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 offer great selections as a result. Two Stones Pub, serving its own 2SP brews along with an impressive collection of local, regional and national craft beers, now has four locations in the region, three 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), BBC Tavern in Greenville and Buckley's Tavern in Centreville.
Interested in a place that brews its own? Local breweries like Wilmington Brew Works, Dew Point Brewing Company, and Autumn Arch Beer Project have become local favorites for their mix of great beer, revolving food trucks, and fun, laid-back atmospheres.
Some of our taverns have a place in history. The three-hundred-year-old building that houses Jessop's Tavern in Historic New Castle, Delaware was built in 1674 and was once a barrel-making business. Cantwell's Tavern in the historic town of Odessa, Delaware was built in 1822 and once welcomed ship captains and visitors to this former port town. And Edgar Allen Poe once stayed the night at the Deer Park Tavern, a landmark in the college town of Newark, Delaware that was built in 1851.
