3rd Wave Brewing Co., established in 2012, is a micro brewery in Delmar, DE known as "The Little Town Too Big for One State." We are proudly situated 1/2 mile into Delaware in an old IGA grocery store where you will find some of the best brews on the Eastern Shore. Our brewery was previously home to Evolution Brewing Company.
We are a small but mighty brewery producing 5 house beers year round and a variety of seasonal beers which keep our 14 taps full at all times. We welcome beer drinkers of all kinds 7 days a week and have the Backyard BBQ food truck available on the weekends. We love the beach, so you will be surrounded with a surf like theme and beer names that will remind you about being at the ocean.
