“Fabulous Tour / Amazing Beers!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 March 2014

If you're anywhere near Dogfish Head Craft Brewery, and you're into craft beers, you simply MUST visit the brewery. The hour long tour is informative, entertaining and ends with several beer samples. The best part? It's free! Arrive early as tours are first come, first serve and can fill up quickly. If you do have to wait for a later tour, no worries! There's plenty to do at the brewery. Enjoy some tasty brats, delicious clam chowder or crunchy pickles from the food truck. Sample some amazing beers at the bar. Check out the extensive Dogfish merchandise that often includes beers you can't get elsewhere. You can also take home the aforementioned brats, clam chowder and pickles available in the cooler section. And of course there's plenty of cool Dogfish swag. Gaze in wide wonder at the majestic Steampunk Treehouse. Before you know it, you'll be donning safety glasses for the tour and learning how Sam and his team have built an impressive empire centered (or should I say off-centered!) around beer. Afterwards, head over to the brewpub in Rehoboth to take in the full Dogfish experience. Free live music on Friday and Saturday nights is a bonus. Get a hotel room nearby and take a cab...you'll need it after partaking in all the brewpub-only offerings. The food at the brewpub is a gastric delight as well. We visit Dogfish every few months!! In fact we are heading back up there this weekend.

“Free tour with free beer”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 March 2014

If you're into craft beer and if you're in the area, this is a must see. The tour is free and you are able to sample four of their beers... for free! These are cupfull samples, not a simple shot. This tour takes about 1.5 hours but it's worth it. Great tour for the beer lover.

“Do this tour.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 February 2014 via mobile

This is the best brewery tour I have been on. The brewery is a fun place to visit as it is artfully decorated and well kept. The staff is friendly and enthusiastic about the product and their jobs.

Four free beer samples of your choice make the tour even better.

Do this tour if you are ever traveling through Delaware or the Eastern Shore of Maryland.

This tour makes a fantastic hand was

“Excellent craft brewery in excellent town.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2014 via mobile

I first ventured to this brewery a bit over a year ago and the first time I went I took the brewery tour. During that tour the guide was very informative and I learned more about brewing beer, the steps, ingredients, and equipment it takes to do so and also how different beers are made to taste different and what processes are used to do so. On my first visit I also noticed that everyone that works at the brewery is very friendly and knowledgeable about brewing beer and the end result of the process. Needless to say, since I live fairly close to the brewery, I go there a couple times a week to sample beers and maybe buy a pint and a brat. Overall this brewery is a great place to hangout. Two bocce courts outside, super fresh craft beer in a great small town in U.S.A. and a really great group of workers. My opinion, one of the greatest places on earth to be. If you are ever in Delaware it is a must stop. There are also many things you can do during a day in Milton. You can shop for antiques, visit the museum, walk around the park, try out restaurants, or just people watch.
