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!

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.

Not here often, but seems to have gone a bit downhill in the restaurant portion. The bottle shop's selection is as great as ever, and Matt is fantastic - but the restaurant is unfortunately bogged down by poor service and food, and an often loud and obnoxious crowd at the bar, making it hard to hear yourself think (let alone speak to friends) if you're in a booth. The food at the Black Friday brunch this past year was notably poor compared to prior years. Hope to update this at a later date with a higher score.
