Hey guys,

This Saturday I will be driving down from New Jersey to Newport News, Virginia. I'll be going through Delaware, the Maryland coast/southern counties, and then the Virginia coast. Does anyone know of any breweries or brewpubs where me and my better half can check out? Either a pub for some food and brew or a tour? I tried doing some initial searching and the most I found was St. Georges Brewing Co which is right near us....any other suggestions would be appreciated!

Cheers!

Ahhh...I always love DFH but I've been there a few times including this past weekend. Thanks a lot, though.

Clipper City, also called Heavy Seas in Baltimore if you wanna make a detour.

clipper city, flying dog, clay pipe, duclaw, frederick... There are several more. None of these are super-convenient assuming you're coming down 95. Clipper city might be the most direct?

If you end up taking a Western route and are interested at all in wine, there are several good wineries. Boordy is one of my favorites out there, but there are several others that make good wine.

The Brewer's Art in Baltimore and Franklin's in Hyattsville are both MD brewpubs and are near 95.

I thought Flying Dog wasn't doing tours right now?

In DE, Dogfish is the big one, but for breweries there's also Evolution, Fordham/Old Dominion, Twin Lakes, & 16 Mile. If you want a brewpub you have Iron Hill and Stewarts as options as well.

Sounds like you are not coming down I95 but in Columbia, MD there is Victoria Gastro Pub. From what I hear the beer list in incredible as well as the food. Here's the web link.
http://victoriagastropub.com/

I'm definitely going to check this place out and real soon.

Can you tour Fordham/Dominion? I know they are in Dover but I have never heard whether or not there is a pub or a brewery tour.
