Saw the positive reviews and decided to stop in. What a great place.

First, we needed directions and guy (sorry I didn't get his name) was very patient and guided us in to the store. We walk through the door and were immediately asked if we needed help.

Second, the selection was fantastic. Many local PA breweries (Sly Fox, Troegs, Victory, Voodoo, etc.) were well represented. There were also many great out out of state beers available as well (Cigar City, Russian River, Port Brewing/Lost Abbey, Furthermore, Darkhorse, etc.). Every question I asked was greeted by a kind and knowledgeable response. It was obvious the people there really knew their stuff. They went so far as to check the date on a case for me.

Third, the atmosphere was welcoming and casual. There was no pressure to move along and the staff (I really should have asked the guy his name)were happy to shoot the breeze and talk about beer as I made my selection. I told them I was from Virginia and wanted to get some things I couldn't find there. The guy came out from behind the corner and helped me make my selection. On the strength of his recommendation (and what I had read on BA) I bought a case of Cigar City Jai Alai and a case of Sly Fox Pikeland Pils. As I made my purchases, the guy ran into the back and came out with a bottle of 2010 Nemeses which he gave to me free of charge.

I can't say enough good things about this place and the staff there. Definitely worth the visit. I know I'll be going again (and you should too)!

this place is amazing, only place i was able to find an amazing Belgian (found delirium noel 2008 - 2010), German, MI and their CA selection was also solid. i was able to grab some alesmith, lost abbey, port, bells and founders. since i used to live in MI i was really missing those 2... since i was on a bit of a beer high i think i left with 8 cases (ouch). if you go do not forget in PA you need to buy buy the case (think of it as a trading opportunity). since i bought so much they threw in some samuel smith tasting glasses for me!

You cannot beat this place for their selection! Probably one of the best kept secrets in Southern Chester County! They have beers that range from $16.00 a case to over a $100.00, and from places like China too! I was like a kid in a candy store and could not believe that I never knew they were 20 minutes from my home. While some brews may be on the pricey side, they didn't seem that crazy. I told a friend that we could always split a case if it was too much and that way you can try new beers without spending an arm and a leg. One of the more impressive selections I have ever seen and worth taking a trip to. I will be back!

Wow. I had a few free minutes this afternoon before meeting BA Deuane at the nearby McKenzie's so I figured I would head over here and check it out. What a great idea on my part. The selection is much better than the distributor over on 202. Founders, Voodoo, Stone, Bell's...it's all here. Decent prices, also. When you enter the store head down the aisle on the right side of the store to see all of the goodies. This is a bit of hike from my house, but I'll be back. Sooner rather than later, I'm sure. Friendly staff tops it all off. Well worth a visit!

One of two beer distributors in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania. This one is one the north east side of Kennett. As you walk in they have a nice selection of micros as well as a solid selection of BMC, Pabst, etc. Management is very friendly and helpful. I have had beers I wanted to get which they didnt have and they were happy to get them for me. The only downsides are (1)in PA you have to buy a case and (2) Prices are a little higher than other beer distributors I have been to in Pennsylvania. I go here to get something which isnt available in Delaware or Maryland.
