1 of 3 regular stops when I'm in the Rehoboth Beach area. Small selection of cold single bottles as well as 6 packs and cases. Probably the best selection of warm cases in the area.
Nice selection of bombers and seasonals as well. Service could be better but they're always friendly at the register. They need the guys on the floor to pick up the pace and offer to help find what you're looking for.
Prices are usually about 50 cents to a dollar higher than Cape Wine and Spirits but I would still say that they are reasonable. If they cut down on their macro selection they could do even better with their craft selection, but then again, couldn't everyone?

When I am up in Rehoboth beach, this is a place I always stop by. I've been coming here for years and while there are more warehouse places this place has never steered me wrong.
A large place with a pretty good selection. They seem to offer more six packs and cases of craft, and the bomber selection is a bit low. There are a few singles at times but too far and few between. Also the Belgian imports are a bit low as well.
Service is really solid, and it's also a place I come to always pick up Greenville Pale Ale. Being that it's also Delaware no sales taxes it's always very reasonable.

I never saw the hype around Atlantic Liquors until I read some of the reviews and realized I had not gone in the back where the beer was. I have been going here for years and just perusing the coolers. Sure I once found a bottle of Thumbsucker and scored a case of Brooklyn BCS at a great price but had no idea what was around the corner.
Large, cavernous warehouse type place. No service whatsoever though I didnt really need it. All the usual suspects beer wise-Stone, DFH, Victory, locals EVO and 16 Mile, Brooklyn, a few Yards, etc. Not much in the way of Belgians or UK beers.
Worth a stop to see what you might happen upon. I really prefer Cape Wine and Spirits up the road. If in the area do both-there are some subtle differences.
Edit 10/20/13-Was in here again this weekend and really walked out being impressed. They seemed to have practically everything that is available in DE and there was plenty of help for the asking. Meanwhile the last time I was in Cape up the road they have shifted their beer to another part of the store and it seems a bit disorganized. Oh well-I tend to see myself in here more often then Cape nowadays.

A - A large warehouse dedicated to providing people liquid libations while they're on vacation... A volume store that is awkwardly laid out and poorly organized... There is some festive music piped over the speakers and this seems to be the place where the local party goers frequent...
Q - Once you get past the layout and organization issues, this isn't a bad store... Lots of stuff and good prices... Overall a decent store...
Ser - Do to the lack of organization noted above, I need some assistance in tracking down a sixer of Twin Lakes Greenville Pale Ale... The employee I asked was knowledgeable, courteous, and efficient...
Sel - Largest selection I've seen in the Rehoboth Beach area... A wide array locals, micros, imports, etc... Limited singles, lots of sixers / cases...
Val - It appeared that prices were a tad lower than other local stores ($0.75ish per sixer) and much cheaper than the PA prices I'm accustomed to.
Overall, a decent store that will do nicely while in a pinch on vacation...

Midway between DFH's brewpub and Outlet Liquors. You think I'm not gonna swing by?
Atmosphere: More of a store than Outlet. Beer is relegated to the far corner in both cooler and warm. Liquor and wine surround the beer. There are a few single end units with DFH.
Quality: Well-lit and clean, the store was doing brisk business. Good selection too.
Service: No service. Not many people were wandering the store and I wasn't looking for any help. Per my MO, that's a 3.0.
Selection: Good selection. Plenty of BMC but the warm aisle had a good line-up of craft. DFH, Southern Tier and Sierra Nevada were plentiful. Evolution (ESB) was there too. This is the beach, so there were many more macro offerings. I was looking for 16 Mile and left empty handed.

Easy to find on Rt. 1 just before exit to Rehoboth Avenue. Stopped here to pick up some canned beers before hitting the beach. The store was a zoo as there seemed to be 100 people in the parking lot and the store.
We didn't spend much time here due to the crowds and the fact the store is not laid out very well. A cart would have been tough to navigate through the crowds. The cold beers were easy to get to near the front registers. They had a decent selection of local beers. We picked up some cans of Greenville Pale Ale and 21st Amendment Brew Free or Die IPA.
Didn't ask for any help or seek any service, but I didn't see anybody working except at the registers. Located close to the beach, prices were a bit higher than other stores off the beaten path.

This was my favorite stop out of the "big" three stores in the area.
We stopped in on a Saturday night and the place was packed. This is my only complaint...the place was big, but cramped in a way. Their layout, of everything, was a little disorganized.
With that out of the way, the beer was tucked back in the back with cases, six packs, and singles. Almost each case on display had a six pack sitting on top of it. I liked the idea. There were two small coolers with singles. Towards the front of the store there were cold six packs.
The selection was the best at the beach. There were locals; 16 Mile, DogFish Head, Twin Lakes, Evolution. And then there were the others; Ellicottville, Stone, Rogue, Troegs, Victory, Magic Hat, RJ Rockers, Sierra Nevada, Southern Tier, Allagash, Kona, 21st Amendment, Abita, Boulder, BrewDog, Chimay. Just a wide array of breweries.
Service was also really good. Not only did I receive attention, but so did everyone else around. I don't think I saw an employee just standing around. They were always talking to a customer.
This will be my first stop when I come back to the area.

Stopped here while in DE. It's probably a mile or two away from DFH Brewings and Eats. The place is huge so you can't miss it.
At first all you see is a small cooler of beer up front surrounded by liquor. I looked around nearby and that seemed to be the entirety of the selection. Looking in the cooler, not a ton of local stuff was popping out at me. WWS was available though, and all the other regular or current bottled DFH offerings if that's what you want (though with the brewery a 10 min drive away, you're better off buying there).
We decided to check out the liquor just because, and suddenly we round a blind corner and you see a huge warehouse with boxes, nay, pallets of alcohol stacked up. There's a decent area for beer, though a ton of it was macro or Yuengling.
I wound up buying a bottle of Allagash Black (for something like $15, though I later saw this down south for $9.99 - damnit!). They had some of the interesting higher abv Brewdog stuff, but it was all $18+ a 12oz bottle.
Service was essentially non-existent. If I hadn't been willing to peruse the liquor I'd have walked out never knowing there was a large contingency of beer in the back.
Overall not a bad place to get a fix or browse some of the local or regionally distributed beer, but the prices are high.
