Homestead Beer Co will open a second location this May at The Food Truck Depot in Delaware.

The new Homestead Beer Garden at The Food Truck Depot will include a 2,000 square foot taproom and ample outdoor space with two sand volleyball courts, abundant outdoor seating, and a family and pet friendly environment.

The Food Truck Depot opened in June 2019 at the site of a 150-year-old railroad freight depot in Delaware, featuring a rotating schedule of food trucks and offering entrepreneurs access to fully equipped food trucks to launch their concepts.

In addition to a lineup of Homestead’s flagship beers, which will continue to be brewed at the Heath facility, the Delaware brewery will include a one barrel pilot system that will be used both for small-batch Homestead beers and open to the public to brew on premise.

“Delaware already has three well-established and delicious breweries [Staas, Restoration Brew Worx, and Old Dog Ale House] and we’re always going to have a place for them in our lineup,” said Homestead CEO Joe Wilson in a Facebook post.

Wilson says the brewery is working on a full slate of programming for the Delaware taproom including trivia nights, D&D groups, open mic nights, yoga classes and more.

“Our central mission is to become a community gathering location,” said Wilson in a statement. “We [will] always have a Charity Tap where $1 from every pint goes to a local charity. We’re looking forward to meeting the various nonprofits in Delaware and… helping fulfill their mission.”

Homestead expects to open May 15 at The Food Truck Depot, located at 59 Potter Street in Delaware.
