Best Bottled Beer Selection
CRITICS, UPSTATE | Domaine Hudson
1314 Washington St., Wilmington, 655-9463
If you don’t know Weyerbacher from Redenbacher, servers at Domaine Hudson will gladly recommend a bottle of brew from the restaurant’s list of about 80 craft beers. Into Stella Artois? Try instead a bottle of Kenyan-born Tusker Lager. Something a bit headier? Try a potent Belgian ale from brewers like Mikkeller or Brouwerij Oud Beersel.
CRITICS, DOWNSTATE | Rehoboth Ale House
15 Wilmington Ave., Rehoboth Beach, 227-2337
Don’t think you can tackle all 130 bottles of beer at the Rehoboth Ale House? Aim for 80. The Ale House’s beer club offers discounts on 80 varieties to members, along with a challenge: to knock off all 80 in one year. Regulars enjoy picking from bottles of unique brews such as Young’s Double Chocolate Stout and Wells Banana Bread Beer. You will, too.
CRITICS, OVER THE LINE | Firewaters
1110 Baltimore Pike, Concordville, Pa., (610) 459-9959
We realize Firewaters is part of the Hooters empire, but that doesn’t detract from its impressive bottled beer selection. The list is three digits large, with solid micro-, macro- and import brews from the likes of Clipper City, Franziskaner, Einbecker, our own Dogfish Head and Victory Brewing Co.’s Golden Monkey from Downingtown.
