A good seclection of micro's along side the other junk. Go early in the week to browse, it's hard to do on Friday.
They make an effort to have a good selection of seasonals on hand. A good selection of Beligums in stock, English and German beers. Plenty of big bottles too.
Also, any beer that is in the store there you can get just up the road at the distributor.
Just go out of the shopping center make a left and take it to r 63,make another left follow to Franklin Mills.
It's by Dicks. Never been there myself, this is from the old man.

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.
