Campground Cocktails: Delaware Craft Beer

After a long day of lounging on our private beach or paddling around Rehoboth Bay in a kayak, toast your outdoor adventures with a cold Delaware craft beer. 

Backstage IPA | Fordham and Dominion

Fordham and Dominion has quickly become a production brewery that has been named one of the Top 50 breweries in the U.S. And, after a long day sunbathing on Massey’s Landing’s private beach, you cannot go wrong with this India Pale Ale that is easy on the tongue. It has an underlying caramel sweetness with a perfect balance of pine and citrus hop flavors. 

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.00%

90 Minute IPA | Dogfish Head

Just a day trip away in either Rehoboth or Milton, Dogfish Head, is always a good bet. Pick up a 6-pack of their IPA (largely touted as one of the best IPAs in America), 90 Minute. It rates 94 (outstanding) on Beer Advocate. Due to its sweet notes, this beer will pair best with a sweet barbeque, so try this dish: Grilled Hawaiian Barbecue Chicken Foil.

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 9.00%

Shore Break Pale Ale | 3rd Wave Brewing

Taste the shore with this ale during your campfire happy hour. This classic American pale ale is crisp, clean and light bodied. This brew is super drinkable and refreshing, perfect after a long day in the sun. 

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.00%

Hammerhead IPA | Big Oyster Brewery

Located within Fins Ale House and Raw Bar in Rehoboth Beach,  you’ll want to drive into town and pick up a growler of Big Oyster Brewery’s Hammerhead IPA.This West Coast-style IPA is brewed with six varieties of hops and has an intense citrus flavor with notes of pine. 

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.3%
