Delaware is hoping to distill the popularity of its growing craft beverage industry into tourism dollars.

The Delaware Tourism Office announced Tuesday that it’s increasing the number of craft breweries, wineries and spirit distillers on its Beer, Wine and Spirits Trail from 15 to 25.  

The primary purpose of the trail is to attract tourists to the state. But one of the secondary benefits is Delawareans enjoy the trail and visit these sites as well, according to State tourism director Linda Parkowski.


The expansion of Delaware’s Beer, Wine and Spirits Trail is in response to the growing popularity of the craft beverage industry in America.


It will now include a cidery and meadery for the first time.   


The tourism office is also set to launch a new phone app this summer to help you better locate stops on the trail.  


Tourism added $3 billion to Delaware’s gross domestic product in 2014.
