The Quest for the Holy Grain - Best Beer Retailers
Delaware

 

 

 

Cape Wine & Spirits
Coastal Hwy at Dartmouth Drive
Lewes, DE
302-644-WINE

It may say wine in the name, but there are hundreds of beers in the store. A Questor should be able to find a few new ones here. They have hundreds of different beers, sold by six-pack and case, and lots of big bottles. Cape Wine & Spirits is a nice place to stop when in the Rehoboth-Lewes region.

 

Outlet Liquors
19724 Coastal Highway
Rehoboth Beach, DE 19971
302-227-7700

Outlet Liquors is located on the busy stretch of Route 1 known as Coastal Highway, just outside of downtown Rehoboth Beach.
Outlet has all the macros, a nice selection of craft beers, and some of the imports as well.
One great feature for a Questor is that you can mix and match, making your own sixpack.
Outlet has the distinction of selling the most Dogfish Head beer of any retail store anywhere.
The staff was plentiful and helpful.
My receipt tells me that Wednesday is Ladies' Night, and that there is a free wine tasting every day from 4-6 PM.

 

Atlantic Liquors
19108 Coastal Highway
Rehoboth Beach, DE 19971
302-645-5229

Atlantic Liquors bills themselves as "the greatest liquor store in the world!" and why not?
Of course we Questors head right for the beer.
The store is half show room, half warehouse, and Atlantic carries hundreds of different brands of brew.
They have all the macros, many craft beers, and the locals...Evolution, 16 Mile, Mispillion River, and the omnipresent Dogfish Head.
As you can see from the photo, Atlantic also carries many 22 ounce and 750 mL bottles.
If you are looking for a great retailer on the shore, don't miss Atlantic Liquors!
