I have to say upfront that it's hard for DFH to do wrong in my eyes. I've never had a bad beer here. Some of those beers I wouldn't have again, only for the fact that there are plenty that I can't get enough of. I make the pilgrimage from Southern NJ to Southern Del several times throughout the year by land and by ferry.

I had the pleasure of bumping into Sam there last year while my buddy and I were having a good session. Unlike guzzle211 posted, we were in fact like gushing school girls and made total fools of ourselves. The bartenders that were there remembered us from then on and we still have a good laugh about it. If you get the chance make sure to hit the brewery tour in Milton.

A- Wood everywhere in an open bar area. Long bar with plenty of tables for dining. I'd probably rate the atmosphere a little bit higher if the tables weren't so close to the bar. If it's standing room only at the bar and a customer is seated at a table near it, their view will leave plenty to be desired. The view from upstairs is very nice if you get the chance to do one of their beer dinners.

Q- Again, I've never had a bad beer here. Everything is fresh and with so many seasonal and limited release beers, the stock is always turning over.

S- Great service from my 2 favorite bartenders Tracy and Wes. I should give them a 5 for their efforts but the layout of that long bar just isn't conducive for exceptional service on a busy night.

S- You'll always find a staple of 6 or 7 regular offerings plus 2 or 3 other beers that are seasonal, limited edition or exclusive to the Rehoboth brewpub and that's just on draught. 750ml and 12oz bottles of other varieties can be had at various times of the year.

F- Not your normal pub fare but you should like most of your food grilled or smokey. Again, not a bad meal there but let's face it, I go there to drink their beer. Plenty of variety in fish, meat, veg and apps.

V- The beer is probably underpriced but don't tell them that. The food is a little bit higher then you'll pay for a burger and dip elsewhere but is justified by the quality of the fresh ingredients and of course the beer.

Been going here since early 1996, and it never fails to impress. Excellent vibe with a great look, feel and good good people. Music is always top notch. Very good ongoing selection of great DFH beers made special by the cask and one off beers that are always fun to try. Food is interesting and consistently excellent.
Business has grown, and the old pub feel is now a much busier restaurant like feel...at least on weekend nights and the summer crush. But on off hours and/or off season...the off centered clearly returns and its really a great personal beer experience you can share with the staff and others there to drink world class beer in a local pub setting. One of my favorites, and definitely one of the very best of the bigger craft beer company brew pubs.

It's a great local craft beer like pub, but also could be a great meet up with friends. You will need to get there early to get a seat. My husband and I stood around for a half an hour on a early November evening, hoping to get dinner, but still wasn't dissatisfied by the tap list instead. We decided to make the most of it, and grab a couple beers, walk out on the empty early winter deck and enjoy a Java cigar over our brews. The Bitch's Brew on tap is a must. We had previously had it in bottle several times, but it made it all the better to have it fresh. Also the only place to get Dogfish Head Vodka. Don't pass up on this. Slightly pricey for a 750ml, but well worth the quality. We made our 750ml Peanut Butter Vodka last for a whole year, as a treat!
A must!

DFH's flagship bar is a must stop for anyone in the Rehoboth area. I went there over the summer and had the Kvasir and Aprinaut on tap. They have a great selection of beers that are limited distro and even some that have been aged. They have a well-stocked stand connected to the bar where you can pick up some beer/t-shirts/etc to take home. The DFH brewery is only about a 30 minute drive from the bar so making a day out of the two of them is totally possible.
