Located off the beaten track. Very big factory with plenty of parking. Food trucks on parking site at least during the lunch hours. Tasting room, brewery tours, big gift shop. Vintage bottles available at growler station (cheapish prices). Samples of four available and they are free! Service was a bit slow. It looked like some of the workers were not real bartenders more like volunteers. Art outside of building. Cool place, I even met Sam.
This is the production brewery, so the ambiance of the tap room wasn’t great. But everyone before/after the tour gets 4 free samples, which is quite generous. On tap were their standards and some other occasional varieties. The only reason I marked down the selection is that as this is the production brewery, they don’t have many experimental or exotic new things on tap. The food truck was good and the pulled pork was pretty decent. The bartenders, tourguide, and other staff were friendly, informed, and great!
Industrial park setting amid farmland. Tap room itself is in a small section of the brewery that dominates the surrounding area. Hostess was pleasant, but the bartenders were less attentive. Decent selection of about 14 taps but was hoping for more experimental styles that we could not find anywhere else. The freshness of the brews was rewarding, though. The attached food truck, with an enticing wood fired aroma, offered a good selection of inexpensive choices, including chili and a tasty grilled cheese sandwich. Nice side trip if you are not pressed for time.
Nice tour of the facility that focuses on the history and recipes rather than the Brewing process. Tour is followed (or preceded) by 4 samples, which is more than generous. Grill wagon serves up some tasty brats as a nice accompianment. Typical taproom vibe, gift shop rotates bottles. Always something new here.
Ganz toller Service. Wir haben Vormittags sls einzige Besucher zu zweit eine 1 1/2 Stunden Führung bekommen! Toller Tadting Room mit aktuellen Testbieren. Vor der Brauerei klasse Foodtruck mit hausgemachten Bierwürsten. Dogfish Head ist für mich die innovativste US Brauerei. Hinfahren!
The negatives first. Most of the tour guides seems to be heavily hit by ADHD. Especially after a long night the brewpub in Rehoboth Beach that was a bit annoying. The same guys tend the bar and do everything else public facing here, so it got a bit on my nerves. The only exception was the guy in the food cart, who was so slow I bet he was hungover just as us. But the tour was nice anyway, it’s an impressive facility, the tour guides, yes we had two, they switched during the tour due to some unforeseen circumstances, were knowledgable and friendly, and were happy to cheer with us in the bar afterwards. A bit slow and unorganized service. But we had a blast anyway. Nice chowder and sausages served outside, lots of good beers on tap, same as at the brewpub actually, and lots of merchandise in the store. A must if you’re in the area, even though the brewpub should be your number one priority.
Situé au milieu de nul part. Le retail shop est l’endroit idéal pour faire le plein de Dogfish, tous les brassins du moment y sont ainsi que la panoplies d’articles dérivés. C’est aussi possible de faire la visite de la brasserie.
Located pretty much in the middle of nowhere between a bunch of crops field. Location is actually pretty cool with a bunch of boccie ball files, food truck, and some metal tree. Free samples plus great tour makes for fantastic experience. Shop was also very well stocked with a great selection of beers and growlers. I would drop by again if I am in the area.
Free tours that run most days from 11am to 5pm. Starting at 4:30 - 6:30 they have a happy hour, half priced brats. The tour was amazing, a well run operation with a knowledgeable and friendly staff.
Everyone that arrives gets four free samples of anything they have available that day. Can also purchase single beers or get your growler filled. Bocce ball and corn hole in the front yard. The tours fill up quickly so arrive early and be prepared to wait on a busy weekend.
