The wife and I first encountered Evolution when we met the owner, John Knorr, at Alewife in Baltimore and he suggested we visit the tasting room in Delmar and a beer festival organized by his Southern Boys Concepts company on the back of SoBo Bistro in Salisbury, where we met his brother Tom and had a blast.

Evolution has grown enormously since we first visited that tiny tasting room in Delmar staffed by the brewer's wife. Their new restaurant and tasting room in Salisbury is beautiful.

I love that they have a Tasting Room and a Brewpub/Restaurant. Let the families, babies and sports fans go to the main joint, and I'll go to the tasting room and quietly enjoy a pint with no TV's. The full food menu is available, and service was very attentive.

I love their happy-hour menu, including dollar oysters and deviled eggs plus six-dollar sliders. Their menu is short but offers plenty of deliciousness. We happened to stumble upon $5 burger day, and boy what a burger this is! Incredibly rare and beautiful.

Two days later we stopped again and had their dip trio, which includes crab (of course), beer-cheese and caramelized onion, with house-made pretzels. Beautiful! And filling. It made a meal for two.

I prefer the tasting room but the brewpub does have a full bar with some good bourbons and a view of the kitchen, which I like.

The only negative, believe it or not, was the beer! Natural Selection Genus #2 (aged in 4 Roses) was blah. Prelude Black was only OK. 12 taps overall, including Incubator 3 and 4, but none of the yummy bourbon-aged stuff I was looking forward to sampling. I did enjoy their Fall Migration (Chardonnay-aged Belgian) and the regular lineup. Rise Up Stout is a beautiful thing.

I will definitely come here when I'm in Delmarva. I love Evolution.
