CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, July 11 - July 17, 1997 - 51 J BUSlN & REAL ESTATE - - Dogfish Head Craft Brewery bottles up grand opening Grand unveiling set July 12 at Nassau Commons headquarters By Jen Ellingsworth Something new is brewing in Lewes. Its ingredients are organic and natural, and include premium barley, hops and herbs. Soon you'll be able to enjoy it in new. 12-ounce bottles. Dogfish Head Brewings & Eats will unveil its latest edition, the Dogfish Head Craft Brewery, on Saturday, July 12 in the Nassau Commons off Route 1. Dogfish Head Brewings and Eats, a brewpub located on the Avenue in Rehoboth Beach. recently celebrated its second anniversary. The i:lemand for the establishment's beer is so great, Dogfish Head found itself with a pleasant dilemma. Dogfish Head President Sam Calagione said the new brewery will help the company meet the demand for its product. The brewery's owners include Cala- gione, restaurant manager John Rishko and brewmaster Jason Kennedy. 'Saturday's grand opening fes- tivities, which begin at 1 p.m., include tours of the facility and enterta.inment provided by Burn- ing Bus and Irish sensation Black 47. Tickets for the event are $10, which includes a pint glass. Dog- fish is also providing a" free "BreWery Express" trolley, which will depart from the Brewings & Eats location at 320 Rehoboth Avenue at 1 p.m., and bring glaests back after the show. The new 30-barrel microbrew- ery will be used solely for manu- facturing Dogfish Head's Shelter Pale Ale, Chicory Stout and Immort Ale. Dogfish Head is the first business in Delaware to own both a brewpub and a microbrew- ely. Calagione said that while the current Dogfish Head brewpub is capable of producing 10 barrels at a time. the new brewery will be able to process 100 barrels at once. "Our bottling line there fin Rehoboth) is cramped," said Cala- gione, "We need space. We're only able to-do about three bottles a minute on our bottling line there. We can do 50 bottles in here." While Dogfish will still produce beer for its Brewings & Eats loca- tion at that site, he said distribu- tion will take place from the new brewery site. Dogfish Head will also expand its current distribution, which spans Delaware and Philadelphia, to include New York, New Jersey Washington, D.C. and Maryland. Because the Dogfish Craft Brewery was built by its owners, the company was able to maintain its tradition of originality. "It's a nice position to be in," said Calagione. "We're sort of the 'David' of the 'David and Goliaths' of the brewery business. The fact that we"re not a turn-key operation enables us to stay true to our goals of creating original- style brew. "Because we're small, we can stay in the vein of a traditional brewery."

Be aware of dark colors that around in your kitchen? Not enough workable counter space? Consider remodeling. Remodeling your kitchen is not only more pleasant, but can also add value to your home. Although the kitchen is one of the most popular rooms in the house, it might not be meeting your family's needs. Before decid- ing whether to r6model, ask your- self questions such as: How much time does my family spend in the kitchen? What are my meal prepa- ration needs? In other words, what fits my family's lifestyle best? Planning ahead can make your kitchen remodeling easy.

Design and home magazines are great sources for what trends are popular. The cost of remodeling your kitchen can vary.

Doing it yourself is an option that can save you money. For proper sizing and installation, you may choose to use the store's computer design service. Also, realize that cabinets will take up most of your remodeling budget. Another way to update your kitchen is through lighting design. Light plays an i .mportant role in defining the ambiance of your kitchen, Adding a window can make your kitchen a brighter, more pleasant workspace. If your kitchen has limited space, consider using a light- color scheme, as light colors tend to make a room look larger and more can make a kitchen look smaller. If you have children, you may want to consider easy-to-clean cabinets and floors. One of the easiest ways to change the look of your kitchen ts by upgrading a major appliance such as the refrig- erator. This is an effective way to add value to your home while creating a new look for your kitchen. Keep in mind, however, newer models of refrigerator and ranges may require different space than your old appliances did.
