“Beat the heat, see science and drink”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

This was a great tour, from the tree house art outside to the tour. I have toured several breweries in the US and Germany. I would rank this tops, thanks to the time spent, the understanding, and enthusiasm. A wonderful family outing for young and old. best part 4 free samples, bad part - only one non-alcoholic beverage and it did not taste good. Not sure what is was.

“Good to visit, tour just ok.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013 via mobile

Nice visit to Dogfish Head Brewery. First, the tasting room and store are great fun, and beers are great, so worth a visit with or without the tour. We did the tour recently. Having been on other microbrewery tours, this was fine, but not particularly interesting or insightful. Our guide was personable, and did share multiple things that make DFH different. Overall though, the tour could have been of any brewery, large or small, without actually seeing much happening. Modern brewery, little different, with too much stress on how they are growing and how cool the bottling line is. If you have toured elsewhere, you can skip this one and not miss much. My husband is a home brewer, and tour staff couldn't answer his specific questions.
The tasting room was great, as of course, is the beer. You can also purchase beer to drink there aside from the tour, or fill a growler to take home. Everyone was pleasant, and happy to work there. There is an onsite food truck to get a bite, and a great store.

“For beer lovers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013 via mobile

Great place to do some tastings. All employees are devoted to knowing good beer. Amateur Brewers beware No open toed shoes. You will be required to wear used clogs.

“Beer Lovers Disneyland”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013 via mobile

Truly a place beer lovers and those who don't love beer need to visit. A ton of character and full of characters. Great story and history. An in depth look on how things work inside this small, yet busy brewery. Would have enjoyed a cameo from the legendary Sam; perhaps next time.
