Transcribed from notes dated T, 10 August 2010.

I was on a mission on this day. I had received a trade request for Sly Fox CANs and I was getting ready to head to Madison, WI that Thursday so I needed to reload and ship mos' quick. I had a list of all Beer Stores on BA Beer Fly at the time and I decided to visit as many of the ones that offered singles and sixers as I could, taking notes at each one.

Limited selection, mostly sixers, no standouts. Singles = $$$$ as all get-out! Forget going here, you CAN do much better elsewhere. I am not even sure that it rates continued inclusion on BeerFly.

As I was taking a leisure stroll from the No Lib Foodery to Center City I was heading across Arch street and a field of neon signs caught my eye. I had to step inside.

Once in the door the place looked like your standard small grocery store with shelves full of food, baking goods, snacks and such running down each wall. It had an old dark feel to it too that reminded me of the 70’s for some reason. Moving on, in between these shelves was a little stand of sorts, or and island, if you will, that was a deli that offered a variety of sandwiches. I didn’t get anything to eat, this time, but a quick look at the menu looked promising. As I passed this stand, the back of the building had a few tables at which you could eat your sandwich and thankfully wash down with a beer. On the right side of the building across from the tables are a row of glass doored coolers stuffed full of tasty beers.

The brands on hand that deserve mention are Leffe, Green Valley, Brooklyn, Kronenbourg, Harbin, Sam Addams, Rogue, Lowenbrau, Paulanner, Hacher Pschorr, Stoudt’s, Anchor, Victory, Magic Hat, Troeg’s, Sierra Nevada, Yard’s, Flying Fish, J.W. Dundee’s, Sam Smith, Kwak, Unibrou, Ommegang, Dogfish Head, Red Hook and Duvel. Other honorable mentions were New Castle, Hoegaarden, Guinness, Harp, Amstel, Heinekin and Corona. Of course the usual suspects were there as well. Concerning different varieties per brand, there were one to six offerings per; Victory weighing in at the six selections.

As far as service goes, there wasn’t any one around other than the girls making sandwiches. Someone there likes their beer, but they weren’t hovering around the coolers doling out beer advice that particular day. Oh well.

Over all, if I lived a few blocks away from this place, I would definitely count it as a blessing.
