Civera's is a nice little Deli/ Takeout Place when in the need for a quick bite. The food is excellent and they have some great specialty sandwiches. Their beer selection is great for a store for that size. I like that Civera's has some great brews from Southern Tier, Chimay, and Dogfish Head that I can get both warm and cold. I also like that fact that I can make my own packs. I wish they would expand that section so I won't have to buy the whole six pack of beer to try one bottle and get the six pack later.

On my recent trip to Civera's I've been converted in drinking craft beer. Since I bought a few bottles to try I have been able to "experiment." The selection they have in very interesting for both regular and larger bottles. I also like that both are cold and warm. I wish they would expand their regular size single bottles so I can try more bottles and not have to buy 6 packs.

Stopped in last night and the sandwiches were great. For Deli fare such as sandwiches and salads I highly recommend them. For a size that big their beer selection is good. I like the option of both having six packs and mix packs especially when I'm splitting beers amongst friends and family. I like how they kept options like New Holland, Weyerbacher, Great Lakes and Terrapin that you can have both cold and warm.

I've been to a few bottle shops some quite expensive and some reasonable. I really like Civera's because of the selection changes. I've been going there frequently for a few months since I travel in the area often.

I like how I can get some nice IPAs in larger bottles both warm and cold. I also like the fact that I can make some interesting mix packs and get some nice things like Starr Hill Saison, Great Divide Collette, Six Point Apollo, Bell's Smitten Rye just to name a few.

Overall Civera's is a great place that you can enjoy an often changing selection and enjoy some great food as well.

While browsing after my visit from the distributor next door I stopped by for something to eat. I was referred to this place from a colleague whom I work with.

While waiting to order my meal I saw their single bottle collection and was impressed. They had such rarities and a nice variety of seasonals and mix and match packs. I was in awe for a place that size!

Definitely worth the trip, the food was tasty if you are into deli food and all. The young lady behind the counter was very helpful by showing me some in store specials that they had going on. Winded up getting some large bottles while there. I’m definitely coming back and referring more of my friends and colleagues.

I stopped in for something to eat on my way home from work and noticed the road sign advertising beer specials. This was the best move that I ever made! Civera's has a great beer selection, and they allow mix and match 4 & 6 packs, very cool, so I can try new things. The great thing is that the selection is always changing.

I also got a chance while waiting for my dinner to look at the selection of Big bottles that they have. I was impressed and will definitely be getting some in the future. I was told this is always changing as well and they carry some beers that are hard to find.

Overall the food and beer selection was excellent, I will now be stopping in more often.

Civera's serves basic deli/pizzeria food in a kind of gritty atmosphere. I've never sampled the food, but if I ever did, quite frankly, I'd order to go, as I don't think I'd enjoy "dining" in there. They have a good selection of 6-packs and single bottles (some out of the fridge) to chose from for take-out, and if you're looking for a case of something uncommon in the area, Back Alley Beverage is right next door. You're sure to find something there. Service is fine, even if the employees are a bit rough around the edges. I've only visited this place and BAB a couple times, just for the sake of experimentation, and...I don't really have any intention of frequenting.

Civera's is a local place with great selection both in single bottles and in six packs.

The staff is knowledgeable in all the beers that they carry and can help you out with all of your beer dilemmas. for example, I winded up getting a mix pack as opposed to getting a beer that I would have to save and drink for a later date.

They carry a diverse selection of styles ranging form imperial stouts, pale ales, to strong ales. They will also work with you if you are looking to get something they currently don't have they will get it for you.

Civera's is an unexpected place in a bland strip mall in Upper Darby. Following a fire there last year they've remodeled to a nicer look but they always had a good beer selection (sadly, it used to be better). While a couple coolers are filled with 40's and BMC, theres more filled with sixers, singles, and bombers of quality beer. Prices are generally better than most other 6-pack stores too.

An added bonus is the new Back Alley beverage in the rear of Civera's, which sells by the case and carries a good number of craft beers. The area is limited so turnover is high, meaning usually no out-of-date cases.

Also makes excellent hoagies and cheesesteaks.

Looks like a normal deli from the outside but it has at least 5 coolers of beer to go. Most of it is BMC but it did have a very good selection of local beer including Victory, Troegs, Flying Fish, Yards, PBC and their seasonals as well as some Stone, Chimay and other higher end six packs and bottles. Prices seemed reasonable for what they were selling and the fact that it was a deli. If it was closer to my house I'd go there more often but it's not. Seems to be a decent place to pick up a sixer on the go. Both employees working the counter were very friendly but didn't seem too knowledgeable about beer.

I usually stop off and visit this place often after work. Driving past it, you would figure it's just another spot to grab a regular six pack of bud or miller but it's much more once you take a stop inside. I loved the great selection of local and distant micros from around the country. If your looking for a great Philly cheesesteake just outside of Philly and a spot to grab a beer you never had before (I noticed every week they get a new beer in.) This is a great place to just grab a beer you waiting for.
