I've never been there personally, but the First State Brewers homebrew club meeting is being held there tonight, so I imagine they must have some sort of area for tours or tastings.

I went on a tour at Dominion, but it was in the mid 1990's. They did the tours on weekends, when there wasn't anyone else there.

Not sure when/where you're hitting the coast but if you're doing 95 to 64, Blue and Gray is Fredericksburg and Legend is in Richmond.

Stewarts is a nice brewpub that, as opposed to Dogfish, is never crowded. It is in Bear, DE. Good pub fare and nice selection of craft brews.

Further south is Rustico which is located in Alexandria, VA. 300+ beers available to please even the snobbiest beer geek.

Up the road from Newport News is Williamsburg Aleworks. Their Cafe Royale or Coffeehouse Stout is out right now. Either one is definitely worth having. Also in Williamsburg is a good beer bar, the Green Leafe. Further west of here, in Richmond, the Capitol Alehouse, and out by Charlottesville are two outstanding breweries, Devil's Backbone and Blue Mountain Brewery.

Cheers!

Outside of Dogfish there aren't any top-tier breweries in the 3 states, though places like Flying Dog and Clipper City have some interesting offerings. There are tons of smaller places that are pretty hit or miss.

Probably the best beer brewed in VA is at the Blue Mountain brewpub in Afton, just off of Rt 64 outside of Charlottesville. Williamsburg Aleworks (mentioned above) is high on that list, too.
