Err, don't bring beer to the beach, there are plenty of places to get great beer near Rehoboth and Dewey Beaches!
As you gear up to head to the beach for July 4th weekend, you will have to fight traffic leaving town, Washington D.C., Baltimore, Wilmington, or Philadelphia, you will most likely get stuck in traffic on Route 1 outside Rehoboth Beach and Dewey Beach.
Never fear, here is your beer guide to combat road rage.
Coming down RTE 1 southbound, you will find three places to satisfy your beer needs.
The first is the Pickled Pig Pub located just past the first set of outlets in a nondescript strip mall. They bill themselves as a gastro pub; though I have never had any food there. Their sister restaurant, Pig and Fish (eat like a pig, drink like a fish) in Rehoboth Beach has good eats, so I assume they have the same. They have a really good tap and bottle selection. On my visit last week, I had three beers I never tried before, two I really liked: The Fish Paralyzer Belgian Ale from RJ Rockers (South Carolina) and St. Victorious from Victory. Their website is up-to-date with their tap and bottle offerings.
As you slowly make your way south from Pickled Pig, you will find the hard-to-miss Atlantic Liquors. It is a legendary liquor store in Delaware. The selection of every kind of liquor, beer and wine there is amazing. This is the place to buy cases of craft beer and single bottles alike. For the most part, the employees there are most helpful. Be sure to go all the way to the back to see all the cases they sell (and bombers).
Please note that their website is flash driven and not the easiest site to navigate...refer to their Facebook page instead.
