I called in for the tour about three hours ahead of the 2.5hr drive down to Milton from NJ, and oh boy was I glad that I did.

DFH offers the usual brewery "perks"; free samples/samplers, an extensive gift shop, and a chance to be surrounded by beer geeks and lovers alike.

Perhaps we were lucky or maybe DFH is just that awesome, but my SO and I somehow ended up on a private tour with the one tour guide who was really knowledgeable on microbiology and the fermentation process, and even custom-tailored the tour to match our interests.

I can say without hesitation that this brewery tour was the first time in my life that made me glad to be a certified lab tech; kudos to the brewery for the extremely engaging and interesting insight to the behind-the-scenes of one of America's best IPAs--special mentions go to their amazingly creative staff and their awesome naming sense (I still chuckle about "Me So Hoppy" and "The Great Cornholio" at work)

Would definitely recommend beer geeks and novices alike to take the tour; even if you're not interested in the tour itself, there's plenty of other attractions around the brewery to keep you engaged (the treehouse, various beer art, beer-infused brats, and etc.)

Gets good marks for those wishing to try most of the DFH beers that otherwise easily available many places. Usual gift shop. Tasting area is large but largely nondescript. For people seeking to explore new beers or experimental beers...it is essentially boring...don't waste your time. Better chances at the Rehoboth brew pub. Despite well deserved reputation for the "off centered" and very high quality beers...there is a bit of the Stone "corporate" thing going on here. Guess we all have to grow up someday.
