BREWERIES IN DELAWARE
Blue Earl Brewing
210 Artisan Drive, Smyrna, DE
Last visit: August 2018
Nice: Large taproom with lots of music memorabilia- mainly jazz and blues
Very friendly staff (and customers!)
The full gamut of tasty beers with some bottles to-go.
Stupid: Hard to find. GPS will take you to the right area but the brewery itself is somewhat hidden. Go toward the Walmart Distribution Center and you'll find it.
Notes: Ask the staff where to go. I almost went to a "bad" bar in a "bad" part of Dover. They suggested a great place!
Favorite beer: Honeysuckle Rose (Belgian blonde)
Food: No food served.
Rating: 🍺🍺 Definitely go
Dogfish Head Craft Brewery
6 Cannery Village Center, Milton, DE
Last visit: December 2017
Nice: Large facility with an awesome metal treehouse in front, which they use for meetings and special tours.
Delicious beers of many variations.
The free hour-long tour is very interesting and includes four tasting samples in the taproom.
Stupid: Most of what's on-tap can be found in stores but revisit ones you haven't had in a while!
Notes: Their brewpub (Brewings & Eats) in downtown Rehoboth is very good as well.
Favorite beer: Palo Santo Marron (wood-aged imperial brown)
Food: A food truck is usually on-site.
Rating: 🍺🍺 Definitely go.
