I was very impressed by this store. Before I get to the heart of my review, let me just say that I didn't need any help so I feel bad saying service was a 3.5. But without much interaction before the checkout line, that is appropriate for my visit. But honestly, no complaints.

The selection for both wine and beer was really good. Will you get every microbrew you may want. Probably not. But given the hordes of microbrews out there, I was quite impressed. I got some new French wines, a Belgian Lambic for Thanksgiving, and an asortment of microbrews.

Probably the best thing about this store is the individual beer aisle. I've been intending for a while now to try Dogfish's Midas Touch. Due to how expensive it is, I'm so glad I can buy just one 12 oz. bottle of it to try it out. In other words, you can make your own six pack. I'm going to use this to try new beers and to make a beer selection pack for Christmas gifts for friends. I'm definitely going to go here from now on if I'm looking to try out new, unfamiliar beers.

I didn't see Heavyweight's beers here, which would be a major oversight since it is a Jersey brewery. I'll have to look for it again.

After reading the reviews below, I think I saw a much different slice of this store when I visited. Stopped by on a Sunday night, and the beer section looked ravaged and unattended. Plenty of beers missing completely above their name tag, and sixers tossed around like their had been a war that no stocker bothered to clean up. Selection was very ho-hum, as they carry, as noted by other reviewers, whatever the flagship beer is for each company: DFH, Rogue, Brooklyn, Sierra Nevada, Yards, etc. Geographical scope was decent while the international selection stunk. Not much beyond Guinness, Stella, or Moretti. Nothing but sixes and singles of 12 ounce bottles – nothing seasonal or special besides a few cases of SN Celebration. Then again, that may be because the beer section looked like an Old West ghost town. The vast majority of the beer was left out on the shelves with freezer cases holding sixers of pretty much the same selection as the shelves, but with all the macro’s mixed in. I thought I had caught this store with it having a hangover, but the lack of service and the much-below-average wine section (in size, selection, cultivation, and price) made this branch by far the worst Total Wine I’ve ever seen. Warehouse style does afford one upside: a sixpack of Brooklyn Black Choc. Stout for $6.50.

I'd make the short drive down Route 38 to Martin's for beer shopping.

Total Wine is a large, clean, well-run store with a good-sized staff that seems friendly and helpful.

The wine selection is very impressive! I buy all of the wine for my wine tasting group here (http://www.firstwednesdayswinetasting.com). They have a massive selection with some hard to find stuff and many exclusive items. The wine staff is great, and the prices are terrific.

The choice of wiskey is great, and they carry quite a few interesting liquors as well.

The beer selection is very good as well. It's over 300 beers, but many of those are common/average beers. I gave them a 4.5 for selection, but that's because they just have so many good wines and liquors as well. In their singles aisle they carry most of the Sam Smith line-up, many Belgians, Rogue, Allagash, etc. - a cart-load of micros and dozens of assorted imports! And for a cold six-pack, their selection of micros can't be beat locally.

I would highly recommend them for beer and wine!!!

I have been coming to this store for years, even when they were "Fine Wines" in the 80's. Originally, I came for the prices and then for the selection. They have a decent selection of single and six pack beer, along with cases. With an entire aisle dedicated to beer, ciders and malternatives. Although this store sells mostly wine and liquors, I think that most beer enthusiasts would be satisfied with the store, and they seem to get a better selection every time I visit. From their latest catalog (which comes out quarterly) I counted about 244 different beers that they sell. (includes macros of course). Call them and they will probably send you one.

Clearly, the best "Total Wines" I've been to is in Claymont, Delaware. Right off I-95 and across the DE state line, it's worth the 25 minute drive from Philly.
