PORTLAND, Ore. ( TheStreet) -- Small beer brewers in the U.S. have a long-standing tradition of working with each other on beer projects. When they step out of the beer world and link up with a partner that has nothing to do with brewing, bottle shops or even bars, that's when things get interesting.The craft beer partnership is still a rare occurrence, but it's getting far more common as the benefits spill over to both sides. Few have done a better job of pulling this off in recent years that Sam Calagione, the founder and head of Delaware-based Dogfish Head Brewing. While Dogfish collaborations with brewers including Sierra Nevada, Maui Brewing, Avery Brewing and Russian River Brewing have been frequent and well received by beer lovers, it's his work with the Discovery Channel on the 2010 series Brew Masters that readied Calagione and Dogfish Head for a bigger spotlight.
