I was very excited about the prospects of visiting this place on my recent trip through eastern PA. Lots of hype on BA...
I slowly walked around the beer room, which is located behind the restaurant and has its own entrance. They have a ton of beer here!! There is beer in every conceivable place...little nooks in the walls...everywhere!
The quality of their selection is great...the best you can hope for in PA. The best thing is that everything is priced...no questions about how much something is.
But the real gem of this place is Matt the beer guy! He is super helpful and is oozing beer knowledge. I spent an extra 20 minutes there talking to him about the beer scene. Even though I only spent ~20 bucks there, Matt gave me a glass and promised to send me e-mail updates on Capone's new arrivals and events.
I hope you eastern PA BAs know how lucky you are to have a place like this in your own back yard. I will make it a point to stop by here anytime I am remotely close to Norristown!

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.
