Nice addition to the Northern DE beer scene. As mentioned below, Same owners as Pickled Pig in Rehoboth to give you an idea of what to expect.
This is in the Brookside area of Newark, formerly known as Piece of Ireland.
20 of the 24 or so taps were going. Had a bottle list about 40 deep I'd estimate.
Atmosphere was nice, basically half bar half tables with craft beer decor throughout. Music playing was Mumford & sons while I was there. They have only one small tv in the corner. Good place for discussion.
Most if not all the draft beers were available in 16oz and 8oz pours which was nice. Most the 8oz pours ranged from 2-5 dollars. all beers were served in proper glassware with some served in the actual brewery glasses.
The tap list was offering mostly pretty local stuff. DFH, Troegs, Evolution, 16 mile, Brooklyn, Ommegang, Flying Fish, Heavy Seas, North Coast, Stone, and Great Divide to name a few.
They also have a smoker and will be serving a Smoked BBQ Brunch soon.
The staff seemed to be very knowledgeable. A guy sat down at the bar next to me and asked for a Bud on draft. The staff politely told him they only serve craft beer on draft. The guy then asked what craft beer was. The bartender gave a good explanation and gave him a sample of a pale ale and a blonde ale. The guy didn't like either, so settled for a bottle of miller lite.
Food was really good. I had a Foie Gras burger, my wife had a BLT. They offer 3 types of fries. The BLT is somewhat build your own. They offer about 5-6 different cheeses and maybe 10 spreads to choose from to customize your sandwich.
With such great beer bars in SEPA, it's tough for N. Delaware to compete, but I think this place will be as close as you're gonna get. Definitely see myself frequenting this establishment.

I've been coming to this place pretty much since it opened. The food is amazing and the beer selection usually has something rare/special. I wish the owner could buy the Subway that's attached to it so 2SP could have more room. My only complaint would be the prices; some of the food and 12oz pours are on the expensive side but it's almost always high quality.

Quickly becoming the talk of the town, this gastropub generates a lot of buzz which everyone "must try". Although the narrow rectangle of a room has a low-lit cozy atmosphere, the volume of people and noise can get quite high at times. On first glance, the menu looks reasonably priced, but quickly adds up to quite a sum if you're there for appetizers, dinner, beers, and dessert with a sampler's ambition. Servers are well educated on the menu and brews, aiming to please. The cheese platter is a ritzy experience, dinner is above par for a pub, and craft brews are refreshing. 2SP's Bread pudding with caramel and icecream was one of the best I'd ever eaten. For me it's a place to go for a special night out, but would quickly hit the credit limit if frequented.
