April 6th – Beer’s Eve

Twas the night before Beer Day and all through Greater Wilm, not a brewer was stirring . . . not even to film (you know – Tik Tok, Instagram, etc.). On this day, all brewers will be nestled asleep in their beds, with visions of new recipes dancing in their heads. We know while they sleep, they won’t make a peep for when they wake, they will jump out of bed and scream Happy Beer Day!!! for sure. Now what size should we pour?

Where to Find Some Good Pours

April 7th – Beer Day!

We may not be the best poets, but we are pretty good at sharing amazing Greater Wilmington locations. (It’s not all us though, we have so many to choose from!) In celebration of National Beer Day, we’ve listed a few local breweries perfect for a happy hour visit or to incorporate into a full day brew tour! In an area where the "local" beers come from breweries like Dogfish Head, Troegs, Yards Brewing Company and Victory Brewing Co., brew pubs take great pride in their offerings and produce excellent microbrews a result. These three local breweries are a hop, skip and a jump from downtown Wilmington and leave locals wanting more with each visit:

  1. Bellefonte Brewing Company is a Wilmington nano brewery and tap room offering more than 14 local brews. The laid-back atmosphere is the perfect setting for beer passionate clientele. Enjoy the taproom, but check back soon for food truck offerings and other special events. Oh! Did we mention they’re dog friendly?

 

  1. Wilmington Brew Works is the first production brewery in Delaware’s largest city since 1955. Housed in a 100-year-old former laboratory in the old 9th Ward, the brewery continues to keep the spirit alive with new and innovative ales, lagers, sours, and ciders. The family-friendly taproom has plenty of indoor and outdoor seating so kick back and enjoy a drink with friends - old and new.

 

  1. Liquid Alchemy Beverages is Delaware's first and only craft meadery and the only one of its kind in New Castle County. This family owned and operated business uses the finest ingredients including as many locally sourced products as possible. Modern techniques and technology make for an exceptionally tasting, uniquely combined beverage calling your name!
