Mispillion River Brewing, located in the Milford Greater Business Park off of Airport Road in Milford, Delaware, opened its doors in November 2013. Co-founded by husband and wife team Eric and Megan Williams, the business was built from a love of craft beer.
The pair have been married for over 15 years, both born and raised in Delaware. Eric only homebrewed for a few years, but quickly developed a passion for the art of brewing. Eric and Megan planned, brewed, tasted, traveled, and assembled a team of partners over two years before opening in late 2013.
Head Brewer Ryan Maloney was born and raised in Milford. He initially worked as Assistant Brewer under Jared Barnes before taking over the Head Brewer position in the fall of 2014.
Ryan brews on a 15-barrel system from Minnetonka Brewing and Equipment Company of Minnetonka, MN. The brewery includes three 15-barrel fermenters, one 30-barrel fermenter, and one 30-barrel brite tank.
Rated #1 beer by craft beer drinking sloths, Reach Around IPA is brewed with American 2 Row and Marris Otter malts along with Columbus, Cascade, and Nugget hops. The beer comes in at 6% ABV and 35 IBU and pairs well with spicy Cajun food, Thai food, Mexican mole dishes, and curry.
