I've been to the alehouse more times than I'd care to admit.

They only have Dogfish Head beers (and Miller and Heineken for the non-believers) but you knew that coming in. Since Dogfish Head beers are friggin' awesome, and they have such a huge variety of styles, I rate the selection quite high. Where else can you get World Wide Stout, 120 IPA, and Fort on draft at the same time?

They pretty much always have the 60 and 90 minute IPAs, Raison d'Etre, Indian Brown, and Shelter Pale Ale on tap. Midas Touch, Palo Santo, and Lawnmower Light often make appearances, and they recently made three year-old bottles of WWS, Immort Ale, and Raison d'Extra available. Their limited releases are pretty pricy, often 9 or 10, but getting a snifter of the 90 minute for under 5 bucks during happy hour is great.

The food is quite tasty. I know people that don't really drink beer that just go there for the food in fact. All the burgers and pizzas are great, and some of the less traditional pubfare is tasty as well, like their complex alehouse mac 'n cheese and southwest cajun egg rolls.

The ambience isn't anything amazing or different, but it's nicely lit and feels cozy. All the waiters and bartenders are professional, considerate people.

Free live music Saturday nights. Family-friendly. Several TVs with sports on around the bar and on the first floor. This place is great -definitely check it out if you're in the area, and let me know so that I have an excuse to go too!

Great atmosphere in this two story building. Rustic look with nice Dogfish Head posters hung all over. A bit plain, but in a good way. Not cluttered like some places.

Quality is excellent. Both in beer and food. The food compliments the beer wonderfully. Try the crab dip!

Selection is good. For me I consider it great, and I love DFH beer. The Chicory Stout was out, which I was disappointed about. Can't fault them though. A good beer goes quick.

The food was really good as well. My parents enjoyed it which is a compliment as my Mom can be hard to please.

Value was great as well. Not to high priced, and there were both cheap and expensive beer choices.

My only knock is on the service which was a little slow. Really it was our server. She wasn't bad, just not fast or attentive.

I will be going back to this place for sure!
