The newest brewery in Delaware has opened, the sixth such operation in the state.
The brewery, located in Georgetown, Sussex County, is called 16 Mile. The name comes from a book called "16 Miles from Anywhere: A History of Georgetown, Delaware," by William J. Wade.
The brewhouse is located on what historically had been called Pettijohn's Field, where the original farmhouse still stands nearly 200 years after being built. Brewery owners Chad Campbell and Brett McCrea refurbished the structure and installed the fermenting tanks there.
16 Mile's containers have a logo that represents the Breakwater Lighthouse in Lewes, DE. The brews are about 5.5% alcohol by volume. They are sold individually in 22-ounce aluminum bottles.
