Kent, Sussex and New Castle County Alumni Clubs are gearing up to offer a Pints & Paddles event down in Milton!

First, we'll kayak the Broadkill River for 90-120 minutes. Then we'll land at the Dogfish Head brewery where we'll get to taste some of Delaware's most famous craft beer — including some of their experimental beers — and get a tour of the facility. Participants will get a Dogfish Head pint glass.

We only have 50 spots available and will require two separate tours once at Dogfish Head. We will have both single and tandem kayaks for the adventure.

Reserve your spot today!

Refund deadline is June 30, 2017.
