Check Out Dogfish Head’s Very First Super Bowl Commercial

Dogfish Head

The big game is almost here, which means it’s time to get ready with snacks, beer, and a bevy of outrageous commercials. Some people tune in just to see the commercials! Dogfish Head is getting in on the game day festivities with their first-ever Super Bowl ad, which will be airing exclusively in the coastal Delaware area.

While some advertisers spend upwards of $7 million for a 30-second Super Bowl commercial, Dogfish Head is bringing its off-centered ethos to the football field by debuting one of the year’s smallest ad buys – ringing in at about 1,000 times less than $7M figure.

Because who needs crazy production budgets and endless celebrity cameos when you’ve got electric football and delicious IPAs to make a commercial?

For those outside of The First State, here’s what founder Sam Calagione and his team have whipped up for the big game. The ad pays homage to Sam’s innovative use of a Tudor Electric Football Game to create Dogfish Head’s 90 Minute Imperial IPA.

If you’re looking for more Electric Football content, Dogfish Head was the exclusive beer sponsor of the Tudor Games Electric Football World Championship (Feb. 4-5) that was held at the Dogfish Head Tasting Room & Kitchen in Milton, Delaware.

Here are some pictures from the festivities:

Not going to lie, it looks like a ton of fun!

For those of you that couldn’t make it to coastal Delaware for the festivities, don’t sweat it. You can check out a replay of the event’s most exhilarating moments on their YouTube channel. If this style of football is more your speed, you can even grab a custom beer-themed edition of the Tudor Games Electric Football game from the Dogfish Head online shop. It’s the perfect football fix for some off-season fun!

Don’t forget: the best pairing for any type of football is a delicious Dogfish Head beer. Click the link below to visit the brewery’s Fish Finder and track down your favorite brew.
