The Habit for Humanity 5k is starts and finishes here and it is a great location. The event provides beer tasting for adults and unlimited root beer. Tours available also. They host a number of events here or stop in for a tasting of their great beers. They are community oriented and always great service. Plenty of parking available.

Their tour is very educational and you really get a first hand look at the brewing process. They make good beers and have built a reputation for their festival/live music events that are also kid friendly. My only two regrets would be that you can't get a growler filled there and they stopped making Hop Mountain, which was my favorite... More

My husband and I had a groupon for the crooked hammock in Lewes, but he forgot to make a reservation, so we went here instead. I highly recommend to this any local fans of draft beer. $5 gets you a nice tasting of 4 beers. You can pick whichever samples you want. After you have a couple tastes the tour... More

Stopped in on a Wednesday evening shortly after they opened and was the only one there. Was greeted by two guys behind the bar (sorry, don't remember their names) and spent a good amount of time shooting the breeze and trying some beer. $5 for 4 tastings as well as a tour. Even though I was the only one there,... More

Had the chance to stop in the other day to kill time. The brewery is ~3 miles from downtown Dover. Was easy to get to and plenty of parking. The 2 staff members there were great to talk with and very knowledgeable of beer and the process behind it. 10 beers on tap to try. $5 gets you 4 tastings... More

Delaware is becoming quite the place for craft beer. Fordham & Dominion, as they are now known, is one of the pioneers. They give an informative and not overly long tour with your tasting, and if you just want to drink some of their beers, they won't force you to take the tour -smile-. There is a nice range of...

Great beer and ever better people. Sarah gave me the best brewery tour I've ever had! Pin-ups and brew; anything better? I think not!

Great tasting beer and friendly and inviting staff. You can not go wrong with this place. Check their schedule online. If they don't have a food truck, bring a snack.

My husband and I enjoy going to breweries and wineries for tastings and have been to almost every one in the Delaware area. This is one of our favorites. We love most of the beers here - especially the oak barrel stout and cherry blossom lager. We also enjoy the bartenders' mix of beer/pop - sounds weird, but very delicious.

We stopped on our layover in Dover to OBX. we. do a lot of breweries in our travels and are usually letdown with the beer compared to our Vermont stuff. Not so here! Some really fine brews that are right up there with some of the best. What really made it nice was your crew. Great, friendly people who love... More
