It’s not just you: Delaware’s craft beer scene (with a side of mead) has exploded over the past year, with new breweries and brew houses popping up, from Market Street in Wilmington to Coastal Highway in Dewey Beach.
Delaware on Tap, a mobile app launched by the Delaware Tourism Office a year ago, has added eight new locations in 12 months:
- 38-75 Brewing, Dewey Beach
- Brimming Horn Meadery, Milton
- Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant, Rehoboth Beach
- Midnight Oil Brewing Company, Newark
- Stitch House Brewery, Wilmington
- Volunteer Brewing Company, Middletown
- Wilmington Brew Works, Wilmington
The app offers a list of 32 craft beer and mead locations in Delaware, with directions, links and even a built-in Uber feature, so you can try all the beers and with none of the intoxicated driving. It also features a built-in “passport” that allows you to check-in when you visit a location, with a reward once you reach 10 check-ins.
Pro tip: It’s also a nice little travel-planning app, with a calendar of craft brew events, nearby dining and accommodations, tours and a list of other attractions, parks and museums.
