Best Draft Beer Selection
CRITICS, UPSTATE | Chelsea Tavern
821 Market St., Wilmington, 575-9369
One of the mottoes at Chelsea is “nothing with a commercial,” so you won’t find Bud Light or its ilk among the 21 craft brews on tap. You will find a couple of exclusives: Chelsea Lager, produced by Victory Brewing Co. of Downingtown, Pennsylvania, and Chelsea Brown Ale, made by Dogfish Head. Craft brews such as Chimay, Sierra Nevada and local faves Twin Lakes and 16 Mile are tapped, too. Stay tuned for special beer dinners from this Market Street newbie.
CRITICS, DOWNSTATE | Dogfish Head Brewings & Eats
320 Rehoboth Ave., Rehoboth Beach, 226-2739
Now that bars across the country tap Dogfish Head beer, it’s safe to assume Rehoboth’s Dogfish Head Brewings and Eats, which has many, many taps of Dogfish Head, is exponentially better. Pull a pint of Chicory Stout, 90-Minute IPA, Aprihop, or one of the experimental exclusives such as brown sugar-infused Billy Budd.
CRITICS, OVER THE LINE | Half Moon Restaurant & Saloon
108 W. State St., Kennett Square, Pa., (610) 444-7232
Half Moon Restaurant and Saloon might be known for its creative dishes that make use of wild game. (Llama sloppy joes anyone?) But the saloon packs serious suds in its taps, from honored favorites like Guinness Stout to the hotly trending microbrews such as Bell’s Brewery Oarsman, a lemony wheat beer, and Philly’s own Yards Brewery and its Extra Special Ale. They go great with ostrich burgers.
