Rehoboth Beach, Del., May 3, 2019 – On Tuesday, May 14 at 8:30 p.m., Dogfish Head Brewings & Eats will welcome country music star and 2019 ACM Award nominee Jimmie Allen to its stage. A native of Milton, Delaware, home to Dogfish Head’s production brewery, Allen is returning home to the “slower lower” to share his music with fans and friends alike. Throughout the evening, folks will be treated to Allen’s powerful voice and soulful sense of groove, as well as his love of deep messages and knack for razor sharp hooks.
“The name of my debut album is Mercury Lane. It’s the street in Milton where my journey began,” said Allen. “All the fundamental life lessons that shaped my values, I was taught on that street – it’s where I learned about love, life, how to believe in myself, the concept of never giving up, following your dreams and being a good person. Coming home to play a show a short drive from where I grew up is going to be a homecoming!”
Tickets go on sale Monday, May 6 at noon and proceeds will benefit the Milton Community Food Pantry, an organization working to combat hunger in the Milton area. General admission tickets are $30 and a limited number of $60 VIP tickets will also be available. VIP admission includes early access to the venue, light refreshments and a pre-show meet and greet with Allen.
“We built a state-of-the-art stage at our brewpub because we believe that drinking a beautiful beer while listening to original music is an exponentially awesome experience,” said Calagione. “As a true beer geek with a music problem, I’m beyond excited for Jimmie to join us on our stage and to hear him bring lyrics to life.”
