Wilmington Beer Week is back for its 7th annual celebration of craft beer!
The weeklong celebration runs November 6th though 11th and will showcase over 60 different craft brews at participating venues in the Greater Wilmington area. In addition to featuring events specific to their restaurant, the venues will offer a Beer Week Flight Special, entitling guests to sample three different craft beers for a set price. Look for the latest and greatest creations from local Delaware brewers, like 16 Mile, 2SP, Dogfish Head, Evolution, Fordham, Iron Hill, Mispillion, Third Wave, and Twin Lakes, and from the top regional breweries, including Flying Fish, Heavy Seas, Lancaster, Stoudts, Troegs, Victory and Yards.
This year’s craft beer destinations include the popular Riverfront destination, Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant, and our favorite downtown restaurants Chelsea Tavern and Ernest & Scott Taproom. All week long Chelsea Tavern and Ernest & Scott Taproom will offer pre fixe three-course menus paired with specialty Beer Week brews. Chelsea Tavern’s pre fixe meals are $15 for lunch and $30 for dinner and include Beer Week featured pints for $4 or flights for $10. Ernest & Scott’s pre fixe menu is $30 all day long and includes Beer Week featured pints for 50% off their regular price. Chelsea Tavern is also hosting a special Flight Club for Beer Week on Tuesday, November 7, from 5:30 to 7:30 PM. Shmaltz Brewing owner, Jeremy Cowan, will attend with five specialty brews to accompany a “Jew-esque” finger food buffet. Later this week, on Thursday, November 9, at 6PM, Matt Hasson from Tröegs Independent Brewing will host a Fall Harvest Dinner at Ernest & Scott Taproom featuring a pre-dinner beer tasting and hors d’oeuvres hour followed by a 4-course beer paired dinner.
