Stopped here on a mini-side trip from Cape May. Took the ferry. Easy to find. Right on the main strip in town. A cool downtown, but this was the centerpiece of our excursion.
Not as big as I would have thought. Average sized bar, small dining area. Packed with people, even at 2pm. 20 minute wait, lucked out and got a seat at the bar.
$5 for a sampler is a good price. It included the Shelter Pale Ale, 60 Minute IPA, Indian Brown, Raisen D'Etre and Chickory Stout. Aside from the Stout, I had tried all of them before. All are very good.
Others on tap, but not in the sampler were the Punkin, 90 and 120 Minute IPAs, the legendary World Wide Stout and a few others incl the seasonal Arms Akimbo (a licorice flavored porter).
I was psyched to see they also offered a $6 sampling of their spirits. Got four tastes (approx 2/3 of a shot worth) of the Blue Hen Vodka (incredibly smooth, I actually bought a bottle for $20), spiced rum, jin and you get to pick 1 infused vodka (I chose the pommegranite, but they also had chocolate, green apples, grape, etc). I am not a huge spirits drinker, but I must say, they were all smooth and rather drinkable straight.
Small menu, but not expensive. A lot of seafood items, including salmon and crab cake sandwiches. I had the turkey sandwich, my wife a really tasty pizza. Both were good.
I believe you can do a tour of the distillery (the brewery tour is in Milton, I think). There is also a gift shop, outside, but attached to the pub, that sells shirts, glasses, hats and other items.
A cool place. If you want to shell out some $$$ ($20+) they also have aged bottles available including their barleywine and Raisen D'Extra.

A visit is in order each summer on vacation - thanks to the rents retiring to coastal delaware. Food is excellent, have gotten to try different beers on tap that haven't yet made it to bottle plus whats on Randall! Cool to see the history of one of the most successful craft breweries! Nice little shop too.

Service was the biggest issue. From the host to the server to the manager on duty. The first visit was adults only. The server was new but had little support. The bill was wrong and when we tried to have it corrected it was very difficult. The next visit we had a child. Middle of the day the host was abrupt and rude stating you must leave the stroller outside. Again very short. One of us left to take the stroller to the car. The entire party had to wait outside until I returned. The host would not seat the party until I returned which in turn we again had to wait. Terrible
