A trip to Rehoboth Beach wouldn't be complete without a stop at the Dogfish Head Brewing and Eats that said that's probably why we ended up in Rehoboth. I loved my experience overall great setup great beach atmosphere but this brewpub was world class although the beach shack decor would tell you it's just a chill place to have a beer, well it's that too. Other than the large wooden Dogfish emblems with each draft strung across the top of the bar, all of the publications DFH has been in are up on the walls on the way back to the bathroom. This really shouts out what a mainstream crossover DFH has been able to market through both the face of Sam Calagione and the extremity of the beers. Maxim and Playboy mags, along with every beer mag or newspaper across the board some one's mommy loves them and knows how to keep a good track of their successes. I went during the 3-6 pm happy hour on a Monday which was perfect for two reasons one they had 90 minute run through Randall the Enamel Animal and two they just tapped a brewpub exclusive Palo Santo Marron which utilizes holy wood from Paraguay for aging effects that's awesome. Service at the bar was dead on although vibe was very relaxed and slow this particular Monday a few people having late lunch early dinners but for the most part regulars who work in the area were here and that's where my conversation was focused. The batender was a younger guy I believe his name was Wes and via the website I see he's been working at this place for ten years, wow. Draft selection awesome they had Aprihop, Festina Peche, Palo Santo, 60 and Randallized 90 minute, Shelter Pale, Raison D'etre and D'extra, Lawnmower Light, and India Brown as well. Bottle selection I was a bit underimpressed, all they had was WWS not Red & White or Black & Blue left. Actually during my whole trip and every liquor store stop nobody had any of the big DFH bottles or special seasonal releases this was a bit of a let down that I could handle, considering I can get them all in Pittsburgh. I drank my lunch money so no food thoughts although those wood fired pizzas looked tasty. Food seemed a bit pricey and comparable to the rest of Rehoboth Ave dining places but during happy hour I had about four drafts all a dollar off so I made it out okay. Great time met a guy who worked at the local record shop that I had been eyeing up since I got to our hotel so I stopped in their the next day to shoot the shit and check out the selection.

Cheap food that is actually awesome pub fare made from spent grains! Pair that with experimental flights and you have a winning combo. I even got to meet Sam and have a drink on him!

One of my favorite places on the planet. Great staff - from hostesses to managers and of course the bar staff. The exclusives are always interesting and unique, but the year-round selections ensure a good choice is always available. Food is good and has been getting better and better. Don't miss this place!

Not had the food besides great dessert. They offer a flight sampler deal that is awesome if taken advantage of. TRY EVERYTHING. Positive Contact is a personal favorite.

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!
