Warehouse style case store. Really cramped and sometimes they stack the caes up so high you think you might be buried in there. Selection is very good, all the PA breweries, and some Founders, and bells. Lotís of european stuff. Some Russian River, Lost abbey, and Cigar city. not a lot of prices on things, you have to ask the front desk what the cost of a case is, which is annoying. Also sells cigars and lotto tickets if thatís your thing.
After buying alcohol in Delaware and Maryland, I came home to Philadelphia and was extremely disappointed in selection everywhere I went in the area. Hatboro Beverage is one of the few places that I respect at home. Their selection is phenomenal. I saw a case of 120 from 2007 last time I was in there, but there in lies the problem...they only sell cases. While this may (and probably is) due to Pennsylvania distributor law, I canít go drop $ 150 on a case. I would in a heartbeat buy 1 or 2 of those bottles, but only buying cases puts a large hamper on enjoying their great selection b/c its difficult to talk myself into dropping $70 buying a 24 case of a new, possibly great beer when if I donít like it, I have 23 left sitting around. Their price is also very expensive, but I seem to see that everywhere in Pennsylvania. If they sold 6s and singles, it would be very close to sitting up with stateline.
Pretty nice selection of beers here, especially hard-to-finds. It isnít the biggest place ever, but it does have a good selection. Their prices tend to be on the high side. The service is always great, real friendly staff. They also have tastings and sampling very often, usually on the weekends.
Great selection of micros, both local and from afar, they were giving away some free samples in the early afternoon on the Saturday I was there, friendly service, very easy to get to, plenty of parking, a great distributor to visit often

Nice place thats easy to get to - they seem to carry hard to find beers that others in the area donít. I managed to find some good Bellís brews, 3Floyds Dreadnaught, DFH olde school and others, as well as many other selections. There are also many older barleywines and other good high alcohol selections from 2004 and prior. Victory, Weyerbacher, Troegs and other local brews are available in copious amounts. Always a friendly and helpful staff. My only complaint was getting misquoted on a case by $12 when I was in looking then having to pay the higher rate at checkout. Probably the best distributor within 15-20 miles.
I stumbled upon this lovely beer store in search for some Dogfish Head 90 Min IPA. I found it plus many others! They carried Dogfish Head, Stone, Victory, Three Floyds, & Rogue to name some! Be sure to check the cases as theyíre not sorted in the best order and the store is a bit tight. Though as mentioned in other reviews the owner is more than happy to help! I bought a case of Dogfish Head & Victory and was given a free T-Shirt and a nice chat along with an invite to a public microbrew fest that they usually go to. Awesome people & the price was pretty reasonable. Itís my new beer store!
I was very impressed on the inside. Big selection of Micros and a good size selection of imports. Owner was very helpful. We chatted awhile and even gave me a free bottle of something he thought I may like. Found some older cases I probably couldnít find for miles around. Picked up a case of í04 Bigfoot and will be back for more.
I may be biased because I live a half mile from this place, but they have a great selection of all styles. I have known the owner and manager for many years and they truly love thier beer. They are said to specialize in Belgians, but have quite a variety of IPAís (they seem to be hop-heads like me) and many stouts. Sample bottles are always available. I have actually seen the owner himself rip open a case of Mad Elf and start pouring it out for all to taste. Great people selling great beers.
