on about the craft beer and their other craft beers, which apparently are hard to find (at the time). When we were checking out, I was mentally preparing myself for the big bill (since there were a couple of expensive wines in the mix). I was taken aback when the cashier got to the Dogfish Head 120-Minute, he then stopped ringing up the items and began to tell me what a great purchase I was making, and, even though it is quite expensive, it is well worth the price. I then thought to myself – this is a strange conversation, especially since the 4-pack I picked up only listed the price as $14.99 on the shelf. After paying the bill and leaving the store, I was scanning through the receipt when I stopped at the Dogfish Head 120-minute Ale. HOLY SMOKES – those babies were $14.99 EACH BOTTLE!!! We kept the 120-Minute at home in our private stash of beverages that are only busted out for special occasions. The last two that Jesse and I shared was on the day that we signed the papers and officially sold our house to move aboard the boat full-time. To this day, the Dogfish Head 120-Minute is the best beer that I have ever had. Jesse and I also enjoy most of their other brews. Needless to say, when we started to plan our cruise south, Delaware was added to the itinerary so that we could tour the Dogfish Head Craft Brewed Ales brewery in Milton (the next town over from Lewes – the nearest port of call). I highly recommend to everyone to take this tour – what a great experience – and Bonus – you get free beer!
