Dogfish Head Plans to Buy Motel in Lewes


LEWES, Del. – The Milton-based brewery Dogfish Head plans to buy a motel in downtown Lewes.

The brewery plans to buy the Vesuvio Motel, which it will remodel and reopen as the Dogfish Inn. The inn will be a 16-room motel.

Dogfish Head founder Sam Calagione says the motel complements other brewery ventures, including distilling rum and vodka and selling a line of beer-infused foods.

Calagione says having a Dogfish-branded motel will help bring "the opinion makers and the leaders in the world of craft beer here."

According to a trade group, Dogfish Head was the 13th largest craft brewery in the U.S. in 2012 by sales volume and the 20th biggest domestic brewery overall.

Editor's note: There is a family connection between the owners of Dogfish Head and WBOC.
