Brewery
$
“The establishment does not include a kitchen or food menu, so customers are encouraged to bring snacks and meals into the tasting room, so make sure to grab a bag of your favorite chips or pretzels. Boasting no less than 2,000 square feet of inside space and a large outdoor covered biergarten, this speak easy offers the full set of Cape May beer choices in pints, flights, and growlers. For those who wish for non-alcoholic options (e.g. designated driver’s and expectant mothers), the tasting rooms also offers its own in-house brewed root beer and ginger ale. It is a gem.”

Sublocality Level 1
“High Tech Hideaway is the same distance from Rehoboth Beach as it is to Lewes Beach. While Rehoboth Beach has Rehoboth Avenue and a sprawling commercial scene, Lewes is definitely more subdued. Parking here is metered as well. Much definitely more quiet and with a great view of ships passing the waterway to Cape May, NJ.”
