I will no doubt end up revising this review as this store ages and comes into its own. It has already grown a lot in the short time it has been open, and has WAY more beer than the first time I walked in. After my last visit I think it is safe to say that their selection has reached near epic proportions.

The store is definitely focused on craft beer in a big way. Sure it has macro stuff, but it has roughly 14 doors total, and 12 are all craft. They have tons of american craft as well as a decent selection of stuff from Belgium and the other major beer countries. Since opening they have added shelves in the front and all along the back. We are talking floor to ceiling beer at this place.

They also have about nine taps for growler fills or pints. I hear that they also do tasting flights, though I have not confirmed that yet. Prices on fills are very reasonable.

They have a good mix of all the most sought after brands as well as plenty of more obscure stuff. I find their prices to be a little bit all over the place, but they are not out of hand for PA. Some stuff will be more expensive then other shops, some will be less, and most is about the same.

the only thing I can really say is a downside is that, while they have a mix and match section, you cannot mix any beer like at other bottle shops in the Philly area. This is only a minor complaint though, and they do offer a decent selection for mix and match.

The owner Darren is a super nice guy who is willing to do whatever it takes to serve his customers. Like I said before, they seem to have more beer every time I come in, and a lot of it is stuff that people have told him they want.

If you live in lower bucks this is definitely a place to check out, and if you live around the Southampton area, you now have a new place to go to for your craft beer needs. Highly recommended.

The Beer Store is not just any beer store; it is an honest to God bottle shop, which is hard to do in Pennsylvania. Beer selection has picked up since beer can be sold in grocery stores, but this place blew me away with the selection they have. Literally anything a beer geek would want you can find there. They also have the biggest growler selection I have ever seen in the area. Definitely worth checking out if you live in the Bucks/Mont area.

Nice place, a lot crammed into a somewhat small shop, but floor to ceiling selection, Mostly Eastern and regional brews and some European, lots of Belgian. Overall, a must -go if you’re in the area.

Great bottle selection, well organized, with new brews all the time. Growler filling in the back. Friendly, knowledgable staff. Fair enough prices for PA, and occasional specials that are amazing values. Only criticism is that the two aisles are so narrow that it makes it hard to browse during peak times -- you're always in somebody's way or vice versa. Still, this is an awesome shop.

Best beer retailer I've ever been to. Darren, the owner, was very friendly and gave me samples of a couple beers that I've never tried. Well worth the hour drive from jersey to get bell's, deschutes, etc.

Had the widest selection I've ever seen. They also have a bunch on tap for growler fills and pints to drink in their bar area. They'll also let you crack open any of their mix-a-six beers in the bar area for $5. Everything I picked up was fresh and there were a bunch of rarer beers sitting on the shelf. Seems that they get most of the widely distributed "whales" that come out once a year so I'll definitely be checking in from time to time.

The aisles are quite narrow, but it's obvious this is due to the sheer amount of beer that is inside the relatively small store.

If you're from jersey you owe it to yourself to take the trip out here to see what they have.

I don't think there's a better store around in the Philly area. 24 taps, 3000 bottles, knowledgeable staff and fair prices. What more could you ask for?

selection's great here. worth the hour or so trip from jersey maybe every few weeks. prices are a little higher than what I'm used to for most things. there's so much beer and a FEW aren't fresh I admit but I don't expect perfection, just appreciate the stuff I can get here that I can't in jersey

This is a pretty nice little shop. It is fairly small, but they manage to cram an impressive selection of beer. The service is quick and friendly. They also have taps for growler fills in the back, which I plan to try sometime. It is one of the few places in the area with single bottles or cans thanks to their clever strategy to get around Pennsylvania's damned container laws. As for prices, this place ain't cheap, but it is perfect for finding that special brew.

I went here with my brother to see what they had to offer. The place is basically a long aisle with shelves in the middle of bottles and six packs with a wall rack with bombers and long cooler with mostly the same items on the shelves and a mix-a-six area in the rear where they have beer on tap. The entrance had a large display and an area with reduced merchandise/seasonal items and gift packs near the register. They have many things which I can't get locally like many Evil Twin bombers and individually priced 12 oz bottles and a wide variety of Belgian beers including trappist items from St Bernardus.

The service was attentive and friendly and I ended up getting three things - an Iron Maiden Trooper Ale, Evil Twin Justin Blaeber and Goose Island Halia which was expensive but hard to find I suppose. I would return if in the area, but it was a little out of the way for me. I like how the Store is organized and they have some things discounted like pumpkin beers to move at the end of the season which makes sense. I will probably return if I have the chance it is a very clean place and the owner was there joking which shows they appreciate the customer, at least to me anyway.
