Very impressed with the selection of craft beer here. There is probably as much amount of fridge space dedicated to craft/imports as there are to the macros which is impressive for a take out place in Levittown. Lots of big bottles and plenty of cold six packs. There are a few cases in the store and some shelves have room temperature bottles. One worker there (may have been the owner) discussed craft beer with me while I was browsing. From that convo I can tell he is very dedicated to the craft beer industry and seems like that is what he himself exclusively drinks. He had a lot of recommendations for me even though I already had picked out what I bought (Dark Horse Double Crooked IPA 4pk). The atmosphere takes a hit as the place is crowded with cases of beer on the floor so walking space is limited.

A great place for craft beer growing up in Fairless Hills. But I haven't been their in awhile since moving to N.E. Philly.

Went there the other day on the way home from work to see what it's like now. I was taken aback by the new warm single beer display they have in the middle of the store now, I'm assuming for a create your own 6-pack element to the store. (Completely unnecessary IMO)

Bought a sizer of Kenzinger and realized it was 3 weeks beyond its freshness date. So I took it back and complained and the staff told me that the date doesn't matter and the beer is fine. I asked for a refund and went to see if there was anything else I might be interested in. I checked out the Brooklyn Pilsner, which I realized was TWO months beyond its freshness date. I left and and went to The Craft Beer outlet in N.E. Philly, which is much closer to me and noticed that none of their beer was beyond the freshness date.

I understand that a beer distributor in the suburbs has less volume and is working with what they got, but don't sit there patronize me for wanting my craft beer to be as fresh as possible for maximum enjoyment.

I've heard about Trenton Road Take Out for a while now, but never had the opportunity to get out there until this past Saturday. I'm glad I finally did.

I had checked their website and saw they had Carton Boat Beer on tap, so I planned on a grabbing a growler of that along with my shopping. As I walked in the door with my growler, the girl behind the counter said "I bet you want the Stone Enjoy By that we just tapped". At that point, my internal GPS voice was recalculating, recalculating...

Anyway, great selection and prices were as good or better than most places. A bonus was the girl working there who was not only pleasant and helpful, but enthusiastic as well.

It's safe to say that I'll be finding the time to make TRTO a regular stop

Atmosphere - it is an odd little beer shop with a couple to tables and a TV, the locals are drinking big name beers probably laughing at me as I take an hour walking the aisles picking out beers
Quality - great selections the place is jammed with beer, they have beers that I never see in this area
Service – They are helpful and will look up beers to see if they are in the shop and then walk the aisles with you to find what you are looking for
Selection - large selection with beer that you don't see in the area
Value - I buy the beer I can’t find in NJ here, therefore the price is secondary, I think prices are OK

A) It's a glorious exercise in ordered chaos, plus a wisecracking group of regulars sitting at a picnic table watching TV.

Q) Everything I've gotten there has tasted like it's supposed to, so the storage appears to be solid.

S) Helpful, friendly, always available to make suggestions or give information. Will hold hard-to-get beers by request via their FB page - first come, first serve. Owner (Sir Mix A Six or "SMAS") is often present and always friendly.

Se) Broad, broad range for a store of its size - especially for those coming over from nearby NJ. SMAS will try to get you anything he's able to.

F) I believe they offer breakfast sandwiches, but I have yet to try.

V) Good pricing, not bargain basement, but certainly fair.

Unless you live in some glorious Fantasyland of beer stores, TRT is an oasis of goodness. I often go out of my way to stop there.

vibe/atmosphere: dont judge a book, nor a beer store by its cover. Inconscipious on the outside, delicious on the inside. You can hardly tell its a liqour store from the outside, step within and its the best little bottle shop in levittown. Your vibe level goes up when you see how much craft beer is crammed into such a small area.

Quality: good quality of upper echoleon choices, your trappist, german style and American offerings Bruery, Alesmith to name a few. Orderly with a mesmerizing offering of bottles tightly packed, no dust, very clean presentation. Your everyday craft as well $20 bombers of BA stouts.

Service: Friendly, knowledgable, both the owner and stocker knew what was on floor. Retrived boxes for my large order.

Selection: Very good selection, some of the Canal stores in 1/3 the square footage. 6-7 Shelfing units with tons of loosies and a small selection of bombers. About a 80% - 20% split which makes for some good bargins and averageing down. Being from NJ there is a vast selection (about 10-15 breweries) not offered across the river, Bells, Nebraska, Cigar city, Alesmith, are the prime canidates worth the trip. Dark horse, twisted pine, duck rabbit, and duclaw are also notable offerings not found on NJ shelves (at least in southern and central that i visit). The place seems to be heavy on the ipa offerings so if your a hophead, most of all the breweries have thier ipa staple available. Russian River used to be offered here but only recently discontinued due to supply/demand issues. Sorry i missed out.

Price: Most of the small packages (12oz) are priced right in the $2 range.Bombers were typically 8-$10 range with exception of course Nebraska and Bruery which range in the $20's. I picked up 30 bottles, mostly ipas, with 3 bombers of Alesmith and 27 loosies for $90 which i though was very reasonable.

Overall: great values, great selection, especially for those in NJ looking for something new and unavailable in thier area. Crammed with lots of breweries ive never heard of before. Good things come in small packages and Trenton rd takeout offers a vast selection for everyone in a one stop shop. They seem to rotate stock alot and are always bringing in new offerings so check back often. Website and facebook will give you a heads up to what is available. A hidden gem, worth the trip & worthy revisit.

Great prices and they do not mark up the hard to get beers. but you will have to reserve the limited beers here as they rarely hit the shelf. Also i like the facebook updates on what is coming into the store. If the owner (aka sir mix a six) is available he will make recomendations though they they would be from word of mouth because i dont think sir mix a six doesnt drink beer but still a very nice guy. There are plenty of singles to mix a six and they also drop prices on seasonals that are hanging around a little to long.
