Dogfish Head brewery has announced plans to open a hotel, the Dogfish Inn, sometime in or around spring 2014.
Each room will have a mini-fridge that you can fill along with beer glasses and a bottle opener on the wall. This is a trend that I think will accelerate in the coming years. Craft Beer tourism is big. McMenamin’s runs a few boutique hotels and resorts. (I even had my wedding reception at one!) Rogue has their own Beer and Breakfast. And Stone has been toying with the idea as well. Much like a casino wanting it’s whales on the premises, a brewery wants its fans close by too.
Maybe you can stay the night and try their Moondust beer.
