These stops along the DE on Tap trail have worked to offer some decidedly inventive non-alcoholic beverages, ranging from “near beer” to handcrafted sodas. Sounds like a sweet time to download the DE on Tap app, hit the road, and pop one open yourself.

Fordham and Dominion Brewing Sodas

Garys Smoothies

Autumn Arch Beer Project, Newark
Most people know that some of the state’s top food trucks stop here, but more people are learning that there’s also some tasty craft root beer here for those times when the taste buds demand something sweet.

Dogfish Head Brewery, Milton
The delightfully off-centered brewery has released the new “Lemon Quest,” their first-ever non-alcoholic wheat brew. At just 90 calories a can, the brew packs in plenty of flavor: It’s brewed with real lemon puree, blueberry juice, acai berries, and monk fruit.

Fordham and Dominion, Dover
You can order homemade soda in the tap room here: Take your pick of Root Beer, Ginger Ale, Creamy Orange and Black Cherry. Bonus: All are caffeine free!

Gary's Dewey Beach Grill / 38-75 Brewing, Dewey Beach
Gary’s cools things down on sunny summer days with a great selection of fruit smoothies, made with low-fat yogurt and your choice of fruit: Strawberry, Mango, Banana, Blueberry and Pineapple.

Harvest Ridge Winery, Marydel
This gorgeous winery also offers Fordham and Dominion’s line of handcrafted sodas.

Painted Stave Distilling, Smyrna.
Considering that this cool distillery is also the home base of the delicious Taco Jardin taco truck, a thirst-quenching beverage may be in order. Pick up a bottle of fruity Mexican-style sodas from the truck and see how amazing a soda can be.

Stewart’s Brewing Co., Bear
The food is simply fabulous at this popular brewpub, but they also feature hand-crafted, non-alcoholic Blueberry Soda, Cream Soda and Ginger Beer.

Thompson Island Brewing Company, Rehoboth Beach
This fun beach brewery encourages visitors to explore the lively flavors of their handcrafted sodas, branded as Matt’s Artisanal Soda Co. Flavors include Root Beer, Cherry Lime Thyme, Lemon Berry and Black and White (cracked black pepper, white balsamic vinegar, fresh bay leaves and palm sugar).
