What You'll Get
A brewery, like the beach, is a relaxing oasis that allows tired travelers to bask in golden hues, frolic in frothy spumes, and get in splash fights with siblings. Savor sudsy fun with today’s Groupon: for $5, you get two brewery tour tickets, souvenir glasses, and beer tastings at Fordham & Old Dominion Brewing Company in Dover (a $10 value).
Fordham Brewery and Old Dominion Brewing Company have combined frothy forces to offer all pedigrees of beer drinkers the education and enjoyment of brewing artisanal beers. Groups of 25 or less are shepherded through the brewery for a 30–45-minute tour through the entire brewing process. Tour members are given a 6-ounce tasting glass and five tokens to fill the glass during the tour. As you and your fellow barley buffs learn about different types of beers, your taste buds and taste frenemies will be busy examining an eclectic selection of malted mixtures. Ramble through bright tanks and bottling lines and get introduced to earthy hops and R2Hop2, the brewery's astromech hop percolator. The stroll ends in the tasting room, where guests can sample signature lagers, stouts, pale ales, potent root beers, pilsners, and seasonal brews. Two take-home souvenir pint glasses, stamped with the brewery's majestic logo, toddles home alongside satisfied tour patrons.
