I have frequented this store for 3 years and the crafter beer selection keeps getting better and better. This store reminds me of a Costco or Sams Clubs of alcohol. A majority of the store is dedicated to Wine (around 3 quarters), but they still have a pretty big section for beer and liquor (And a walk in humidor!). The beer sections has rows of cases, 12 packs, 6 packs, 22 oz. bombers, and 12 oz. singles. They also carry kegs but I have never bought one from them. The selections is plentiful as they carry beers from around the world, Macros, Belgians, and many, many American craft brews. They stock seasonals as well, and a few harder to find items pop up from time to time. They seem to know what items will sell in the store so they make sure they stock the big ones (Nugget Nectar for example). The prices are not bad as it is Delaware and its tax free, you probably cant find much better deals in the area. As far the staff goes, let me just say its probably better if you know what you want. While they are helpful at finding out whether something is in stock, you probably are not going to them for advice on which beers you want in your 6 pack.

Overall this is a good store, with a strong selection, eager employees and decent prices. A good change of pace if you are looking to expand your options.

Decent chain store with good craft beer selection, tons of Dogfish. Lots from Mid-Atlantic and some oddball imports too. Be prepared for some crowds though, aisles are very narrow and makes browsing difficult.

This place is amazing. The selections in liquor, wine and of course beer is unending. If they don't have it, it hasn't been made. Hundreds of beer selections in bottles, cans, kegs and a growler station will make any beer enthusiasts feel like he's died and gone to heaven.

The infamous Total Wine of the borderlands! Truly massive and rather busy, but mostly wine and spirits. The beer is almost like an afterthought here...

I do like their growler station, with 24 handles and good stuff including Merry Monks, Palo Santo, Brooklyn Blast... also their mix-and-match singles section, divided in style or region (odd to see "New York", "Boston" instead of "IPA", "Porter" and what not).

Nothing terribly amazing here. This is not the place for your special releases or barrel-aged brews, but it is a good place for daily beer needs at excellent prices. They do have a lot of four-packs (at room temperature unfortunately) priced nicely: $7,99 for Victory Dirtwolf, $11.99 for Burton Baton.

No help on the beer section but friendly wine folks. I prefer the NJ stores for variety, but you can't beat the prices here in DE.
