|The Staas Beer Menu|
Staas is located in a small, unassuming little space near the main drag in Delaware. When I visited in late August, there wasn't even a sign on the outside of the place. Liz and Donald Staas (husband and wife) own and run it. Liz does most of the brewing, and Donald does most of the serving.
They brew all their beers with grain only, no extracts. Their motto "Classic styles, true to style"
Their list of beers during my visit included a Belgian Quadrupel Ale, English Extra Special Bitter (ESB) Ale, Belgian Golden Strong Ale, Pale Ale, Oatmeal Stout, American Double IPA, German Weizen, American Cream Ale, Saison Farmhouse Ale, American IPA, and Apricot Wheat Ale.

Being a Belgian beer fan, Golden Delicious and The Evangelist stood out. I absolutely loved The Evangelist and would happily have sat there drinking that quad until someone had to carry me out of the place.
If you get the chance (or better yet, if you live in or near Delaware), I can't recommend making a visit to Staas Brewing strongly enough. Before or after your visit, head around the corner to Thurman Burger's Delaware location and to the beer and homebrew shop nearby.
