Brewery Name: Dewey Beer Company
Type of Brewery: Brewpub
Location: Dewey Beach, Delaware
Facebook: Dewey Beer Company
The Beers: While there, I was able to try three beers:
Vibe: This location is wonderful. Dewey has built the brewery into the structure in a way that doesn’t feel cramped. Sometimes you go into places that have MacGyvered the brewery and it just feels awkward: the tanks are all over, or there is equipment everywhere. This place lets you sit and enjoy a beer while appreciating all the equipment and fact that you are in a brewery. It doesn’t smell like a brewery, but it has a nice beach shack vibe to it. The front windows can open up so you feel like you’re sitting outside. It's a perfect summer drinking spot after the beach. The service is great, and the food is just right. They offer beach/pub food with just enough of a twist to keep things interesting. Nothing better than some fried oysters and an IPA after laying around all day!
There is just one negative to the location: if you are not staying in the proximity, it is really difficult to park. Not just difficult, almost impossible. The building has 4 spots total, and the area around does not have any parking to speak of. I would not have gone if I wasn’t staying so close that we could Uber cheaply. If you are seeking this brewery out, you will need to plan accordingly, because almost everywhere is reserved/permit parking. I still recommend going here, because it is truly a wonderful drinking experience, but plan wisely.
Price ($ to $$$$$): $$
Food: Yes, American pub food with a lot of local fish. They really go that extra mile to support local down to the hot sauce.
