Although I think the couple of Evolution brews I've sampled thus far are somewhat pedestrian, the Public House in Salisbury is an incredible establishment for dining out, while being engrossed by the craft beer scene. If you have a beer lover or are a beer lover and are in the area, its definitely worth a visit. Great facility.

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.
