Located right around the corner from the University of DE. Stopped by on our way home from Baltimore. They have outside seating, facing the main strip, but it was far too hot to sit there.
Inside was a typical trendy style brewpub. Dark mahogony colored wood...the same look that so many brewpubs have fashioned themselves after. Not sure why.
The selection was quite good. They do offer a sampler to try. I believe it was 8 in all...6 or so regulars with 2 seasonals...including the Hefe (a bit heavy tasting) and a West Coast Lager (which was good...not overly hoppy, but tasty).
The raspberry wheat was excellent...the porter was fine as well (mild roasted flavor). My wife loved the Anvil Ale, an amber ale...they had a lager and a lite lager as well...along with a few others.
The waitress was a young girl, but she was clearly well trained in the beers. I hate it when brewpub bartender/waiters don't know their stuff. She was pretty good. She pointed out her favorite and took the time to explain each beer.
A good place to go for a nice selection of beers. The food was a bit expensive. The nachos were "okay." The ground beef on top didn't have too much flavor. The cheese platter was better. But, you go for the beer anyway!
