DELMAR, Del.- If you are a true beer drinker, then you may already be familiar with local breweries Evolution Craft Brewing Company, 16 Mile Brewery and Dogfish Head Craft Brewery.

But if you head on over to Delmar, Del., you will find Lori Clough and Suellen Vickers welcoming the public to Delmarva's newest brewery.

The love for beer is the motivation behind the new brewery.

3rd Wave Brewing Co. will open  Saturday in the same building on North Bi-State Boulevard where Evolution used to be located. 

"We struck when the opportunity presented itself and we just stepped into it. It wasn't a plan,"said Clough, who quit her job last week and now manages the brewery.

The owners said they wanted 3rd Wave to bring the love of a good brew back to a place that has always made beer.

The women said the motivation started with a simple hobby.

"Home brewing for about 18 months with one of my best friends and it became a dream," said Vickers.

"You'll see our kettle here. It's where most of the magic happens for the beer," said John Panasiewicz, a master brewer the women hired from Pennsylvania. "Then we will keg and carbonate the beer, throw it into the cooler and you will drink it on tap at the bar."

Vickers said she and Clough do not see any of the other breweries as competition. In fact, she said one of them has already offered to lend a hand with the opening.

"He says, 'I will come down and I will help you brew that first batch with you,'" Vickers said.

It's a trend the business owners said that's quickly making it's way to the region, something they hope will not only continue to gain popularity in Delmar, but across all of Delmarva.

Clough said she and Vickers plan to expand the brewerym which includes bottling and distributing in Delmarva and Pennsylvania.

The brewery will hold a ribbon cutting beginning at noon.
