3.23/5  rDev -26.3%
vibe: 3.5 | quality: 3.5 | service: 2 | selection: 4 | $$$$

A fairly convenient location, which is not very far from center city. As some of you may know, since this is a distributor, if you buy beer here, its going to be a case. That in itself, is a big turn-off to me, but that is the Pennsylvania law. Selection is good, including Great Lakes, Stone, Anchor, Sly Fox, Brooklyn and many more. Their prices are really up there however, for most people a case here is going to be cutting into a good slice of your paycheck. And this was paired with non-existent customer service. From the truck drivers who nearly collide with you while rolling dollies to the cashiers who do not even say hello when you walk in or leave. But, if you got the $, its worth picking up a couple cases.

4.14/5  rDev -5.5%
vibe: 3.5 | quality: 4 | service: 4.5 | selection: 4.25 | $$

Ran by here while in town. The building itself is a warehouse so there's plenty of room to move around, and it's cold inside, so bring a jacket. Beer is sorted by style and country. Service was good, a man greeted us as we walked in an explained the layout of the store. He checked on us later to make sure we didn't have any questions. Selection was ok, half of the shelves were empty and I didn't find the case of Dirt Wolf I was looking for, I did however walk out with a case of Jai Alai for $40. Prices were pretty good, but you have to buy everything in quantities of 24. Overall, this is worth checking out if you don't mind buying by the case.

This is now our go to place when traveling down from NY for a weekend in Philly. We have been here twice now and it is easy to stop here first before checking into our Center City hotel.

Service was fine. Check out easy. Parking is on the street and we parked right out front both times.

The selection has so far been exactly what we are looking for. Bell's, Port Brewing, Coronado, and Half Acre. They also had Russian River and tons of other stuff. Yes, it is buy the case, but we can't get this stuff in NY.

Head over to Hawthornes after for lunch.
