Right by the 202 exit of 95 in Wilmington, I would have thought that this place would be bigger on the beer. It is a small place with a smaler beer section. I will give them proper credit; their beer section ( other than the BMC section) is well thought out and good for the space they have. Bear Republic, Stone, the local craft regulars and some belgians, but not alot. The people that I talked to there were nice and able to answer the basic info I needed and the prices were inline with most of the other beer stores in the area. If driving by, stop in, but otherwise. you would better off driving further down 95 S to go to StateLine.

Visited the establishment while my wife was shopping at the shipyard outlets. The berr section is not really very large, but they have a nice selection. You are also able to by singles from anything except sealed giftpacks or assortments. There is a salesman stationed in the beer section to offer advice, if requested (or even if not). He's great to talk to and very helpful. Prices are on a par with other stores int he area (or in nearby states) Worth a stop if you are in the area. The selection does not rival State Line, but it is still much better than Pennsylvania.

Kreston's is located on th edge of the city of Wilmington. If you're on Rt. 202 just head east straight into Wilmington. Once you go under I-95 keep to the right and Kreston's will be ahead on the right.

The place was in shambles when I visited on 1-05-06. The beer is back on the left after you enter the store. They have a few cooler doors stocked with micros and imports. They also have about a 6 foot section of shelves with some goodies and a rack of Samuel Smiths. The selection was really picked over so I am not sure if what I saw was all that they carry, but I did see DFH, Tröegs, Victory, Allagash, Unibroue, Sam Smiths, Sam Adams and a few others. They have another store in Middletown that I need to check out to compare with this one. Hopefully it will be better.
