Damn didn't even now this was on here. I guess that's what you get when you look for this place on RT13.I seen a big sign saying Craft beer. So naturally I pull in.

As soon as I walked in I was greeted and asked if I needed any help. I said no thankyou just going to browse. A small little place but is packed to the gills with goodies. A line of fridges to your left and the checkout is to your right and everywhere else are bottles on shelves. There is a barrel with a bunch of six pack holders. The man told me just take whatever bottles you need and use the holders.I ended up getting a couple goodies. Abt 12,Koningshoeven Quad, a couple of Unibroue's and that was about it. I asked if they had Hopslam and he said I asked for five cases and they gave me one and they sold out within the hour.

I think this could be my first exceptional rating in every category but this place is great. A great place to buy singles.


I just walked in and noticed that they now sell pints. I had a pint of Ten Fidy and was on my way. This just further adds to this great place.

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.
