Brewing & Eats
Brick Works Brewing & Eats was founded in 2016 in Smyrna, Delaware. Focused on producing the highest quality beverages and menu items, the brewpub prides itself on utilizing locally sourced ingredients for both its beers and its foods.
For years, owners Ryan Maloney and Kevin Reading spoke about working on a project together. But, the right opportunity had not yet presented itself. Shortly after the fall of 2015, a property developer in Smyrna approached Reading with a restaurant location that could not be beaten, and thus came the concept of a brewpub.
The name Brick Works was chosen because Smyrna used to house a brick-making factory. The idea of utilizing the location’s former life as the name stuck out to the partners, as they wished to emulate the art and the craft that comes along with laying bricks.
The Brick Works menu focuses on fusing local products to form an integrated dining experience. Through the brewing and pairing of the right beers with the right food preparations in a warm atmosphere, the brewpub truly prides itself on presenting the best Delaware has to offer.
