Tall rude white man at the counter verbally attacked my girlfriend, niece, and myself as soon as we entered- demanding to know the age of my niece. We are both in our late 30’s and this is a very crowded establishment AND he was already helping a customer. The shallow selection along with the disgusting service are enough to warrant avoiding this place at all costs. There is better selection and service a mile away...

A nice liquor store located in Rehoboth, DE. In addition to beer, they have a large wine and liquor selection. The craft selection is decent; nothing rare but most of the standards. The only drawback is that they do not do singled for regular 12oz bottles. On the plus side, they have growler fills. Service is friendly.

They have a great selection of beers (and, incidentally, a great selection of wines - which keeps the wife entertained while I'm perusing the brews), knowledgeable and courteous staff, and a good selection of craft beers in growlers (how often do you see THAT in a liquor store??). Check it out at

They have a good selection of seasonals and occasionals in cases or 4- or 6-packs, and their buyer (who is usually working the floor) is very helpful in alerting you to what interesting stuff is in stock.

En route to OCMD, we made our way through coastal DE and ended up at Banks. On my mind, Twin Lakes and 16 Mile.

Atmosphere: A large, beach town liquor store. Wine and booze take up most of the store with coolers dedicated to sixpacks and a few stray singles. A nice feel, but I wasn't expecting a fireplace and slippers.

Quality: Friendly staff, decent selection, well-lit and laid-out store. All enough to keep me happy.

Service: I asked about Twin Lakes and 16 Mile and was eagerly assisted. A big plus there. And then to score the Twin Lakes in cans, even better! Discussed canning and craft on the way out too. Another plus.

Selection: Beach selection, plenty of BMC. A good craft selection backing it up though. Laughing Dog, DFH, Twin Lakes, and plenty of others. The only drawback was format, generally sixers only. I grabbed my Twin Lakes sixer and continued back on my way.

Food: N/A.

Stopped in here on my way to a friend's house tonight. Surprised at the selection. They had the Ovila from SN and DFH Hellhound right up front, but all of their craft selections were in the coolers. All of the regular cases they had out were your general BMC/corona type products. Their craft selection wasn't terrible. They had a few that I haven't seen other places around the county, so that was nice. As far as any assistance goes, it was virtually non-existent, but the store was nice, clean, and well lit. Their main focus seems to be on liquor and wine. I would definitely stop in there again.

Banks Wine & Spirits is located in a little town called Millville, just west of Bethany Beach (maybe 5 miles or so). Although they store had primarily wine and liquor, I must admit that their beer selection was plentiful as well. I walked away with a 12 pack Newcastle Brown Ale that night, but they also had beers such as Widmer Hefeweizen, Shiner Bock, Sam Smith's Nut Brown Ale, Hooegarden White Ale, Hofbrau Maibock, Red Stripe, and some Chimay. I wasn't expecting all of this in such a small town liquor store, but I know what I head back to Bethany Beach that I will be stopping by Banks on the way in and on the way out.

Banks Wine and Spirits is located on Rt 26 in Millville, the town right before you come into West Bethany Beach. Its across from the Food Lion and in front of the new Super Giant. I wasn't expecting much considering I was at the beach so I was pleasantly surprised when I saw a DFH neon light in the window. The majority of the store is dedicated to wine and liquor with a moderate size beer area. There is plenty of beach type BMC, Corona, Red Stripe stuff all over the store. However, when I walked over to the beer section I was surprised to see cases of DFH product, Sam Adams Sampler 12 packs and Sierra Nevada Pale Ale cases intermingled with the BMC, Corona, Red Stripe cases on the floor. Most of the beer is located in the wall coolers. Plenty of the typical imports you would see at the beach plus some nice surprises like Samual Smith's, Wychewood, Zwiek, Peroni and Chimay. American craft beers were represented by DFH (90,60, Mida, Indian Brown, Raison and Shelter), Sam Adams samplers and sixers, Troegs Sunshine Pils and HopBack Amber, SNPA, Anchor Liberty, Allagash White and Dubbel, Brooklyn, Flying Fish, Harpoon UFO and IPA, and a few others along with the typical beach type fare. Service was non-existant expect for the 2 Eastern European girls working the register. Prices were very reasonable with DFH products going for 6.99 a sixer. Overall, not a bad selection considering the beach/resort location. If you are making you way into Bethany Beach from the West via Rt 26, Bank's is probably your best bet to find decent craft beers in the area. Not a huge selection but worth a stop.
