If you can’t get in for the tour time you wanted, stay and hang with us for a while! All guests with valid, unexpired IDs are welcome to four free samples, whether you take a tour or not. Our store is also open so you can leave here with beer (bottles or growlers), T-shirts, hats, glassware, openers and other beer drinkin’ goods. Bunyan’s Lunchbox also serves our beer-centric foods during Tasting Room hours.

Safety – please read before your tour. 

It’s a pretty laid-back scene here, but we do have some safety considerations for tour guests. First, leave the open-toed shoes and high heels at home – you’ll need close-toed shoes for the tour. Tours typically swing through the brewhouse, the cellars and the bottling line, but remember, we are a working – and growing – brewery.  Occasionally, we might have a detour or two. There are stairs along the tour, as well as a lot of walking – some outside, weather-permitting. The tour lasts about 60 Minutes. Kids are welcome too, but we will be the first to let you know it is a PG-13 show! If you're okay with that, we ask parents to carry the itty-bitty ones in a Bjorn/backpack if possible, and please, keep a close eye on your kiddies of all ages-- strollers are not permitted on the tour.

Accessibility

The Tasting Room area is entirely handicap accessible so stop by any time for four free samples, shopping, or a brat and a pint!  When it comes to tours, our tour route includes approximately 60 minutes of walking with stairs along the way.  If you find this to be a challenge, fear not!  There is still plenty going on in our Tasting Room for you to enjoy.  

We can accommodate wheelchairs on tours, but access is limited. Please contact us in advance so our Tour Team can provide you with the best experience possible! (kcompton@dogfish.com)

If you have any other concerns about visiting our tasting room or tour accessibility please contact info@dogfish.com. Big group coming our way? We’d appreciate a heads up if you plan to take a tour so that we can be ready for the extra love from our fans! Special groups, please send a note to kcompton@dogfish.com.

The Tasting Room, Lunchbox and Shop are open from 11 a.m.-7 p.m. Monday through Saturday, Sunday 12 p.m.-7 p.m.

Tour nitty gritty  - 

- Outside food is not permitted in the brewery.
- Animals are not permitted on the tour, but welcome to the tasting room if friendly around large groups (please use your discretion here, folks).

- Growlers are available for purchase and fill, but they are 'to go' only.  Growlers may not be consumed on premises.

Aside from the FREE, public beer tour, we are now offering…

Experience Goodness, From Grain to Glass

Ever wanted wanted to see beyond what we show you on our regular tour? Experience all that awesome goodness that goes into our Dogfish Head ales & spirits, and join us on a tour of delicious adventure! Meander through normally off-limit parts of the brewery to gain a richer understanding on how we make our off-centered ales & spirits, and have a few beers & a cocktail along the way! 

  • Cold Storage - breathe in the delicious smells in the huge refrigerator that stores all the REAL ingredients that go into our beers (it's cold in there, so it's brief!) 
  • Grain Handling Room - see what sets our grains apart from the rest 
  • 200 BBL Brewhouse - see how we convert all that delicious starchy grain into wort 
  • Palo & Oak Wood-Aging Room - normally locked, we'll stop in here and learn about fermentation & wood aging beer. Sample the freshest 60 Minute you've ever had and try some palo santo wood-aged beer 
  • Distillery - enjoy a keg-conditioned cocktail in our new distillery, get a primer on distillation and learn how we distill our beers into our new lineup of scratch-made spirits 
  • Sam's Stash - sample one of our vintage beers in the cage where Sam stores beers for aging...anywhere from 3-5 years! 
  • Steampunk Treehouse - ever wonder what's in that treehouse? Check it out! 

The tour costs $30 / person and we limit it to 20 people per tour. In addition to the beer + cocktails, you'll walk away with some rad swag including a Dogfish Head pint glass & shot glass. We're talking incredible value here folks. 

Tickets can be purchased here

This is a new tour for us, so we are only releasing a few weeks of tickets for now, noted below. We will soon be opening the tours up for every weekend throughout the rest of the summer so STAY TUNED! 

NOTE: in order to attend you MUST wear closed toe shoes and wear LONG PANTS. 

ANOTHER NOTE: This is a separate tour, different from the regular FREE tour we offer.

The Off-Centered Wall is back!

If you're planning a visit, please bring something – art, craft, phrase, postcard, crayon, letter, label, drawing, dried-flower arrangement, etc. - that speaks to your own perception of off-centeredness. We know that we've grown because fellow beer-evangelists have helped spread the word of off-centered ales, so we think it's really important to include everyone who helps us get the word out every day in this project. Check out the Off-Centered Wall, and make your mark, in the Tasting Room!
