Mispillion River Brewing Opens!

Eric Williams was all smiles greeting patrons at the Grand Opening November 15, 2013

I'm a bit late writing about this event but happy to report to those who may not know that Milford, Delaware now has its very own Micro Brewery - Mispillion River Brewing! After two years of planning and searching for the right location, partners Eric and Megan Williams, Don and Marti Brooks and Scott and Tammy Perlot, with brewmaster Jared Barnes, and assistant brewmaster Ryan Maloney recently realized their dream and welcomed the public to its 5,000-square-foot facility equipped with a full-service brewery and tasting room on Nov. 15, 2013. The air was filled with excitement and the tasting room was filled with beer lovers from near and far to Congratulate Eric and company as they unveiled their carefully crafted beers and took visitors on tours of the Brewery.

I admit that I am not knowledgeable about the beer brewing process but if you visit their website you'll learn everything you need to know. And better yet, visit the Tasting Room, open Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 4-11pm. They are located at 255 Mullet Run Street in Milford, off of Airport Road. Click here for a map of their location. Call for more information 302-491-6623 or like/follow them on Facebook and Twitter.

I'm not going to attempt to tell you what all of these pieces of equipment are - but I will tell you that Eric's wife Megan led tours of the Brewery - and she really knows her hops! It was really very nice to see Mark Carter (of Dogfish Head Brewery in Milton) and his wife Nicole at the Opening, turning out to support this new brewery. Very Nice. Something you don't often see, an established business encouraging a competitor to do well. Dogfish also has a great reputation of being community minded and this was proof of it. Well done.

Mispillion River Brewery offers a tasty variety of beers, with year-round (i.e. Greenway IPA, Chipped Tooth, Schooner, Naughty B and Doublin Chin) seasonal offerings (i.e. Praetor Imperial Porter, Beach Bum Joe and Citron) and "tasting room exclusives" with names like Aussie Summer, Oatmeal Raisin Cookie (my favorite) and Das Popo. And that's just the beginning. 

Bob and I stopped by last week to listen to live music and I tried their samplers. I must admit too that I am more of a wine drinker than a beer drinker but these brews are just so much fun to try. They also had arranged for a BBQ truck outside where patrons could get some pulled pork or ribs while enjoying the atmosphere of this terrific addition to the city of Milford! So Check it out - and drink local!!
The logo is cool and the t-shirts well designed. The sweetest spot in the back of house is a small square of concrete with the little handprints of the Williams' children pressed into it.
