Visitors to the Port City may find that Wilmington’s market features beers and breweries they will never run across at home. The best place to scoop some of these up for yourself, be it limited productions or six-packs of that well-crafted IPA, is in one of our area bottle shops. Pick some up to enjoy on the back deck of your beach house or at the hotel before going out—or take some home to share with friends.
All of our bottle shops feature beers on tap and by the bottle to be enjoyed in their bars. You will find that these stores have become Wilmington locals’ neighborhood watering holes, where everyone is friendly and eager to recommend the perfect craft beer for your palate. On the weekends, some offer live music and all will be more than happy to supply samples from their draft lines—or may even be hosting a brewery event in the shop. We urge you to check out our bottle shops and see what you can find!
