Dogfish Head Brewings & Eats



You may or may not have heard that we're undergoing a refresh of the Rehoboth brewpub - how exciting! However, in order to get the (wrecking) ball rolling, our outdoor deck will be closed during construction (now through completion). That means no doggies. We know it's hard to hear, it's hard to say! We're sad to see this space go, but we're excited for all that's in store. Thanks so much for understanding!


Founder Sam Calagione calls Dogfish Head Brewings & Eats in Rehoboth Beach the soul of the company.

When the doors opened in 1995, Sam brewed two or three 10-gallon batches a day on a glorified homebrew system, making Dogfish the smallest commercial brewery in the United States. Because the batches were small, Sam could afford to indulge his off-centered whims. He’d wander into the brewpub’s kitchen and grab a handful of raisins, a cup of maple syrup or a scoop of roasted chicory. 

Next thing you know, Dogfish Head’s signature experimental style was born, and the brewpub became the home for “Original beer, original food and original music.” 

Today, you’ll find a wide selection of off-centered ales (including some from our in-house experimental brewery that you won’t find anywhere else), small-batch spirits and a menu full of specialty pizzas, seafood entrees and yummy sandwiches. Open at noon, seven days a week, year-round. See you there!
