I was here for the first time for the Suburban Philly BA Meet-up on June 18, 2011. The event was $10 for admission into the restaurant where TJ's would provide food, water, and service.

The restaurant and bar is unassuming, located in a suburban strip mall across the street from a train station. But inside is nice exposed brick walls with homey decor and a nice bar that is clearly removed from the main dining area.

For the BA meetup, the back room was reserved for the tasting with a couple tables set up for the bottle share. and the middle room was set-up with a couple cafe tables and several tables filled with huge platters of each chicken salad, kobe beef, and crab cake sliders. There was also a cheese plate that several pounds of about 5 cheeses with olives, salami, dates and toast/crackers. The food was very good and a huge steal at $10! I especially like the mini-crab cake sliders where the "crab" was high quality lump crab meat that was lightly fried served simply on a challah bun.

The service was good, they provided several pitchers of ice water that was constantly refilled and plenty of clean, new tasting glasses were brought in as the old ones were cleared. The servers were attentive the entire time and were not rude about kicking us out when the event was over. Even though it was supposed to end at 4, they let us stay until 4:45.

The draft selection was good, but not mindblowingly awesome, although Hill Farmstead Double Citra was rumored to have been put on when we left. The majority of the beers are good craft beers, featuring many locals and interesting imports, especially Belgians. I would absolutely go back again, if only it weren't 35 minutes from my house.
