Township Line is a great place if you are looking for something and all you need to do is call and ask. They'll tell you what they have and when to expect more if it's gone. That said, the stuff on the floor is a great selection of beers, most anything you'd look for can be found here. In fact, they still have Founders Nemesis, IS, and FBS here. They get the great seasonal beers too. However, my main complaint is that the prices for the stuff you really want is what keeps them still on the shelves. I've seen stuff here that is available at Whole Foods for cheaper, at a per beer level. For example, if I remember correctly, a case of FBS is ~$70, which comes out to about $3/beer. WF had FBS for $9/4pack at some point and at last check it was still $12/4pack. The IS and Nemesis were each $100 or more. BBVD cases for also about $100 when WF had bombers for $8

Now look I understand that they don't have the buying power that WF has, but it still seems like you get no discount buying by the case. So I guess what I would say is that if you have the time to shop around you might run into better price, but the selection here is very good for a small case store.

Township line has a very nice craft beer selection. The owners and staff are extremely helpful. I once called in looking for some pumpkin beers and the owner walked around the store and told me on the phone everything they had. Now thats service. The also sell some glassware and have all the regular stuff.

They also have a very nice cigar selection and sell some other stuff like tee shirts key chains etc. I try and stop by there to see whats new. Great place. I am glad its only 5 minutes from my house. Prices are very reasonable.

I absolutely love this place. There are probably 4 or 5 beer distributors that are closer to my house than this one, but I make the trip to this place every time. Chuck and Craig are amazing, and they really care about their customers. They have started an email list which sends out updates of rarities and new stuff, and will find anything for you. Their recommendations are amazing and they are just generally good people to talk to. I don't smoke cigars, but they have a walk in humidor, and my dad who is a smoker has made that his new home for stogies. Best Beer Distributor in Delco!

This is definitely a place to shop if you are looking for an interesting and wide selection of craft beer. One of the best selections I've seen in a beer store in the area. Included in the cases I spotted were the full line of Founders that comes into PA and all 3 of the Rochefort beers (10, 8 and 6). A few of the cases of things I was interested in were close to the end of their freshness period, but I didn't see anything older than its best by date.

The staff seems knowledgeable and accomodating.

While this is not the biggest store I've seen well over half of the stock is craft and it is well worth visiting if you are looking for something hard to find.

I always passed by this place because when I was younger it was a place that you went to buy a "case of the usual". Once their sign changed outside, I noticed the "micro brew" title. I have been very impressed with their selection of beer from near an far.

Space is limited here, but if you want a case of a micro brew, this is your place. My only complaint is that their 6-pack selection is a bit small, but that's no realy to overlook this spot!

Since I live literally 5-minutes from this place, it's great to have a local place to pick up a case of some great beer! The staff I have encountered have been very friendly and helpful!

Wow! I've been looking for a new beer store ever since my craft beer taste has gone towards rarer beers. Somewhere with great selection and reasonable prices.

Was amazed at the selection they had, lots of beer info, and prices on many items, but not all. Sales on lots of great craft beers, which is new to me. Service was friendly, called ahead for a special beer, and they promptly found it. Usually I have a hard time finding something I want to grab, but here I had trouble limiting my purchase to 2 cases. Beers all seemed within freshness dates, as far as I could tell.

Prices were good as far as I can tell, and one of the beers I wanted happened to be on sale.

A beer wasteland...

...until the beer brothers took over as the new management and I must say they have done an awesome job with this place. This store was a dump, in the summer you could be guaranteed to leave sweating with a case of old yellow. I personally only bought ice there (I live only blocks from it, and I would drive past it to go somewhere else). Now, they have one of the best selections of craft beers and imports anywhere in the area. Service is excellent, not to mention an awesome cigar humidor. Beer prices are OK, but PA kinda sucks with pricing anywhere you go.

Also, many times I drive by, there is some sort of sampling going on...

My new go-to place, and I live .5 minutes from it.
