I was in NJ visiting family and saw the reviews on this place so decided to try it. We drove through traffic for an hour and a half and by the end of the drive was doubting that that drive would be worth this unknown beer shop. When we got there i walked through the door and spotted a Brooklyn Black ops and that was it for me it was worth that drive, i ended up spending $150 got that black ops, Russian River, Lost Abbey, and some Firestone Walker. I was looking for some Nugget Nectar but they didn't have any, I asked and they told me they had just gotten some in their Case shop so i went over and grabbed one! They also have a surprisingly good Gluten Free Beer selection. Needless to say this place is a little oasis for beer lovers. I will definitely come back here when I'm in the area.

The wife and I were driving down to Philly from Westchester County, New York, and approaching the city on 95-S I somehow found this jawn and decided to take a little detour. It is not too far from the interstate highway.

Located in a generic strip mall in a not-so-great area of Northeastern Philadelphia, this is definitely not the kind of neighborhood you expect to have a craft beer store.

The best stuff here is right as you enter to your left: a small selection of goodies and rarities, including Double DBA, Old Stock Brandy, Fifty Fifty, Prairie Brewing (first time I see this OK brewery in Philly), New Holland Night Tripper...

Beyond this, I didn't find this store to be amazing, outstanding or world-class. It is your typical Philly bottle store, with coolers filled with pricey single beers.

Everyone is super helpful and eager to find a beer for you, and the seven taps and little bar setup are cool. But really, this is not a destination. You can stick to The Foodery and Beer Heave in Philly proper and find better beer than here.
