I absolutly love this place!! I have been back several times and have coined it my new Thursday Headquarters. The atmosphere is really well put together with a lining around the ceilings of all the past tap heads they have, and neat paintings that have a green pickle in them with a black and white backround. Service and knowledge of the staff is top notch. The bartender knows a ridiculous amount of information on all the beers they offer with a weekly updaated "beer Board" that changes constantly. Their selection never dissapoints when it comes to beers and love that they offer tastings and smaller less expensive pours for a chance at trying more beers with less of a hammered effect. The food is exceptional for the price and the specials are always great. I personaly recomend their appetizer fish tacos which are out of this world. To call this an app is a slap in the face to all other appetizers. Two enormous freshly battered fish tacos with a little zip from jalapenos and pickled onions. Another winner in the bacon jam and bleu burger. Sinful and wonderful combo of a giant fresh burger and shoestring fries that are addictive. I also recomend going to one of the monthly beer dinners which comprises of a 5 coarse meal and beer pairings for only $40. All in all this is my newly found utopia and I plan on spending lots of time there.

Great food and a rotating beer selection on draft that covers the universe of beer very nicely! The staff is really knowledgable and accommodating. The only drawback is it is a strip mall, but very clean and spacious. The specials are the best, and their occasional beer dinners are fun.

This place is easy to miss, but try not to, if only to try out the beer selection. We went on a Thursday off-season earlier tonight. We arrived at 545pm or so and it wasn't busy, and never got overwhelmed during our stay. We had an app amongst our beer offerings and the waitress understood we were in for the long haul (in no hurry).
The draft selection was appx 10-12 beers, with about 30-40 bottle and can offerings. The selection was pretty good, and although they did offer a few BMC, and a few local beers (always a plus in my mind) the range of others was really good. Yes, they had some DFH, but also imports and other craft beers. We easily found options we hadn't had before.
The food was decent but nothing overly special,even though we only ordered an appetizer and shared a sandwich. We filled our curiosity with 4 oz pours on a few beers, and found a few beers we want to have again (and again) . It was nice as we slowly tried our beers that our waitress adjusted and visited us as our beer got low. Funny that it appeared the "beer manager" was around and approving of our choices (or so our waitress indicated).
The reason to come here is beer options, for sure (I was drooling over the kegs I saw that had yet to be tapped). The food was totally enjoyable, and the service was pretty darn good. We were in the restaurant, but I did notice the bar area was a bit small, and the 2 TVs weren't offering much, if i were looking for downsides.

It’s on RT 1 so you don’t have to deal with the headache of going into downtown Rehoboth. It’s tucked in a strip mall that has plenty of parking. The food is nothing special but they do have some fun and creative dishes. I have never had a bad meal, but never a great one either. They have a very nice beer list of not just local stuff. I prefer this over going into down town Rehoboth any day. I would say go here for lunch, DFH if you wanted to try a brew pub exclusive, and Pig and Fish (sister restaurant with more creative and higher end food)

Popped in here real quick after a recent trip to Dogfish Head. It seemed a pretty decent place, nestled innocently in a small strip mall adjacent to a Burger King. You pass by a small seating area to get to the bar, which seats maybe 12-15 people. Simple decor on the walls, somewhat dimly lit, TVs, a large chalkboard displaying what's on tap. There was a decent selection on tap--about 10 to choose from--and the beer list tempted us with stuff that was in the pipeline but not on yet, and it that's not enough for you, there is a pretty nice bottle selection as well. Small pour option is always good. We had eaten earlier, but we sampled a few small items for a snack, and every thing was good. Our bartender was friendly and on the ball, so no complaints about the service.
Our visit was short but sweet, and I would like to go back here for a full session, but on the rare occasions we go to Rehoboth Beach, it's always for the DFH brewpub, so...
