Dogfish Head Alehouse, which opened its first location at 800 W. Diamond Ave in Gaithersburg in 2005, announced it has donated a combined $1,000,000 to charity over the past 17 years between its three locations.
In an email sent out on Thursday, the company said, “for over 17 years we have committed to supporting local causes, from schools, to veteran’s groups, to pet rescue, to families in need, plus many more. With our latest and last fundraiser at our Falls Church Alehouse we hit a milestone of which we are very proud: $1,000,000.
We are proud of our staff for being enthusiastic advocates for local causes and equally proud of our Falls Church, Fairfax and Gaithersburg communities for making this happen. Our Fairfax and Gaithersburg Alehouses have more fundraisers scheduled for the remainder of this year.” You can view a list of upcoming charity events here.
Dogfish Head Alehouses, which are owned and operated independent from the Dogfish Head brewery in Milton, DE through a licensing agreement, announced recently that it will be closing its Falls Church, VA location at 6220 Leesburg Pike in the Seven Corners Shopping Center. The restaurant says it was unable to come to terms with the property owner when it came time to renew its lease. The last day of service will be on May 15. The Dogfish Alehouse locations at 800 W. Diamond Ave in Gaithersburg and 13041 Lee Jackson Memorial Hwy in Fairfax, VA will remain open.
