The 16 Mile brand name dates all the way back to the early 1700's when Georgetown was still known as Pettijohn's Old Field, a small town located in central Sussex County. The brewery was 16 miles from anywhere, which is how the brewery obtained the name "16 Mile Brewery." 16 Mile Brewery became the best place for farmers, merchants, and politicians to meet up with each other to conversate and talk official business.
