This is a six pack and singles store opened up by the same people who run The Beer Outlet. http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/11740
There are about 20 or so refridgerators full of beer. The first fridges are filled with local brews. (Victory, Yards, Flying Fish, etc) From there the fridges contain other US craft brews, World beers and lastly Macros.
The selection is very nice and the employees will offer you an empty six pack right away after saying "hello." They are as excited about beer as you are and are up for having a chat.
There are a few tables set up for sitting back and enjoying your selections. They also serve bombers as well. Prices are reasonable and the location makes it perfect for someone in the Northeast who does not want to take the trip into Center City or New Jersey.

Great beer selection, I like that they have a growler station and they also have tastings on Fridays. They had all the beers that I wanted from this pass Xmas. I would definitely check the selections they have when the season change to see if they have something I have been looking for. They are a tad bit pricier then other places that I have been too.

Craft Beer Outlet was the first store I checked out on the way into Philly (it's north Philly so those of us coming from NJ, it's rather convenient to hit on the way in, way out)
It's setup is a bit different than most stores as it's organized by style and not by brewery which can be a bit confusing if you're looking for a certain brewery specifically. There's a few tap handles usually pouring some solid local beers on the right when you walk in. They also run specials depending on the day. I believe wednesdays? are discount bomber days.
The cooler is expansive with basically every 6 pack they have in the store broken into singles then a huge selection of cold bombers as well. The guys I talked to were really knowledgeable and friendly. Not the biggest store, but they use their space wisely. A bit pricey for someone from NJ but worth it for all the releases they get.
Check this place out, it's worth it.
