Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant
Cozy up to a table along Wilmington’s Riverfront and dig into the Chesapeake-Style Crab Cakes with Old Bay-seasoned fries and a sweet corn salad—dressed with vinaigrette made with Iron Hill’s White Iron Wit beer, and (naturally) accompanied by a glass of this pale, unfiltered Belgian-style wheat beer.
Stitch House Brewery
Hmmm, what to have with this Ladybug Rosé Lager? Here’s a winner: A caprese sandwich stuffed with tomato, mozzarella, fresh torn basil and olive oil on ciabatta.
Argilla Brewing Company at Pietro's Pizza
Pizza is king at this micobrewery, so go for the Argilla White Pizza with mozzarella, ricotta, fresh basil and chopped garlic, paired with a Razzburree—a refreshingly tart wheat beer conditioned on mounds of red ripe raspberries.
Stewart’s Brewing Co.
Who could ask for more fulfilling encounter than the mild, refreshing Governor’s Golden Ale and a plate of the Triple Razorback—pork shoulder braised in Golden Ale, topped with tavern ham and hickory bacon, served with barbecue sauce and melted cheddar on a steak roll.
Brick Works Brewing & Eats
The subtle notes of citrus in the Krautrock Kolsch play well with the Herb-Grilled Salmon, served with sweet corn succotash and green tomato relish.
Painted Stave Distilling
Raise a glass of a perfectly crafted cocktail made with Off the Hoof scrapple infused vodka and keep your pork-inspired pallet happy at Maverick Texas BBQ, just blocks away, with a sampler platter with ribs and pulled pork. Note – the eatery is only open Friday through Sunday.
Big Oyster Brewery
If you’re in the mood for big tastes, go for the broad-shouldered Big Oyster Stout, and enjoy how its dark, deep accents work so well with the Bacon-Wrapped Meatloaf.
Dogfish Head Brewings and Eats
When dining at Dogfish, a hoppy, happy IPA is obligatory, especially when it’s paired with their wood-grilled Flat Iron Steak with house-cut fries and herb butter.
Dewey Beer Co.
Sometimes, a lighter touch is just what you need. Try their sweet-and-tart Pomegranate Lemonade brew, and dig in to that Cold Crab Taco with edamame, cilantro, pickled ginger and wasabi.
Salted Vines Vineyard and Winery
Sometimes, just a little nibble is all you need. So grab a glass of wine and ask for the Chocolate Plate, a sampling of handmade local treats. Or, check out the Cheese Plate, which includes four varieties of Chesapeake Bay Farms cheeses, garnished with crackers and grapes.
