BPG is next to Doc's World of Beer in the Andorra shopping center. It's part of the same building, and might be the same owners.

I was surprised on my first visit (a Sunday night) to find people sitting at the small bar enjoying themselves. That's certainly good for business!

Along the right hand side there's a bank of glass door coolers full of good stuff. I didn't find anything amazing, but neither was it full of junk. I'm not sure about the prices because I didn't have the opportunity to write them down and then do a comparison with the competition, but they seemed in line.

They also sell growlers, and they will fill someone else's growler - unlike some places who've misread the PA laws.

Overall it's worth a visit, and I'm sure I'll be stopping back soon myself.

They have great beers on tap. You can get a flight of three 8 oz beers (usually high in alcohol %) for 7$, and most of their bottles and growlers are a decent price compared to other places. This is the best bottle shop I've been to.

I was running errands yesterday in the same strip mall in the Roxborough section of Philadelphia where BPG is located, so I decided to venture in and I'm glad I did. (Philly people: it's in the Andorra shopping center across the the McD's and next to the beer distributor.) I really didn't know what to expect considering there are no reviews for this place.

To start they have a really nice can and bottle selection. 80% is chilled in typical bottle ship coolers. The other 20% is mostly bombers prominently shelved behind the bar / counter. They also have 12 rotating taps with a great cross section of fine craft beer with most styles represented. I ended up walking out with a 32oz growler (yeah yet another growler in the collection) of Deviant Dale's for a quite a reasonable price for both the growler and the fill.

I found Steve Benko, the proprietor, to be both friendly and knowledgeable. He did offer a taste of the DD prior to filling the growler which was very nice, but unwarranted considering my affinity for this beer.

All in all my visit was a wonderful experience. I will be back and will recommend BPG to my friends in the area. Kudos Steve!
