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!

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.
