There isn't much that I can say in a review about this brewery that hasn't been said in previous reviews, except that they are now moved into the new pub, just next door from the old location that is now the merchandise shop. We enjoyed the vibe in this new pub, and service was very good on a Wednesday just after the lunch crowd.

There were 19 beers on tap plus a cask offering, and we chose two, 4-glass samplers so that we could try a wide variety. All of them were very good, and overall we gave a B+ grade to them. The exceptional one was the BBA Olde School Barleywine, but notables included Indian Brown, Carobock, and Oak-aged Vanilla World Wide Stout. (We also really liked the Indian Brown when we toured the brewery in Milton the next day.)

The food menu is not extensive, but it has enough choices so that anyone should be able to find something. We really enjoyed what we ordered, and even gave a food score that was higher than our overall score for the beers. If you are anywhere nearby Rehoboth Beach, do stop here for a treat.

Right on the boardwalky-type ocean area that's not really a boardwalk but still has all the stuff you'd find on a boardwalk. They've just opened a new, very large restaurant facility right next door to the old pub, which is now a shop.

The decor looks like it came out of a box labeled "Premade 2017 Middlebrow Restaurant." It's woody, there's edison bulbs, TV, medium-strength light, low ambient noise. It's pleasant enough but doesn't have much character to it.

The beer is Dogfish Head beer. It's good.

The food kind of sucked.

The service was meh but they were incredibly busy for a Monday so they were a little under-staffed.

Overall, stop by if you're in town. But probably not worth traveling for.

Great food and fresh brews. They have a spacious bar and a big dining area. 2nd floor loft with tables and room for live bands. Its also kid friendly.

Got there at around 4:45pm on a Saturday in the middle of the summer. It was crowded when we arrived but no wait yet. Our party was 4 adults + 2 toddlers and we got seated immediately in the main dining area. Very casual, laid back vibe inside that fit the beach town surroundings. Our servers were friendly, despite clearly being very busy, but handled our food and drink orders promptly. Lots of "off-centered" offerings on-tap, but I decided to go with the Shelter Pale Ale, currently only available on draft in Delaware. It was fresh and tasty and made for a great accompaniment to the wings, pretzel bites, and fried pickles we shared at the table. The food was good but nothing mind-blowing. Overall, an enjoyable stop for some apps and drinks. I'd like to return sometime at night when they get live bands to play.

Went back in May. Had a phenomenal time! Service was excellent, the people were awesome, the food was great, and there were a good amount of beers to choose from, including plenty of experimental brews. Can't wait to go back!

Food is pretty good, beer selection is great.

They seem to always have a few taproom only things (stuff that isn't bottled normally)... but most of that has be had there... very little of the brewpub only stuff is available for growlering.

It can get very crowded, especially on the weekends, but the people were all nice.

Staff was very helpful with recommendations, and very friendly.
