Stopped by here about a month ago for the Menagerie No. 3 Redux release. This is strictly a tap room...you won't find any food here, though I know they are about to relocate to Salisbury to launch a formal brewpub, which sounds awesome. Walked in right at opening and surveyed the tap list which was (mostly) their standard fare (ESB, Lot 3, Lucky 7) along with a seasonal (Jacques) and the aforementioned Menagerie No. 3. A little bar with a TV featuring college football as well as few corner tables adorn the small taproom. A very friendly bartender walked us through the tasting and talked about some of the things Evolution has going on. We started the tasting being the only ones there, but when we finished, the place was packed. We lingered for a few more hours, chatting with locals and having some tap pours. The bartender even gave us a sneak peak of their Fall Migration, which was really cool of him. We left with a few bottles of Menagerie No. 3, some recommendations for dinner spots, and a pretty good impression of EVO overall.
The limitations on this tap room are obvious: the town it is in (Delmar) is a bit ramshackle, the size of their brewhouse limits the diversity of beers they have on tap, especially small batch/brewery only drafts, and the lack of food and the atmosphere of the tasting room don't mandate repeat visits if you live in an area where you get Evolution bottles distributed regularly. That being said, the beer is very good and the service was excellent. I'm really looking forward to making a return trip when they open a true brewpub, as I think they will knock that out of the park.
