A Weekend at Dogfish Head Brewery

My fiancé and I love finding new places to visit on weekends. That’s why this past Valentine’s Day we decided to drive down to Delaware to visit Dogfish Head Brewery. We arrived late in the afternoon and checked into our room at the Dogfish Inn, which had the privacy of an inn and friendly atmosphere of a hostel. The lobby is like a modern camping lodge with a fireplace, record player, and kitchenette with freshly brewed coffee. Out back is a fireplace with ample seating where you can sit, enjoy a beer, and meet your fellow inn guests. The modern rooms come equipped with everything you need for a trip to the beach if you visit in-season, including a cooler, tote bag, and beach chairs, all adorned with the familiar Dogfish head logo. A twenty minute ride away is the Dogfish Head Brewery. When you pull up the first thing you’ll notice is the iconic steampunk treehouse. On the lawn there’s cornhole, shuffleboard, and picnic benches. Enter the taproom and try to find the self-control to avoid the gift shop and head straight to the bar for a tasting. Flesh & Blood IPA, SeaQuench Ale, Beer to Drink Music Too ‘17 and Pennsylvania Tuxedo were my top picks. For when you get the beer drunk munchies, right outside is the Food Truck cooking up all things awesome. If you stay until dinner time like we did, head to Chesapeake and Maine for some delicious seafood.

The next day we had brunch at the cutest cafe I’ve ever had the pleasure of dining in, Nectar Cafe & Juice Bar. Great for a quick bite before heading to the beach or back to the brewery. Since it was off-season, we headed around the corner for an amazing couples massage at An Ocean Retreat Day Spa. Afterwards, we headed right back to the brewery. We were lucky enough to have great weather and hang outside the brewery and enjoy a few beers. We had a late lunch at the brewery of Midas Touch Pulled Pork and Bunyan’s Reuben sandwiches with Joe’s chips from the Food Truck. After a long day at the brewery we headed to Brewing & Eats, another Dogfish Head restaurant. The awesome thing about this restaurant is that you can try some beers from their in-house experimental brewery where some famous Dogfish Head brews were born. Overall, I had a great weekend and would recommend a trip to explore all things Dogfish head to any couple, beer enthusiasts or not!
