In the spring of 2014, Dogfish Head Brewery will open a 16-room inn near its headquarters in Delaware.
The Dogfish Inn will open in downtown Lewes, at what is now the Vesuvio Motel. The location is a halfway point between Dogfish Head’s brewpub and distillery in Rehoboth Beach and its production brewery in Milton.
“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.”
