Sandwiched between a pizza place and a Dunkin Donuts(what more could you ask for!), this hidden oasis is a great stop for all your beverage needs. My sister-in-law told me about it and had to stop. You have a nice balance between BMC type beers, sodas, and a great craft section. They have all the stuff I never see in my parts including Bell's, Stone, Left Hand, 2 Brothers, and a nice selection of the local guys(Victory, Yards,...). The prices are fair and the only knock I have is help. I had questions and there was only one person available and she was working the counter. I was not about to start cracking cases to check dates or what was in this or that variety case. It is clean, nicely organized, and stocked. I will be hitting this store again!

Most important, the guy I just dealt with was a complete jerk.
Called stating that I was driving up from DE to get KBS.
He 1.5 cases in the store and told me he was already holding some for others.
Would not hold any for me and when I arrived, SURPRISE, they were out.

As a craft beer enthusiast and friend of many local craft beer drinkers, I will certainly be sure to tell everyone that this place is not worth the trip.

Very good selection with in general good dates on IPA's. The only thing wrong was it was very disorganized with shelf tags for many beers that you have to search through cases to see are out of stock.

I've been here 3-4 times now and was very impressed with the range and selection of the beers. The prices are competitive and they have had a sale on for a couple of the times I've been here. The website is not completely up to date so its probably a good idea to make a visit in person to check out the stock.

The aisles are spacious and everything is clearly labled. The shelves are marked with prices so you can get a clear sense of what you might be spending without having to make a special trip to the register for a price check.

My favorite purchase here was a variety case of St. Bernardus beers (which I didn't even know existed until I saw it here). There are six beers in the case (the Abt 12, 8, 6, the St. Bernardus Tripel and Witbier, along with the Watou tripel) and they were all well within freshness dates (I have a year and a half to finish off the 8 shortest lived beers :-).

They also arrange periodic tastings and the staff are uniformly cheerful and helpful.

This place is definitely worth a visit.

The word of caution is to be sure to check dates on the cases. I've found one or two that were out of code and a few that were close to expiration.

This place is only second to Exton Beverage in my eyes. Selection is incredible, with almost two full rows of various imported Belgian beers. I've never wlaked out of the store without a case in hand, they have everything, including Weyerbacher, Lancaster, Yards, Bells, Flying Dog and Fish, Smuttynose, the list goes on and on. I do admit that the help isn't very good, but I guarantee if you go in on a Friday or Saturday, there will be a beer head working at the counter, ready to help. I first started going to this store just by chance and was surprised to find 'discount' beers. Basically they had Victory, Magic Hat, Brooklyn Brewing, and other big breweries stacked in the front 'on sale'. The good micro-brew cases were about $15 discounted. The beers were basically at or near their expiration date, so beware, but I never had a bad beer when I bought one of these cases. I should mention that this ended about 2 months ago, much to my dissapointment, but I still stop in once or twice a month.

I was in the area for a doctors appointment so I figured I would stop in and see what this place was like. Boy, was I glad I did. This place is located in the median of Rt. 202 behind a car wash and stuck in between a Dunkin' Donuts and a sub shop. It looks like a total macro distributor, but don't let the looks fool you. I have passed by this place dozens of times before and never thought twice about stopping. I will be stopping for now on. Go inside and you'll find about 6-8 aisles with the sodas and alcopops being the first couple of them. As far as micros go they have Stone, Bell's, Victory, Tröegs, Sly Fox, DFH, SN, SA, Oskar Blues, Yards, Penn, Weyerbacher, and more. The whole case law still ticks me off, but prices seemed pretty fair. I picked up the last case of Oaked Arrogant Bastard for $56 plus tax. That may be why I have such warm feelings for this place right now. Now that I know somewhere this close to DE that can give me my Stone and Bell's fix I think I may be making more drives up that way.
