Dogfish Head Brewery, Milton, Delaware
 
Chef Dolores and I decided to visit the Dogfish Head Brewery in Milton, Delaware on the way home from our tours in Dover, DE. They offer a free brewery tour which was very interesting. We sampled their 60 Minute IPA during the tour and then received tickets for a free tasting of four additional beers after the tour. 
The beer was excellent and we really enjoyed our visit. If you are going to be in the area, we highly recommend a visit to Dogfish Head. Click on the above link to reach the website.
