Good selection of beer, tour is longer now since they take you outside to the bottling/packing warehouse. Employees in the bar area seems a little snooty. For example, even though I was trying to get service they seemed to ignore me and continue conversations with each other. When we were finally served and the person I was with had enough beer, they promptly came over to us said said sharing is not allowed and dumped the beer. The sample sizes were not that big but the guy told me something about Delaware law. It seemed odd, since Fordham / Old Dominion down the line were really laid back with bigger sample sizes and had an awesome family vibe, but whatever.

I love DFH brews and greatly respect/appreciate what Sam & Co. have done for the industry. So call me biased. But the brewery here is state of the art, and DFH has reinvested substantial dollars to "do it right" in every facet of the operation. Quality control is paramount, and the new bottling facility is a marvel of modern engineering. Truly the gold standard for the industry. Take the tour, if you get the chance...it's well done, and a true education.

As for the tasting room, I'm sure there are very good reasons why they cannot offer much more than the standard lineup here (as opposed to the brewpub in Rehoboth, where you can sample all of the experimental brews). In this regard, the brewery is more of the mass production factory, while the brewpub is the mad scientist's laboratory. But this is still a good spot to catch all of the special releases (WWS, DFH 120, Beer Thousand, Raison D'Extra). My recommendation is that you visit BOTH the brewery (in Milton) and the brewpub (in Rehoboth). They are both great spots, for different reasons. Enjoy!

Fun tour (paid if I recall) with lots of yummy beers to sample (for free if I recall).

Also, you can play bocce ball and cornhole outside while you drink and wait for your tour.

WORD OF ADVICE: Don't expect to arrive and go on your tour right away. A lot of people visit here, and you may need to put your name on the list and wait for the next tour with room in it for you and your party.
