Dogfish’s Calagione, Dr. Pat McGovern Lampooned in Comic Strip

Sam Calagione Dr. Pat McGovern Comic Beer Advocate

I’m a huge fan of Dogfish Head Craft Brewery, and I appreciate what Dogfish Founder Sam Calagione and Dr. Patrick McGovern, the famed archaeologist, do. But it’s also kind of fucking weird. So I must admit, I got a kick out of the following comic strip by Arne Frantzell, which appears in this month’s issue of Beer Advocate magazine. If you’re not familiar with Calagione and McGovern’s work, read this article on SmithsonianMag.com and check out Dogfish’s Ancient Ales page. (Beer Advocate mag is also now available in a cool digital edition for Android devices, and I strongly recommend it.)
