Dogfish Head Brewery Opening Dogfish Inn In Lewes Delaware
The Dogfish Head Brewery is proud to announce they plan on opening The Dogfish Inn in Lewes, Delaware in 2014. Fans of the beer can plan staying there in late spring of 2014.
The 16-room Dogfish Inn will open in what is now the Vesuvio Motel. Now why would a brewery open a hotel? It only makes a lot of sense.
Every year, hundreds of thousands of craft beer fans from around the world make a pilgrimage to Dogfish Head’s coastal Delaware brewpub and brewery. For nearly a decade, we’ve helped host some of these folks at the Dogfish Head Brewmaster’s Suite at the lovely Inn at Canal Square. Our migration a few boat-lengths down the canal will give us a bigger home base dedicated to exploring all of the off-centered opportunities in this beautiful part of the state.
“We’ve already got great excitement from the Department of Tourism, Delaware Economic Development Office and the Governor’s Office for this project,” says Dogfish Founder and President Sam Calagione. “And we’re excited to work with the local agencies as well because we’re very confident that this motel will bring a lot more business not just to Dogfish but to the other local retailers and restaurateurs in Delaware.”
I guess it makes a lot of sense…
“Dogfish is more than just a brewery, and the Dogfish Inn will be more than just an inn.”
Ever have a half and half drink and think to yourself “I wish I could enjoy two craft beers at once without them mixing”. Well if you see the glass half empty, get ready to see it half full with this new hand blown dual beer glass.
