You probably have enjoyed visiting the local Dogfish Head Alehouses in Fairfax, Falls Church or Gaithersburg for happy hour... but you can also head over to Delaware to witness beer's glorious origins.
Dogfish Head is known for their 60-, 90- and 120-minute IPAs. They distribute to D.C., Northern Virginia, Maryland and Pennsylvania. The brewery -- complete with tours available -- is located at 6 Cannery Village Blvd. in Milton, Del.. about 106 miles east of D.C. and on the way to Lewes or Rehoboth.
The Steampunk Treehouse was a sculpture first exhibited at the 2007 Burning Man festival in Nevada. Its new home is on the grounds of Dogfish Head Brewery.
During a free guided tour of the brewery, you'll walk past the three large wooden tanks. The brewhouse, packaging hall and gift shop (naturally) are also on the tour, which are limited to 35 people each. You can make reservations online here, or calling 888-8DOGFISH. Note: You must wear close-toed shoes on the tour.
Elsewhere in Delaware, the Dogfish Head Brewpub in Rehoboth Beach also offers free tours of the pub and experimental brewery, every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at 4:30 p.m. You can just show up for this one.
Dogfish Head Brewery is known for their non-traditional ingredients like raisins and maple syrup. In Rehoboth, they brew their Brewpub Exclusive beers about once a month.
The Rehoboth Beach distillery (320 Rehoboth Ave., Rehoboth Beach, Del.) is small, but packs a punch with their vodka, gin and rum concoctions.
