Breweries, Pubs & Taverns

In an area where the "local" beers come from breweries like Dogfish Head, Troegs, Victory, Twin Lakes and 16 Mile, brew pubs take great pride in their offerings - and offer great selections as a result. Only a few years after opening its first "temple of beer" in the area, Two Stones Pub now has three locations in the region, two in Delaware and one in Kennett Square. Great beer selections can also be found at Chelsea Tavern in downtown Wilmington (where every beer Dogfish bottles goes on the menu, for as long as it lasts), and at BBC Tavern in Greenville.

Interested in a place that brews its own? Local brewery/restaurants include perennial favorites like Iron Hill Brewery and Stewart's Brewing Co. (try the Stumbling Monk, a local favorite - but don't try too many), as well as newcomers like the micro-brewery inside Argilla's Brewing Co. in Newark, Delaware.

Our taverns also take their place in history. Edgar Allen Poe once stayed the night at the Deer Park Tavern (and may have cursed it). Present-day visitors will still be able to enjoy a cozy pint on a cold winter's day at Jessop's Tavern in Historic New Castle, or at Cantwell's Tavern, operating out of a 19th-century building in Odessa.
