We stopped here while visiting multiple breweries along the Delaware Beer, Wine, and Spirits Trail. $5 per person seemed more than worth it for the generously sized samples and pint glass. My favorite beer was the Octoberfest. We planned on going on the tour, but they seemed caught up with serving us all at the bar that the "scheduled" tour... More

Fordham and Old Dominion Brewing is a small but delicious brewing company in Dover, DE. The tour itself would be rather quick (it's a small brewery, people,) but the tour guides and staff make it a storytelling adventure. The tasting before and/or after the tour is a delicious experience. You're given four tickets when you purchase your tour, and each... More

Very short and enjoyable tour, you wont be bored with too many facts just how they brew this great product. Knowledgeable bartenders and staff make it a good day. 4 cups of beer and a glass for $5.00, plus the tour, absolutly worth the time and money

The $5 you pay for the tour is more than worth it. You get to sample four beers of your choice while you listen to your guide who'll take you around and tell you all about the brewing process. My group had Jeff, who was friendly and knowledgeable, and was very clear in his explanations (unlike some brewery tours I've... More

You can't beat the price, especially if you get a Groupon deal. The tour is interesting and short, we aren't at one of the big mahoffs here and that's a good thing! The taproom is where the fun is! The employees are very knowledgeable regarding the various brews on tap and are fun. Look at for different events held here;... More

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
