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.

great brewery tour, as you get to see the legendary palo santo tanks. staff is friendly, beer is tasty (although just the regular offerings). lots of unique merchandise if you want to pick some up.

I recommend you also drive down to the beach (in the off-season) to the brewpub to try some experimental beers and/or vintage stuff.

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.

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!
