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.)

I went here a few weeks ago, right before Memorial Day weekend. Before going, I looked up the tour times and got there right in time the 3 o'clock tour. We had an awesome tour guide, very knowledgable. The tour took about an hour and fifteen minutes, very in-depth and interesting. After the tour we got our (free) four beer samples from the probably 15 beers they had to choose. Food was available, we just didn't buy any.

Overall a great tour, highly recommend it! Free tour, free beer.

One suggestion: get there early, get your samples, then go on the tour. That way when you are finished you can drink more! We drank our samples after the tour and were feeling a little buzzed, so we didn't end up buying a pint from there.
