I visited Capone's for the first time, even though it has been in my back yard for some time now. It wasn't until I came to BA that I learned of his stud (yes I said stud) selection in the beer store portion of his restaurant.
I was lucky enough to be free the day they were having a beer event, so I made it in for lunch just as the kegs were tapped. I walked right in and stepped up to the bar. It is fairly tight in there, but homey. I wish PA would pass the anti smoking law already and it would have been perfect. Anyway, I looked at the kegs on tap and immediately Matt came over to me and introduced himself as I did the same. I relayed that I was a BAer and his face lit up. Now onto the review.
No where else in PA could I ever expect to find Stone 11th Ann. beer on tap, Capone's had it. In fact, they had a superb draft selection, too many to even try them all. Great craft beers, each one of them. I ordered a chicken sandwich and soup for lunch to go along with my pints. Food was very good, soup was outstanding. Service was excellent and they let you even try some of the beer without having to pay for them. For a sandwich, soup, and 2 beers my bill was $12.00. Very reasonable.
Then I finished up with a visit to the beer store. Bottles galore with stuff not found anywhere else in my area. I was in heaven. Matt camps back in the beer store so he is there to help you out. As said before, he answers questions and even recommends things to try. What a great guy with great beer. Needless to say $ 60 later I walked out with close to 36 beers.
My overall experience was just great and I plan on visiting often.

I have been here a handful of times. Their selection is one of the best outside of the city for its location. The food looks great but I haven't tried it yet. The main reason I go is for the bottle shop in the back. The quality and quantity is amazing. I easily spend 30 minutes just looking. The owner is very cool, friendly and always willing to help satisfy your taste. This place is highly recommended.

This place knew what craft beer was before the late 2000's revolution. This place is bar none best take out beer selection and has been for the past decade, maybe even longer (I've only been able to legally drink 8 years from now). Now this place won't have everything you're looking for, but it will have lots, and reasonably priced too. Coming from another state you might be upset, but in Pennsylvania and with the stringent alcohol laws this is THE BEST option for individual bottles, craft 6 and four packs and bombers for a place that is not a chain. The owner is very knowledge and a nice guy that will help you find what you need.
