Walking into this place was the biggest surprise. From the outside, it looks like your standard small BMC distributor in the suburbs. However, inside, they have such a great selection and a lot of the harder to find beers in the area. I even found [and promptly cleaned them out of] Cantillon here!
The staff are very helpful, and have made mention of being on beer advocate and reading up on what people want and what is new, and which beers are highly rated.
When something is new, they try their hardest to get it, and usually succeed. They also have a facebook page that will update you weekly on their new arrivals.
Prices are also unbeatable.

Also, if you're a cigar fan (which i'm not) they have a walk-in humidor with a huge selection (not sure about quality though as I know nothing about them) and another separate, closed off room for smoking - with upholstered chairs, tables, etc. fancy fancy.

This place, and really the guys that run it, are the best. Super helpful, careful, considerate, knowledgeable about their product. Amazing selection and good prices. I almost don't want more people hearing about my new "secret" spot but thats not good karma. Definitely check it out if you're in the area.

I'll start with the best. This store is all about quality and customer service. Nearly every time I enter the store I'm welcomed and almost immediately approached to see if I need any assistance, which I typically do, due to the high quality of their selection. Of the beers you'll find here, they are all simply the best examples of either that style, brewery and region. Beer selection is top notch. Very helpful people there. Good chit chat. Amazing selection, there's tons of stuff.

This is a dream come true for me! This place has a pretty good selection of crafts and imports. Smart staff, friendly, this is my place to go for new beers that I have not tried. There are always in-store events. Very good compared to most stores in the area. There is almost always some new stuff in the store.

Great store. Great staff. Great selection. They have a regular supply of some of the best beers in the world. Rare finds don't tend to last very long here. Great Selection of Craft Beers. Service is top notch. They are very courteous. Absolutely amazing. I highly recommend this place.

This store is located right off West Chester Pike, near Providence road.

The parking lot is small, the outside of the store looks like an average Pennsylvania beer distributer.

When you step into the store you smell the fine cigars, not bad.

After walking past the register there is a large wall of craft beer to the left and right. Cases stacked on top of cases of seasonal and limited releases. Past that on the left is a wall full of super rare and limited stuff that honestly I have yet to find elsewhere. This is the only store that has Russian River Consecration and Supplication all day. They also have stuff like Anchorage brewing, and another dozen or so sought after cases of bombers.

The problem is there are no prices on anything. You have to keep asking what this or that costs, and I have seen them charge an extra 5$ on cases of stuff I've bought elsewhere and know the price. Trying to squeeze an extra buck out of me. Also if they have a seasonal or desirable beer in stock they will not tell you over the phone. You must show up and inquire about what they have.

It also gets pretty warm in the summer and many of the rare cases are stored on the top shelf 10 feet in the air where the temperature is pushing 90 degrees all day.

If you are in the area definitely stop in and browse, but be knowledgeable and cautious of old out of date or improperly stored cases.

Coming from a self-described beer geek I was thrilled to find so many brews to choose from! They do events weekly, with various brews, and feature a lineup of their beers. But the best part is the staff. All very friendly, I've had long discussions with several. This place is ridiculous. GREAT selection. GREAT service. They will go a mile to make sure their customers are happy. And if they don't have what you're looking for, they will do their best to order it for you! The staff member working helped me pick out some great finds, even going to far as to tell me beers they had in the back they could bring out for me.
