Nice pictures. Im lucky enough to live 40 mins or so from the brew pub and about an hour from the brewery. I have lived in the area for 6 years now and its amazing how much and how fast that place has grown. Met Sam on a number of occasions now and he is one incredibly nice guy. He talks to you about brewing like he is just some guy making brew in his garage. Good stuff.

I keep hearing about them growing...I know demand is bigger than supply, but if they're still growing, when are they going to bring their beers back to Indiana?!?! I was just getting into them and they had to stop distribution here...jerks.

No telling. But on top of the two major upgrades they've had since I moved here they just got a 50 acre parcel rezoned to expand even more.

SWMBO owns a condo on in Ocean City, MD so I get to hit the rehobeth brew pub every couple of weeks, but I've yet to get all the way out to the main facility.

Because our trips are always last minute "hey let's go to the beach for the weekend" the tours are always shown as completely booked.

The guy I talked to there told me that they had to pull some international distribution first, so they could distribute more in the states. Hopefully you'll be seeing the benefits of this as well as their upgrades.

I see myself going back and doing it again. Can't imagine what that place is like in the summer though, it was pretty packed now imagine in July

It is a cool place, when we lived in the DC area we made the B-O-R-I-N-G drive across the lovely state of Delaware to tour the brewery. I wish we had went over more than once.

On a more exciting note for me, I submitted my application to DFH last week for their SE Regional Sales Manager position... Not sure if I stand a chance but I'm hopeful I'll at least get a call-back, that would be a pretty sweet gig to have!

Good luck, I saw the opening and although I have experience working for a distributor, MGF / sales mgt, I'm not willing to do all that traveling. Either way great gig.
