Stopped in here earlier this week before going to Tired Hands.
Surprisingly big for its location. Small retail area in the front, large row of coolers on the left and tons of loose bottles and warm six packs on the right. A small bar area located in the back is packed with people having a beer and getting growlers filled. A nice inviting atmosphere to have a beer or just pick up some to go.
Quality seemed to be pretty good. Service was good, I was asked if I needed help twice in my short time in the store. Prices seemed to be up and down. Most where priced right where they should be but $25+ for a 750ml of Tilquin is crazy, especially when I had just seen it for $18 at a different shop not two hours before. Prices aside the selection was pretty good. They had some RR, Belgians, and all the other usual suspects you would expect from a philly area bottle shop.
Overall a pretty nice bottle shop. I will probably stop in again when I am going to Tired Hands, it is only a block away after all.

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...
