16 Mile Brewery Tours - Add This to Your Paddling or Bicycling Adventure

Think you can paddle 16 miles?  Well if you can't, we'll do a couple miles, then take you to the 16 Mile Brewery in Georgetown, Delaware.

Discover the 16 Mile Tradition
fountainFrom the coastal beaches of Delaware to Maryland's Eastern Shore, residents and visitors alike are discovering the latest local tradition - 16 Mile Brewing Company. As Delaware's newest microbrewery, 16 Mile concentrates on creating full-bodied ales with the clean honest taste of hops and malted barley. Each hand-crafted recipe features smooth flavors, free from distracting additives and bitterness. The simple, yet distinctive tastes of 16 Mile ales truly complement the delicious flavors of Delmarva.

16 Mile Brewing Company is owned and operated by Chad Campbell and Brett McCrea, Delaware natives who understand that this area and its residents have a unique story to tell. From the selection of the company name to the innovative designs on its 100% aluminum bottles, 16 Mile salutes the rich history and heritage of Delaware. Look for familiar historical landmarks on its bottles of Amber Sun Ale, Old Court Ale, and Blues' Golden Ale.

16 Mile ales are available on draft and in bottles at restaurants, pubs and package stores throughout Delaware and the Eastern Shore. If you're a Sussex County resident or just passing through our great state, you are always welcome to visit the 16 Mile brewery. Look for the sign just one mile south of the circle in historic Georgetown. Come inside and sample the rugged simplicity of 16 Mile brews today.
