President and CEO of Fordham and Dominion, Jim Lutz, stated “We took a slightly different approach to R2Hop2 this year, choosing to focus on pulling in the small businesses that Kent County has to offer. Our goal with this festival is to bring the community together for one day for some great beer and great music.”
R2Hop2 is sponsored by Dover Rent-All and Central Delaware’s Habitat For Humanity. Visit www.fordhamanddominion.com to purchase tickets or for more information.

Fordham & Dominion Brewing Co. history is the story of two Delmarva craft breweries deciding to buck tradition and defy the ordinary. In 2007, Fordham and Dominion combined forces and in 2009 all brewing operations were moved to Dover, DE. The breweries jumped at the chance to challenge expectations, merging two craft breweries while maintaining their separate identities.
Fordham has been brewing since 1995 and Dominion has been brewing since 1989. Together, they brew out of Dover, Delaware. They provide weekly tours of the brewery (located at 1284 McD Dr., Dover, DE) in conjunction with samples of their beers, such as Oak Barrel Stout, Double D, Candi Belgian Tripel, Gypsy Lager and Copperhead Ale.
