DOWNINGTOWN, PA — Victory Brewing Company and Dogfish Head Craft Brewery are pleased to announce that they will again co-host the non-traditional art exhibit celebrating the artistry of craft beer, Amber Waves, at the 2014 Craft Brewer’s Conference.
Now in its second year, Amber Waves will be held on April 10, 2014 at the RedLine Art Gallery, a diverse urban laboratory where art, education and community converge in Denver, Co., and will feature 27 American craft breweries showcasing art in both its traditional and liquid form. Each brewery will contribute an amber-colored beer, along with a custom art piece commissioned exclusively for auction at the event.
“The craft brewing industry is built on craftsmanship, creativity and responsibility,” said Bill Covaleski. “Once again, we’re coming together to celebrate the best of what we do every day.”
During the event, guests will enjoy discovering the unique and varying flavor profiles that can be found in the all-amber beer line-up and have the opportunity to bid on their favorite art pieces throughout the evening via a silent auction. All auction proceeds will benefit the RedLine Art Gallery.
“Last year, we hosted this inaugural event with great success and feedback from both participating breweries and fans,” Covaleski continued. “This year, we’re excited to welcome our returning breweries, as well as grow our lineup with new additions, and offer a wider variety of beer for attendees to sample and art pieces for auction.”

About Dogfish Head Craft Brewery
Dogfish Head opened as the smallest commercial brewery in America in 1995 brewing in ten-gallon batches on a glorified-modified homebrew system. Even then, our mission was to bring off-centered ales to off-centered people. Our belief was (and still is) that beer can have as much flavor, complexity, diversity, food-compatibility, and age-ability as the world’s finest wines. We have never wavered from this belief. So. We’re a little less small now.
