For the second year in a row, three friends and I saddled up a Honda Odyssey for a pilgrimage to what could be considered the microbrew capital of the world, Milton, Delaware, the home of Dogfish Head Brewery. OK maybe capital is my personal opinion, Denver might be able to truly call itself the capital, but for my palate, Dogfish is just about as good as it gets. Think Dogfish just cranks out good IPAs? Take a trip to the Weekend of Compelling Ales and Whatnot to really see what they can do.
It’s a long trip from Columbus to Milton (technically we stay in Rehoboth Beach, close to the brewpub) so it’s best to break up the roughly 525 mile trip. Along with beer geeks, we also happen to be history nerds and our road trip takes us right through Civil War battlefield country. In 2011 we visited Gettysburg and for this past year we visited Antietam National Battlefield in Sharpsburg, MD. Antietam is home to the Battle of Sharpsburg, most well known as the bloodiest single day battle in the Civil War.
The trip was a blast and I could write for hours but you know what they say… so enjoy the pictures below. You can browse all my shots from the trip at my flickr page.
Road Trip entertainment consisted of Indiana Jones and South Park
