Prices are a little high, but the selection is worth it. Extensive selection of all beer styles and American breweries. Something for every craft beer lover. Impressive selection of limited edition and special brews as well.

Staff was very helpful in searching for and discussing different beer.

This store is awesome. There big bottle selection is the best in the area. They have priare and a lot of other small select stuff, a lot of stuff from the Shelton brothers!!! Tom who runs and takes care of the beer is so helpful you might find it hard to leave. He also stores and keeps the beer in the basement cellar with there expensive wine before it is put on the self. Tom loves beer and it shows and makes this place the go to spot for quality beer in the lewes/rehoboth area.

The best little beer outlet in the State of Delaware. The best selection of beers local and world class. I was surprised with how wide a selection is being offered and such reasonable prices. I will spend some time there studying. Shopping is always easier if the selection is wide enough.

This is a very obscure little store in the main shopping area of the old town of Lewes. You might find yourself in this section if you are staying at one of the older b&b's or hotels, or have just come off from a bike ride off Gills Neck Rd.

The store is a bit tiny, but there's a half decent beer selection here. There's a small section of bombers at the front, and one side of the store consists of mostly 6 packs and some refridgerated items. The other side of the shelf is almost exclusively Dogfish which is well represented and even includes some of their spirits and swag such as glassware and t-shirts.

Selection is not that much different than some of the larger places in the area, but of course considerably smaller. However, just looking in I did find some very obscure Cambridge Brewing Company beers here which was a big surprise.

More importantly the place is run by an older couple/family it seems and they are super nice and friendly, and are extremely helpful. I mentioned I was shocked to see the CBC in stores cause I've never seen those beers outside Massachusetes. They even had at one point Sgt. Pepper which went fast.

This is a great place to just quickly stop in and peak around, it's small enough, and if you are lucky you might find something. However, I probably wouldn't go out of my way to come to just this little store. Still if you find yourself in this small town, it's worth going in for a quick look.
