Milton, Del. June 29, 2017 –It’s officially summer and Dogfish Head Craft Brewery is celebrating the sunny season of exploration with the launch of their newly canned ales - 60 Minute IPA, SeaQuench Ale and Flesh & Blood IPA - and the rollout of the off-centered ale inspired Coastal Delaware Ale Trail, a collection of off-the-beaten-path sites right here in our back yard.  The Trail is made up of nine compelling destinations in Southern Delaware where adventurous pathfinders can explore sites, scenes and statues in the First State.  Not all those who wander are lost; sometimes they're just searching for a great beer and good times!  Craft beer fans can quench their thirst for off-centered inspired exploration in and around Lewes, Rehoboth Beach and Milton, and can get the Dogfish Head 360 degree experience with stops at Chesapeake & Maine, a geographically-enamored seafood restaurant, The Dogfish Inn, a beer-themed hotel on the harbor, Dogfish Head Brewings & Eats, a pub serving up original beer, original, food, and original music since 1995, and Dogfish Head Craft Brewery, the production brewery.

Looking to pack in even more Dogfish Head goodness to your trip?  Book a stay at the Dogfish Inn, sign up for the Ale Trail All-INNclusive, or partake in a Sunrise Kayak Paddle – or do all three!  Located on the canal in Lewes, the inn can easily serve as your boutique basecamp for Dogfish exploration of seaside Delaware.  If you’re a day-tripper and only have a few hours but want to experience it all, sign up for the Ale Trail-All INNclusive.  Leave your car at the inn and let Dogfish coworkers chauffeur you around to the Ale Trail spots.  Departing at 9:30a and returning at 3:30p, you’ll enjoy a scenic drive to all of the sites along with a stop at Dogfish Head Brewings & Eats where you’ll get a reserved seat for beers and bites and a behind the scenes tour of the production brewery, home to the 100 and 200 barrel brewhouses, wood-aging room and state-of-the-art bottling and canning lines.   Still not enough?  Before you head out on the All-INNclusive Tour, sign up for a serene and scenic Sunrise Kayak Paddle on Lewes beach.  Enjoy self-guided paddles with kayaks and SUPS and soak in the beginning of a glorious new day.
