One of the best bottle shops in the western Philadelphia suburbs. The selection is great. And they get any "whale" that is distributed in SEPA. Better get there quick, though: beers like Parabola, Hopslam, KBS, BCBS, Black Note, etc. sell out within minutes, not hours or days. The staff is awesome. Some of them are still learning and some of them are master-class, but they are all enthusiastic about craft beer. Prices are a little "pricey" but not inconsistent with what you will find in the area. Their hot dogs are fantastic. Occasionally, they will have an amazing beer they need to clear and put in on sale for retail $. I would tell you about a couple of gems that I have bought under such circumstances, but then I'd have to kill you...

This is a typical deli/bar/store that you would find in the PA state. It's attraction strangely might be its near neighbor about a block away the Tired Hands Brewing establishment which makes for a logical stop.
Therr is a pretty solid selection here with prices edging towards the high side a bit it seems. The area seems to be filled with large old homes and there is a sense the pricing reflects the neighborhood.
Staff is nice and willing to help. Asked about a few products and they had no problem answering them without any confusion.
If you are visiting Tired Hands (which is really the only key beer reason you would be down here in the first place), this place is a logical next step. I also liked that on yhe counter they had a sample of beers that were listed as "what is new this week". I wish more stores did this.
One tip, cut through the church and the parking lot to save yourself time on your walk if you are parked near the brewery. Theres a path that goes around which isnt invasive and it will save you walking around a large block of traffic.
