Grab a seat at the bar or relax on the outdoor patio at Big Chill Surf Cantina with one of its five margaritas or a bomb cocktail. (The Pisco Mule is as delicious as it sounds.) This tiny Rehoboth hangout boasts a laid-back vibe that is perfect for happy hour. The beer list features plenty of local favorites and a handful of lesser-known flavors. Don’t be shy—the friendly bartenders are always willing to let you sample a few.
