Visiting the Dogfish Head Brewery is super fun! Everyone who works there is really relaxed and knowledgeable. They genuinely want to know what beers you like from other breweries so that they can recommend beers that they make which are similar. I have always had great experiences at the the brewery in Milton and the restaurant in Rehoboth Beach. I highly recommend visiting one or both of these locations.

awesome vibe even with it being packed to the brim, quality of the building is great, seems very upkept and modern while still retaining that "Dogfish Head" brand vibe. Service was decent, not great, but the brewery was slammed that day so it took a while to get samples, but more floating employees would easily fix this. they're selection was great, around 14 beers on tap from what I can remember. plus, that Steam Punk style tree house outside is sweeeeeeet!

I tend to take this place for granted, since in my many years of being able to go here I just never made the effort. Finally nearly 10+ years later, one lazy rainy day offered the opportunity.

Excellent vibe in the place, as you can get an idea that this is a very different company. Sam has created a fantastic brand and image and it shows in the work of the employees and surroundings.

Not much else really needs to be said about the beers, you wont find obscure one offs here though, you will have to go to Rehoboth for those. There is nothing you can buy here you can't find anywhere else. However, you will find a big store that sells a lot of swag, and also of course very fresh beer.

The tour is actually quite entertaining, with the most interesting bits being about the history of how Sam got started and the surrounding areas history. Staff here are very enthusiastic, and there is a sense they really like their jobs too. I wouldn't be here every day, but it's a good place for a rainy trip.

Great visit. A free tour which includes four free tasters of anything on tap, which for me included the 120. Friendly staff and an amazing facility. I'm a bigger fan of DFH following my day here.
