This narrow slip of a state sure packs a lot into its 35-mile width. Dogfish Head produces enough beer annually for each resident to down two bottles a day every day and rises to the top of a number of lists: best bar, best craft brewery, and best beer. The popular craft beer has been getting more recognition over a number of years. Look to the coast for some of the best dive bars and crab dishes in the state. 


Over the course of the past year we’ve honored everything from its best hot dogs and brunch spot to its best bar and craft beer in our comprehensive and wide-ranging lists and rankings, compiled through extensive research and with input from a wide network of site contributors, bloggers, journalists, and chefs. We’ve compiled these into individual slideshows celebrating the best food and drink in every state, and you can find our Delaware gallery here
