4. Old Dominion Brewing
Location: Dover, Del.
Seriously, people? Nothing against Old Dominion, but it serves food only for special events, such as its Oyster Stout release in September (which includes an oyster bar) and Cheesetoberfest beer-fueled grilled cheese competition in October. Secondly, it's a combination of the remnants of Virginia-based Old Dominion Brewing and Maryland's Fordham Brewing, the latter of which only moved to Delaware in 2003. The two consolidated operations in 2009, and their beers -- including Oak Barrel Stout (6.1% ABV), Octoberfest Maerzen (6% ABV), Monk Czech (5.2%) and Double D IPA (9%) ABV -- are overall outstanding. Calling them a brewpub is a stretch at best, though, and at worst just an undeserved dig at the Dogfish Head brewpub in Rehoboth Beach. Go here and enjoy the beer, but check the calendar if you don't want to leave hungry.
