Renovation of the new Dogfish Inn in downtown Lewes is nearly complete in time for a July opening. Lighthouse Construction is finishing major changes that have transformed the former Vesuvio Motel into a modern inn overlooking the Lewes-Rehoboth Canal at the corner of Gills Neck and Savannah roads.

The 16-room motel will offer yet another way for avid brewery fans to immerse themselves in all things Dogfish Head. Equidistanct from the Milton brewery and the Rehoboth Beach brewpub, the new inn will serve as a home base for beer-loving Cape Region visitors beginning later this summer.
