DogFish Head Brewings and Eats-DE

DogFish Head Brewing and Eats
320 Rehoboth Ave
Rehoboth Beach, DE 19971

As seen on -Brew Masters  

Dogfish Head Brewing & Eats brings its off centered strong on beer philosophy to their food as well. The menu at this place is nuts. A foodies dream. Rosemary french fries with bacon mayo, beer braised short ribs, mako shark sandwich, antelope sliders, and even bacon chocolate cheesecake. One of the real benefits to dining at the brewery is the availability of microbrewed beer selections, varieties that are special small batches only available at the restaurant. The beer is plentiful, and there are enough styles to get you drunk before you've even tried half of them. They probably had 20 of their beers on tap. Not knowing what the majority of them were I had a sampler. I appreciate the attention to detail and just over the top brewing that DogFish stands for but I don't drink enough to really enjoy it. This place was just over the top and really fun. Rehoboth Beach, De is awesome for a vacation and I plan on returning. Don't forget to pick up your DogFish swag on the way out and hit up the discontinued bottle cooler for some of your old favorite bottles you can't get anymore.
 The top bun is actually a giant onion ring covered in bacon!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The actually brewery is about 20mins away. They have tours so check the schedule on their website.

Yates Cider Mill-MI

Yates Cider Mill

As seen on

The best cider I've had thus far.Yates is a cool cider mill that  has alot of stuff to do. In the fall there is alot to do outside. They have kid-friendly arts/crafts things you can do, there is a river with a very nice walking path through the woods where you can experience the fall colors... and then of course there is the mind-blowingly delicious cider+donuts pumping out of this place. Seriously, the cider is exploding with flavor all over my face as we speak. The donuts are warm and soft when you get them, unlike the cold, stale donuts I've received at OTHER CIDER MILLS. They also make apple butter, apple salsa, cookies, muffins... all sorts of stuff. I figured growing up in New York going to multiple cider mills every year, since a small child, that NY was the apple capital of the world. Boy was I wrong. Michigan has better cider then we do sorry to say it guys. Next time I'm in town ill be sure to go back.
