Reasons This Event Deserves a Spot on the Calendar

Reason #1: You Made It Through The Holidays In One Piece

Cheers to you for surviving the crowded shopping malls, the grueling traffic jams, the cooking around your extended family’s dietary needs, the unexpected overnight guests who had one too many and wound up crashing on your sofa, etcetera! The holidays can be somewhat mentally taxing. Fortunately, you live in tax free Delaware, a place where the beer taps runneth over and the frosted mugs of brew are abundant and affordable.


Reason #2: You Get To Be A Beer Snob For A Night

The 16 Mile Taphouse does an excellent job of pairing and infusing and this meal, while it does involve beer, exhibits elements of upscale dining. Think premium veal and roasted heirloom tomatoes beside a tiller brown ale with a hint of charred cedar and various spices. This event is to dining what vintage modern is to designing – a touch of tradition at a new, modern angle.
