Veterans of the Big Beers Festival know they must be quick to score Calibration Dinner seats for the custom double beer pairing menu created around Avery and Dogfish Head beers, and to be entertained with stories shared by the brewers and owners themselves.

For Big Beers 2018, Adam Avery, founder of Avery Brewing in Boulder, will be sharing the stage with Bryan Selders, of Dogfish Head, former head brewer and now brewing ambassador for their new Rehoboth Beach brewpub.
