46. Sam Calagione

Dogfish Head Craft Brewery

Sam Calagione, founder of what's now one of America's fastest-growing craft breweries, is living proof that drinking doesn't kill brain cells. Buoyed by Calagione's passion for off-kilter concoctions—such as a stout made with chicory and St. John's wort, "the world's only antidepressant depressant," he jokes—Dogfish revenue hit $44.8 million last year. Next up: selling Noble Rot, a beer Calagione's team made from bacteria-infected grapes.
