Not matter the season, there is always something brewing in Delaware. A trip from Massey’s Landing to one of these spots will have you sampling some amazing local flavors!
2100 Coastal Hwy, Dewey Beach
Talk about a name that’s easy to remember! Dewey Beer Co. Nestled near some of Dewey’s famous bars (The Starboard, Bottle & Cork and Hammerheads) and only a block away from the beach, it’s the perfect brewery for a day trip with friends.
Plus, your beer will travel 30 feet or less from the barrel it was brewed in to your glass, which means it will be fresh.
We’ll be cheersing with the Blonde’s Blonde or the Sour Grouch.
Dewey Pro-Tip: If you have a designated driver instead of a cab/Uber/Lyft, let them know street parking is free during the off-season and also free Mon./Tues./Wed. from 5-11 PM in the summer.
32191 Nassau Rd. #5, Lewes
Beach Time Distilling is known for its tasty small batch hand-crafted spirits ranging from rum, gin, and vodka to speciality mixtures. The distillery is known for using local ingredient as often as possible.
We highly recommend sampling the Beach Java or the Beach Fin Gin.
32165 Winery Way, Lewes
Love award winning wine? Nassau Valley Vineyards is Delaware’s first and only award winning winery. The vineyard uses regionally grown fruit to produce the 14 wines in their product line. Plus, one Sundays during the summer, they have a wonderful farmer’s market.
What we’re sipping at Nassau: Laurel’s Red
Lewes Pro-Tip: Make a day in Lewes. Beach Time Distilling and Nassau Valley are less than one mile apart.
19269 Coastal Hwy. Rehoboth Beach
3 words: great happy hour. The brewery is located within Fins Ale House and Raw Bar, so you’ll be able to enjoy fresh seafood while sampling beachy beers.
Stellar Beverages: Hammerhead IPA and Solar Power
18693 Highway One, Rehoboth Beach
Not only does this distillery offer a multitude of fun weekday events (Bingo Monday, anyone?), you’ll sample rums, gins, whiskeys or vodkas plus 20 unique infused vodkas and countless tasty cocktails.
We recommend the Spiced Rum
320 Rehoboth Ave., Rehoboth Beach
Dogfish is quickly becoming one of the most recognizable craft breweries in the Mid-Atlantic. Home for this powerhouse brewery is on the main shopping and entertainment strip in Rehoboth. The pub offers tasty food, hard-to-find Dogfish beer, live music, tastings and much more!
Dogfish Must-Trys: 60-Minute IPA, American Beauty & Sea Quench Ale
Rehoboth Pro-Tip: Massey’s Landing offers shuttle service to and from the beach. Speak with a front desk attendant or click here.
