Delaware Wine and Ale Trail Gets Four New Locations

Posted:
 DOVER, Del. - The Delaware Wine and Ale Trail is adding four new locations. According to the Delaware Tourism Office, two breweries and two distilleries are being added to the popular tourism attraction.

With the new additions, the Delaware Tourism Office says it will expand the trail's scope and appeal to keep pace with the First State's growing market for hand-crafted beverages.

In keeping with the trail's changing composition, the Delaware Tourism Office says it is adopting a new name for the four-year-old attraction, which will now be known as the "Delaware Beer, Wine and Spirits Trail." Designed to give travelers a convenient and fun way to explore the many tours and tastings offered by these businesses, the tourism office says the trail also offers a "passport" system that allows participants to track their travels and potentially earn prizes.

The new attractions on the trail include the Delaware Distilling Company in Rehoboth Beach, Painted Stave Distilling in Smyrna, mispillion River Brewing Company in Milford, and Argilla Brewing Company @ Pietro's Pizza in Newark.

"By adding the new locations, we have given travelers some great new reasons to explore the Delaware Beer, Wine and Spirits Trail," said Linda Parkowski, Director of the Delaware Tourism Office. "Even if you've traveled the trail before, you'll want to add these new attractions to your must-see list."

While it's part of a lineup that includes four other visitor trails - the History, Culinary, Geocaching and Outdoor trails - the Beer, Wine and Spirits Trail is among the most popular of the Delaware Tourism Office's creations, she said.

Parkowski said that she expects the trail to boost interest in traveling to Delaware, especially as the Tourism Office's efforts to market the trail through social media and advertising gain traction. Parkowski noted that since travelers can enjoy the Trail's attractions year-round, it's effective in attracting off-season travelers and boosting business during a time facilities can use it most.

To participate in the trail, visitors simply go to the website VisitDelaware.com/bwst, which includes listings of locations and instructions on downloading and completing the passport. The website is also designed to help visitors find lodging and locate other nearby attractions.
