Delaware is a small state, but it is a giant when it comes to the craft beer scene. With household names like Dogfish Head and regional favorites making their home in Southern Delaware, this region is a must visit for any craft beer lover.
Whether you're a craft brew obsessive or you just like to crack open a cold one, you'll love Pints in Paradise, our craft beer festival. Enjoy beautiful views of the Rehoboth Bay while sampling local craft beer right here at Massey's Landing. Don't wait around to get your tickets though, this event is sure to sell out!
You could even make a whole trip out of it. Come for Pints in Paradise and then visit a few of our favorite southern Delaware breweries.
This Milton-based brewery was a pioneer in the craft beer scene and now you can find their brews across the nation. They've become known for infusing their beers with innovative flavors like spruce, lemongrass and even scrapple.
There's nothing like going right to the source though. You can visit their brewery and distillery in Milton for tours or tastings any day of the week. One of the perks to visiting the brewery is that you can sample exclusive beers that you won't find anywhere else.
Mispillion River Brewing
Take a break from the coast to visit the picturesque town of Milford. Tucked off the main drag you'll find Mispillion River Brewing. With beer names like Weiss City and Not Today Satan, you can imagine that this is a fun place to hangout. Their ever-changing tap list ranges from IPAs to sours and stouts.
Stop by the tasting room for a pint or call in advance to arrange a tour.
3rd Wave Brewing Company
Just across the state line from Maryland, 3rd Wave Brewing sits in the little town of Delmar. This surf themed brewery might look small from the outside, but they're producing some brews with big flavor.
They have a great line up of standards and an interesting rotation of seasonal beers. Their Shore Break pale ale is a great go to beer, but their fruited beers are a fun choice if you want something different. You can drop in for a tasting seven days a week or stop by on a Saturday for a tour.
Big Oyster Brewery
Come for the interesting beers, stay for the delicious food and cozy atmosphere at this big red barn. They have 16 taps so their offerings are constantly rotating between standards like the Hammerhead IPA and off the wall brews flavored with everything from chocolate to oranges and vanilla. They keep things interesting with special releases too.
Stop by the tasting room for a pint, enjoy a meal paired with some great craft beer or take a behind the scenes tour and see how the magic happens.
Iron Hill Brewery and Restaurant
Iron Hill has independent breweries up and down the east coast and in 2018 they opened a location in Rehoboth Beach. Each location has a brewery in house, so you're getting the freshest draft beer possible. They're also serving up delicious pub grub.
You can lounge on the patio with a pint, grab a drink at the bar or enjoy a meal in their welcoming dining room.
