50 State Challenge - DELAWARE (For real this time)

This is the real 50 State Challenge post. The other one was a joke and I just had to show that clip from Wayne's World. Hopefully there's no hard feeling from my readers in Delaware.

Even though Delaware is not one of the most popular or well known states, I still found something interesting to write about. I had no idea that the Dogfish Head Brewery was located in Delaware and I bet you didn't either!

Dogfish Head is Delaware's first brewpub and it was one of the smallest commercial breweries in America. It only took a few years before the word spread and Dogfish Head had to expand. They now operate out of a 100,000 square foot production brewery in Milton, Delaware and they also opened Rehoboth Beach Brewpub & Distillery.

Milton Microbrewery:

  • Tours are free but they do recommend you make reservations because each tour is limited in size and they fill up quickly!
  • 4 samples are given at the end of each tour.
  • The Tasting Room is open Tuesday-Saturday from 11 am to 5 pm
More info on the tours can be found HERE

***This location is under renovation so the tour may be slightly different then what it usually is. Tours should return to normal sometime in June***

Yeah that's right, Dogfish Head offers more than just great beers.....they also make spirits!! Dogfish Head also makes its own hand-distilled spirits, including rum, vodka and gin (Jin). 

So, if you ever find yourself in Delaware (for whatever reason) or driving through it, stop at the Dogfish Head Brewery and try some of their unique tasting beer and spirits!
