after taking the 3:00 friday tour at the production brewery in nearby milton, we went immediately to the original rehoboth brewpub to do battle with the randall. the tour is worth taking-you get a few free samples and the opportunity to buy some beers which may not be otherwise available. we picked up some palo santo and world wide stout. the original pub has a lot of character-a homey, just right-sized building in quaint rehoboth beach. decor is antique shop meets brewpub. two levels and a small area for a band. the band that played that night, "special ed and the short bus" (love that name, as i was B.D. in school) was quite good, although not my style of music-bluegrass/country type sounds played by some wacky subculture of guys that look like they just came from a civil war re-enactment. food was decent, the crab dip appetizer in particular was great. selection of beers is all dfh, the mainstays and some seasonals are available along with a couple cellared beers. we had the opportunity to go at it with the aforementioned randall which is used on mondays and fridays. the not-available elsewhere theobroma was quite interesting. we also got to try 105's and midas touch, but our session beer was randallized 90 minute, which left all of us staggering back to our dingy hotel after 8 hrs of battle. our party suffered a 50% casualty rate from the randall, with two vomiting well into the following day. our server was passionate and knowledgable about dfh beers. quite busy as well, even at this time of year. overall a great time and a must visit if you are in rehoboth beach.

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.
