Excellent quality beers. A relaxed, comfortable setting. Friendly, knowledgeable staff. 10 miles from DogFish Head. What more could you want?

Visited this place once, while en route to DFH in Rehoboth. The room inside the brewery is spacious, with the actual bar space being about medium-sized. The place smelled like wort. There were only a few people there, so service was fine. I guess one of the guys behind the bar was the owner or head brewer, because he seemed to know quite a bit about the beers, and was expounding and explaining about them to the other patrons.

There were a decent amount of beers to choose from, with a good variety of styles. As for the beer itself, none of it really struck me as being too memorable. They seemed to have a lot of good ideas, but the quality just wasn't there. At least not yet...there's a lot of room for improvement, I guess is the nice way to put it. Among the brews I sampled, the oyster stout was probably the best, with the brown ale also being pretty good--strange as I rarely enjoy that style.

Overall, the place was okay, and I'd say it's worth checking out at least once, and probably worth keeping an eye on, just to see how they progress. Though they've been around a few years now and are still pretty much under the radar.

I visited the 16 Mile brewery and tasting room on March 15th, 2014.

First impression: Nice, large building from the outside. They have a nice, small area to sit outside with a fire pit and stools made from old half-barrel kegs. The tasting room is medium/small, but very nice. A beautiful, natural wooden bar adorns the tasting room..

Beers: AWFUL. Their motto is "bold, session ales", but none of their beers are bold. They are all lackluster in every category. Their so-called "IPAs" are so sparingly hopped that there is absolutely no pronounced hop flavours or aromas. All eight beers I tried were all overly sweet.

Overall: It's a shame that the tasting room was so nice but the beers were so bad. 16 Mile is another example of the craft beer wasteland that is the Delmarva Peninsula.
