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.

Handles are always the best-of-the-best. Great food. Drive an hour and thirty minutes once a week for the unbelievable - most excellent - beer and pasta dishes.

Great spot for hard to get beer. Prices are high compared to some of the other similar establishments. 6 oz pours of "rarer" beers can be had for much less at Pinnochios. I don't go often as it's a bit of a drive for me. Nice spot though.

While I've not been to one of the Special Events/Release Tastings Capone's organizes I have stopped here a few times for the beer shop. This review is pretty much to echo what most other reviewers have said. This is one of the places outside of Philly to visit when looking for a "few good bottles." The selection is large. Freshness is usually good. Service is helpful and knowledgable. Value is reasonable given they are located in PA.
