Best selection in Northern Delaware?/

I recently moved to West Chester and I'm looking for a beer store with a wide selection of domestic craft beers, a good import selection would be great too, but not absolutely necessary. I've been to Total Wine in Claymont and while the selection was good, I was a little underwhelmed compared to other stores of theirs in other states. Any other great stores out there close to the PA border?

  1. I've always heard good things about State Line in Maryland, right on the DE border.

    1. I ALWAYS go to State Line when on 95. It's worth a detour, it's 5 minutes off the highway, no more. Imports out the wazoo, including hard to find stuff. A good selection of American micros as well. Join their club and you get a 10% discount card.

        Thanks for the help. The website looks good, a little further than I was hoping for, but I'll take a run down this weekend and see.

      2. Hockessin Wine & Spirits is just outside of Avondale & Kennett Square, PA - probably about 25-30 min. from WC (there's a map and info on their Web site, There's also a Total Wine & More on Naaman's Rd in Claymont (from WC, take RT 202S to RT 92/Naaman's Rd and make a L onto 92). For restaurants, check out Domaine Hudson wine bar & eatery in downtown Wilmington, DE (; they just introduced a 20+ craft beer menu.
