Dogfish Head’s Rehoboth Brewpub is Denied Expansion Zoning Variance
If you’ve ever visited Dogfish Head’s Rehoboth brewpub, you can definitely vouch for its awesomeness, but also the fact that it’s kind of small. Try getting in there on a Saturday night in summer, and you’re more than likely SOL, or super squished. Even in the off-season that place gets pretty packed. So what’s Dogfish Head to do? Try to expand of course. Except nope, not going to happen, as their zoning variance was rejected. Their intent was to tear down their current 8,000 sq ft spot and up it to a 9,000 sq ft spot which is double what the current zoning allows along with structural improvements and an updated redesign. They thought they had it on lock as they current already have a variance. They plan to appeal the ruling, so we’ll see what happens as time goes by.
Victory Brewing Summer Love Cans are HERE
Just in time for a long weekend of outside activities, grilling, and the unofficial kick-off to summer, Victory’s summer seasonal, Summer Love, has arrived in cans. Summer Love is an easy-drinking lightly hopped American Blonde Ale that captures the essence of summer perfectly. You’ll get an earthy smell with light floral hop flavors balanced by German malts that’s sessionable at 5.2%. Go forth and find your summer love.
It’s almost time for a long weekend, barbecues, fireworks — the works. It kicks off what is set to be quite the busy summer for me, though I’m hoping to make the most of downtime, hiking, spending time on the back patio with Andy and taking in some sun.
Sunday is Andy’s birthday! I asked him what he wants to do, and he said “yard work.” Something is afoot. We’ll see. We have zero plans for Sunday and Monday, but maybe he’ll do some fishing or motorcycle riding, and we can get some ice cream.
