Definitely a spot worth visiting if you’re in Wilmington. A house re-modeled as a store, Fermental offers a unique ambiance you won’t find anywhere else and is one you won’t soon forget.
The selection is top-shelf for any beer aficionado. Can be a bit pricey if you have one of those overly-sophisticated palates, but the quality and variety more than make up for it. The staff is extremely knowledgeable in their stock and do a very good job at providing information and offering free samples without being pushy.
Though I haven’t attended any of their weekly soirees, I’m looking forward to going to their live band shows out back that feature local bands and free wine and beer tasting.
The only real drawback is its location. Market Street is extremely busy at times and the parking situation leaves much to be desired, but sometimes you have to take what you can get and make it work.
Fermental makes it work. It is more than worth the traffic and potential parking headache to partake in their vast selection of exquisite beer. If you’re in Wilmington and love beer, Fermental is a MUST see. You won’t regret it.

Not your typical beer & wine shop. This place will quickly become a hidden gem in the Ogden area of Wilmington. I was able to grab a six-pack, enjoy a beer with good company and pick up some hops/brew supplies to experiment with back home.
The shop was once a house so there are a few different rooms to explore and lounge around. It has a family-style charm, complete with a bathroom guest book to leave your mark.
The selection was impressive and unique. I tried some hop-flavored candy I had never experienced and noticed that they had wine-flavored ice cream. Tons of beers I had never tried but the staff had some great recommendations. This is a great after-work hangout spot, or just a great place to go talk good beer/wine.
