Epitomizing the soul of Dogfish Head since 1995, Brewings & Eats originated as the smallest commercial brewery in the United States and the beginning of the Dogfish Head story. Brewing only two or three 10 gallon batches a day on a glorified homebrew system, Dogfish founder Sam Calagione had the flexibility to indulge his off-centered whims, wandering into the brewpub’s kitchen to grab handfuls of raisins, a cup of maple syrup, and even a scoop (or two) of roasted chicory.

It wasn’t long before Sam’s ever-hungry imagination lead him to experimenting with small batch vodkas, gins and rums, and in 2002 he began honing recipes and building a loyal cadre of spirit drinkers among guests. Serving up a menu of wood-grilled dishes and live music on the weekends, Brewings & Eats became known as the home of Original Beer, Original Spirits, Original Food and Original Music.

After over two decades in Rehoboth, we opened the new Brewings & Eats right next door to our original space with the same commitment to world-class food, beer, spirits and music. Our scratch-made brewpub menu features original pub fare like our Crab Corn Chowder, Seafood Tacos, House Baked Pretzel Bites and wood-grilled Indulgence Burger, alongside a selection of wood-fired pizzas from our stone hearth oven, sandwiches and tacos, soups and salads, and entrees! Phew! Stop by for a selection of off-centered ales including cask beers and Brewpub Exclusives only available at Brewings & Eats, as well as creative cocktails. We can fill up your Crowler or growler to-go!

Throughout the pub, you’ll find artwork celebrating the creative, rebellious connection of three American art forms: punk rock, hip-hop, and craft brewing. Our state-of-the-art stage hosts regional and national acts all-year-round, strengthening our sentiment that the enjoyment of a beautiful beer while listening to original music at the same time is an exponentially awesome experience.

Best takeout brewpub

I have always loved Dogfish’s brewpub. Even in the pandemic, they have done an excellent job. Had takeout dinner our last trip to the beach. Harder to order this time (compared to August 2020), as...

Thursday Night-Still Busy

We visited on a Thursday night in May 2021. We arrived at 7:18pm and was told it would be 30 minutes until a booth was available (is there ever a time that this place is not busy?). However, a booth...

Overrated and disappointing

Was looking forward to our dinner at Dogfish, as my husband is a big fan of their beer. What a disappointment. Firstly, the service was terrible. The hostess was rude and dismissive. Once seated...
