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

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.
