What We Love Most About the Dogfish Head Beer Hotel Might Surprise You

September 3, 2014 at 1:39 PM | by | Comments (0)

Back in July, one of the east coast's best craft brewers, Dogfish Head, opened a beer-themed hotel halfway between its brewpub in Rehoboth Beach and production brewery in Milton, DE.

With 16-rooms and a modest, motel-like exterior, the property is not going to turn any heads on its first impression. In fact, you don't really even get a sense of the "beer theme" when looking at photos. The hotel's custom offerings of bottle openers and beer soap don't make a lot of noise.

But, as it goes with beer, you really don't know what you have until you dive in and taste it. Maybe the Dogfish Head Hotel isn't the loudest aesthetically speaking, but we love the way it has chosen to go about its business. And would you believe that the thing we love most is its lack of flair or, in this case, its lack of narcissism? Can you believe that what we respect most about the Dogfish Head Hotel is that it doesn't even serve its own beer?

The Beers Are On Hotel Max (Plus a Few More Hotels that Offer Fine Brews)

Where: 620 Stewart Street [map], Seattle, WA, United States, 98101

We do love the free wine Happy Hour trend that has been catching on over the past few years -- thank you Kimpton, Affinia, Andaz, et al. But while wine is more than fine, sometimes we just crave an ice cold brewski.

Hotel Max in Seattle, home to many a craft brewery, is inviting guests to kick back and relax with hand crafted cold one during a daily complimentary craft beer hour in its lobby. The hotel will be pouring full pints for thirsty guests every evening from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. All guests need to do to get their free beer is show a valid photo ID to prove they are of age as well as their hotel key card (guess that means you can't just sneak in off the street; shame).

Mmm...Obatzda At Andaz Wall Street

  Site Where: 75 Wall Street [map], New York, NY, United States, 10005

Here's another hotel trying on someone else's culture for size: Andaz Wall Street is celebrating Oktoberfest (now thru October 1) with a specially-curated menu of German traditional dishes.

Knowing how much the hotel looooves to host large drunken wedding parties, this feels like a match made in heaven. If heaven is a waterfront luxury hotel whose kitchen was experimenting with morsels like radi, obatzda (above), spaetzle, and smoked trout.
