I was invited to experience Wilmington and the Brandywine Valley area by the Greater Wilmington Convention and Visitor’s Bureau. As always, opinions are my own.
Head on over to the Christina Riverwalk along the Riverfront Wilmington and cross Constitution Yards seasonal outdoor beer garden off your Summer bucket list.
Not only do I love a good beer but I love a good beer garden even more. I’ve always been a beer girl and beer gardens just scream Summer to me. During a quick weekend getaway to Wilmington, Delaware I stumbled upon Constitution Yards and I just had to check it out.
Constitution Yards: The Details
Constitution Yards is a seasonal beer garden featuring 30,000 sq. ft of outdoor space at Justison Landing, along the Christina Riverwalk. The beer garden is an easy walk from the Riverfront. It is close to local hotels like the Westin Wilmington and popular Riverfront dining spots and amusements. It is open starting in May through September with hours Tuesday through Sunday (they are closed on Mondays).
Constitution Yards uses shipping containers as storefronts with rows of picnic tables and benches, Adirondack chairs and waterfront views.
You can find a rotating assortment of craft beers, BBQ foods, specialty Summer cocktails and fun backyard games like corn hole toss, badmington, bocce, life-size jenga and a full-sized wiffleball field.
Constitution Yards is kid and dog-friendly. Dogs must stay on a leash and within the grassy or wood-chipped area (not on the main deck).
Constitution Yards: The Vibe
As I get older (ahem … 42!), I find myself enjoying a more relaxed, laid-back lifestyle. A day or night filled with good beer, people watching and beautiful scenery sounds like the perfect way to spend a few Summer hours.
I was drawn to the area thanks to impressive ground sculptures and lush greenery. Together, they add to the welcoming ambiance of this hip, outdoor space.
I even got a chance to see one of the Riverfront’s Tall Ships pass by the beer garden. It was a beautiful day out and there was lots of activity happening along the river.
Constitution Yards: Summer Bucket List
Cheers to crossing an item, Enjoy Outdoor Beer Garden, off my Summer Bucket List. If you find yourself in the Wilmington, Delaware area from May to September (the space turns into an outdoor skating rink during the winter months) be sure to stop by this beer garden gem.
