Delaware is becoming quite the place for craft beer. Fordham & Dominion, as they are now known, is one of the pioneers. They give an informative and not overly long tour with your tasting, and if you just want to drink some of their beers, they won't force you to take the tour -smile-. There is a nice range of...

Great beer and ever better people. Sarah gave me the best brewery tour I've ever had! Pin-ups and brew; anything better? I think not!

Great tasting beer and friendly and inviting staff. You can not go wrong with this place. Check their schedule online. If they don't have a food truck, bring a snack.

My husband and I enjoy going to breweries and wineries for tastings and have been to almost every one in the Delaware area. This is one of our favorites. We love most of the beers here - especially the oak barrel stout and cherry blossom lager. We also enjoy the bartenders' mix of beer/pop - sounds weird, but very delicious.

We stopped on our layover in Dover to OBX. we. do a lot of breweries in our travels and are usually letdown with the beer compared to our Vermont stuff. Not so here! Some really fine brews that are right up there with some of the best. What really made it nice was your crew. Great, friendly people who love... More

Amazing CHEESEtober Fest! We got the VIP tickets, unlimited beer with our own taps, food, and separate toilets = totally worth it. It was a very nice event. If you don't get there early, bring chairs to sit. This may become an annual event!

We stopped here to do a tasting, but managed to time it right to catch a tour of the brewery. As with most brewery tours, there isn't a whole lot to see, but they explain the process and all the things they do there. Jess, our guide, was fabulous! She was funny and informative. We were able to taste five... More

We stopped here while visiting multiple breweries along the Delaware Beer, Wine, and Spirits Trail. $5 per person seemed more than worth it for the generously sized samples and pint glass. My favorite beer was the Octoberfest. We planned on going on the tour, but they seemed caught up with serving us all at the bar that the "scheduled" tour... More

Fordham and Old Dominion Brewing is a small but delicious brewing company in Dover, DE. The tour itself would be rather quick (it's a small brewery, people,) but the tour guides and staff make it a storytelling adventure. The tasting before and/or after the tour is a delicious experience. You're given four tickets when you purchase your tour, and each... More
