Fordham / Old Dominion Brewery is a fun social getaway in Dover. Your experience will begin when you greeted by the friendly staff and patrons as you arrive. The bar area is small but allows for mixed conversations and makes it easy to meet new people. Now the important part....The Beer. They really have something for everyone; from light to... More

We were on the wine and ale trail and this was going to be our last stop for the day. We arrived with plenty of time to do the 6pm tour they offer on Fridays. We walked in and they turned us away because they were hosting a private event for one of the local colleges. Normally I wouldn't mind,... More

We purchased this brewery tour and tasting via Groupon, and visited on a Saturday afternoon. On arrival you have to check in, then you're given a 4 oz. souvenir glass for tasting and four beer tickets. You're encouraged to start sampling the beers prior to the start of the tour, and to bring a full glass on tour with you.... More

I didn't have high expectations of this brewery tour having never heard of or tried any of their beers before. The tour and tasting were a lot of fun and the atmosphere was great. You pay a small fee for the tour and get 3 samples and a tasting glass or pint glass. They were unfortunately out of the summer... More

For the price of the tour, you get samples of beer. Great way to find out which beers are better than others and are to your liking. Great tour - especially for a first timer.

They carry several beers that I enjoy and my wife and grandchildren LOVE their root beer. However, I wish that they would fill growlers.

A great brewery, but the people really made it special. Lauren is amazing, by far the most engaging and friendly and welcoming person we had the pleasure of meeting along our tour of Brewery Tours. If I am even close to the Dover area, I am emailing Lauren and stopping by the brewery. Drinking beer was taken to a whole... More

A small brewery with friendly staff. there is a fee for the tour, I think $15. I thought at first that it seemed hi for a few minute tour and to promote your product; however it includes several nice size samples and two 16 oz beer glasses. We left very pleased and met some great people.

I recently took my family on the Fordham Brewing tour. First off, it's a great value--Only $5 per person for 5+ 4-oz (?) glasses of beer and a pint to take home. The tour was interesting and informative, but you can tell the real energy is in allowing customers to try the different ales and having a good time. The... More
