Visited here with Da Boss on 7-27-23 just to pick up a few things in the gift shop.

Vibe seemed cool but first the size of the brewery operations was among the biggest i have scene, a huge campus for sure!
Inside you can order from a pretty good selection of beers. Given how hot it was visitors had filled up the available seating. There is a large gift shop with all sorts of beers you can take to go along with tons of swag options. There was ample outside seating and of course you had the giant treehouse in which a tour happened to be taking place and heading up into it.
Service in the gift shop was a couple of young ladies who clearly were not interested in being there, a bit too immature if you ask me.
Selection as mentioned was very good.
Overall i wish we had time to hang out but we needed to move on.

Visited for flights and a $5 tour. Flights were good, there are a number of beers on tap that aren't available to-go (but those aren't available in flights). The gift shop is well stocked with swag and beer, and the cheap tour we took still got you a beer plus a taster of beer.

This place is HUGE! Like no joke the size of this brewery and land is crazy, I wish I had the time to take the tour to get a full look on their operations. Lots of outside seating and a big taproom. Tap list was cool because they brew beer their that you can’t get in bottles or cans through a distributor. They have about 30 beers on tap. There’s too many to list how many beers they had on but they definitely had a nice variety of styles. Their beer was solid but nothing that blew me away by any means. Their service was awful, now I get it was Labor Day weekend when I went BUT, they had 9 bartenders on. I waited 15min for a drink and was blatantly ignored after receiving eye contact several times. Won’t go there again just because of the poor service.

One of the coolest breweries going. Huge tap list with multiple of all the major styles, and lots of pales and IPAs to choose from. Delicious pub food at their food window. And really hip vibe inside as well as outside on their spacious deck. Cool gift shop as well.

Visited on 11/10/20. They are doing their best given current conditions. Food was very good, better than I expected. The service was good, receptive, and inviting. The beer selection was more amazing that expected. I had never been to the brewery only their other locations in Rehoboth. Many beers on the list that I had not seen before. Definitely a must stop for anyone in the area.

Part of our 2020 summer road trip. Was able to sit outside observing social distancing. Cool vibe and lots of experimental beers.

Haven’t really explored the world of dogfish but just gotten into the fascination with “sour” beers. With this tho you’ll find more salt than sour but still has a pretty overall nice blend of flavor. Want it to be dialed more toward the sour end however as well as more fruity.

I bought this beer because this is an ipa one of my favorite styles and has high ratings but was disappointed because didn’t have enough flavorful dry hopped taste to it. maybe it’s just me I’ll try 90&120 min and see if it’s better.

On our visit we took the Grain to Glass tour, which was a great time. It lasted 2 hours and you got 3 small pours of beer, a small gin sample, a cocktail, pint glass, taster glass, along with a flight for before or after the tour. The facility was huge and through the tour you get to see a huge chunk of it. The tasting room was packed, which surprised me for off season in a beach town. I have two main gripes: the tasting room really needs to be bigger and have a better layout, and its unclear where to go for crowlers/growlers/vintage bottles. We got to try some great cocktails and other experimental beers which were great. Overall, no beer was below average though the large majority were not mind blowing. If I get a chance I'll likely return, its definitely worth a first visit.

Taproom at the brewery is way too small and super crowded shit show. Not a very enjoyable experience. I do like the special beer section seperate from the regular offerings.

Was able to finally visit the brewery for the first time this past weekend for the Record Store Day release. The brewery locations off premise has a completely different vibe to it since there's a restaurant and live music involved. The brewery tasting room is spacious and the bartenders are right on top of it. Brewery tours are available and the "swag shop" is well stocked. I have to hand it to DFH, they are masters of marketing and swag (if that's what your in to).
