Volunteer Brewing Co. opened its doors during the Peach Festival in August of 2017, becoming the first brewery in Middletown, Delaware. Founded by Kevin and Dawn Schatz, Volunteer's mission is to brew superior, small batch, craft brewed ales.
The brewery was named “Volunteer” as a reflection of the organization’s commitment to stay involved in the local Middletown-Odessa-Townsend community, in addition to serving craft brewed beers that is. Customers and staff are focused on volunteer opportunities that contribute to improving the town and helping to maintain the small community feel that is core to Middletown’s history.
Located in a renovated two-car garage on the alley behind the firehouse, Volunteer Brewing Co. is the smallest brewery in Delaware.
