We read in Ale Street News that this place would be one of the only locations serving Lancaster Brewing's Shoo Fly Porter. We just happened to be visiting the area at the time, so we sought this place out.

Sadly, the porter was not in yet, so we ended up checking out their bottle store. I didn't eat there, but they had quite an impressive list of tap and bottled beers.

Friendly staff, the owner was actually speaking with me when I was looking thru their bottle store. Here is what I will say, while hardly the largest selection I have even seen, it might have been the most impressive. They had bottles from micros never to be seen in our area (at least not in NJ) including Three Floyds, Russian River, Belles, everything from Founders...wow!

I ended up buying a 22oz Red ale from Three Floyds for $13. Not cheap, but to get something like that it is understood you need to pay more.

Can't wait until I am in the area again, I will go there and have a few drinks, stick around a bit longer. A really nice and unexpected find!

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.
