Craft Beer & Breweries

Whether you’re a traveling craft beer aficionado or a beer loving vacationer with a taste for good suds, Wilmington and our Island beaches have gained notoriety as one of the country’s fastest growing craft beer hot spots.

Complementing our unique breweries are festivals and events and several beer-carrying bottleshops—strategically located throughout the city on the Wilmington Ale Trail—for easy access to some of the world’s finest beers and wines. Chances are you'll encounter one of our food trucks serving delicious on-the-go eats while on your brewery adventure.

So if you’re looking for a beer-based getaway, why not book it at the coast? Here are just a few of our top hops spots in the brewing community.
