With the craft beer industry growing, especially in Delaware, it makes sense that there's an organization dedicated to unifying the industry. This weekend, the organization has planned an event that connects craft brewers with ale lovers, giving people a glimpse into Delaware's six breweries.


With the craft beer industry growing, especially in Delaware, it makes sense that there's an organization dedicated to unifying the industry. The Delaware Brewers Guild has six member breweries and this weekend, DBG is celebrating the state's brewers with an event that brings ale lovers together for tasting and talking all things craft beer related.

EVENT HIGHLIGHTS

1 Support homegrown breweries

All six guild members will be there. Check out the recipes of breweries like Fordham and Dominion in Dover, Milton's Dogfish Head Brewing Company, 16 Mile Brewing Company in Georgetown, Wilmington's Iron Hill Brewery, Stewart's Brewing Company from Bear and Twin Lakes Brewing Company in Greenville.

And, in the spirit of creative collaboration, the companies are banding together to create a master beer with a little something from the whole state. Event-goers even get to weigh in on what the collaboration should be called.

2 Food and fun, too

It's not all beer all the time at Brews by the Bay, though. Bring some beach blankets and chairs, kick back and relax. Listen to live music provided by Reedo and The Front Porch Offering and sample the fare of restaurants like Striper Bites, Behany Blues and On The Rocks Bar and Grill.

3 Saving lives only costs $5 per person

The Delaware Brewers Guild doesn't want anyone to drink and drive. So, they're making it easy to bring along a designated driver. All DD's get in for $5. That's right, $5 and your non-drinking buddy can still go to the event, sample the fare and hang out. Of course, some gas money would probably be appreciated, too.
