Autumn Arch Beer Project (Newark)
Keep watch for two new thrillers: Supersaurus Rex Hazy IPA is like “a citrus, grapefruit, and pineapple bomb.” And their Working Minds Pilsner is effervescent, nimble, and light, with soft notes of pine and lemongrass, a tinge of fruitiness, and a slightly bitter body.
Big Oyster Brewery (Lewes)
There are three “Soft Serve” sours on tap this year: Orange Swirl Sour, Birthday Cake Marshmallow Sour, and Boysenberry Peach Cobbler Sour. Get ready for smooth and creamy burst of summer!
Brimming Horn Meadery (Milton)
Head on over for a taste of Brimming Horn’s new “Dragons in Paradise,” a wine kissed by the taste of dragonberries and perfect for a relaxing evening at the meadery, listening to the band and munching on a burger (or even a turkey leg!)
Crooked Hammock Brewery (Middletown and Lewes)
This DE on Tap favorite’s summer seasonal pays homage to a Delaware surf fishing rule: Make sure you are “Actively Fishing” at all times. The crisp and easy drinkin' Czech Pilsner is best enjoyed cold, on the beach with friends -- but most importantly, with a line in the water.
Dewey Beer Co. (Dewey Beach, Harbeson)
We now know the big secret behind their “Secret Machine” smoothie: Ripe strawberries and raspberries that combine to create a cool and refreshing lemonade delight. Also keep watch for their triple IPA release called Soft Blue Skies, full of big pineapple and grapefruit aromatics.
Dew Point Brewing Co. (Yorklyn)
Every had a honey beer? The “Opportunity Knocks” honey mango brew is not only tasty, but part of the proceeds benefit charity.
Liquid Alchemy Beverages (Wilmington)
They’ve just released an amazing concoction called “Double Barrel,” made with two meads that have been aged in a gin barrel for three years.
Revelation Craft Brewing (Rehoboth Beach)
Fans rave about the return of “Grateful Nation,” a triple-hopped IPA that pairs oh-so-well with pizza from the on-site DaNizza Wood Fired Pizza.
Stewart's Brewing Co. (Bear)
As the folks at Stewart’s say, “It’s way too hot outside, we may have a solution.” Their solution: “Blueberry Monk,” so light, so crisp, and just fruity enough to be fun.
