Thompson Island Brewing Company 

Thompson Island Brewing Company is an independent craft brewery and restaurant that celebrates the Coastal Delaware lifestyle. Located in Rehoboth Beach next to sister restaurant, Bluecoast Seafood Grill and Raw Bar, Thompson Island is named after an island in the Rehoboth Bay and is reminiscent of a beach picnic and bonfire of your childhood. A visit to Thompson Island Brewing Company will complement a day spent kayaking, paddle boarding, or relaxing on the beach with friends. The restaurant features a dining room, bar, porch, and beer garden with ping pong and bocci ball making it the perfect place to grab a quick bite, spend an afternoon with friends, or an evening out with the whole family. The beer menu showcases Thompson Island original brews along with rotating taps featuring other local breweries. Our nationally recognized culinary team draws inspiration from local farms, beaches and bays and consistently serves beautiful, simple food and fresh homemade beer.
