Lately, there has been so much good news for Dogfish Head Craft Brewery owner Sam Calagione, pictured, that his product is simply becoming too popular.

On Monday it was announced that Calagione was nominated for a coveted James Beard Award in the Outstanding Wine and Spirits Professional category. And that is on the heels of the success of his Discovery Channel show, Brew Masters, which follows Calagione and his staff as they tour the world looking for exotic ingredients and beer techniques.

This all comes at a price, apparently, as Dogfish Head has decided to cut supply of its beer off from Tennessee, Indiana, Rhode Island, and Wisconsin—a decision that is unprecedented in the brewery's 16-year-history. As the brand has gained popularity, the supply of the brews—especially the 60 Minute IPA—simply can't keep up with the demand. Counting the four states where distribution will soon stop, Dogfish Head has reached a total of 30 states, which some have described as "too much, too quick."

Luckily for us, Dogfish Head will continue to be distributed in the Delmarva area. And a tour of the popular brewery is only a short drive away.
