This place should be reviewed as bar/restaurant and a store. As the bar it wasnít the successful. 35 beers on tap, but only one of real interest to try, Rodenbach Alexander. The rest were easily and commonly available. So that was pretty disappointing. The food was all bar food, so I wasnít really thrilled to eat there. Some fried pickles were nice. The beer store was pretty nice with a varied selection. Sadly, I just missed Matt, who seems like he would have been great to talk. The person that helped me was nice but didnít know a whole lot so it made the experience less than what I was hoping for. Iím guessing there is a lot of rare stuff but you gotta come when Matt is there and be on his list. I still did get a couple rarer PA and VA ticks. Prices are very high. Not worth coming out of you way to hi up, but if I was local Iíd frequent.

Definite diner vibe, dark. Many taps, but nothing particularly unusual or inviting. Ended up not making any purchase in the restaurant area, as I did not want ticks for ticks sake and I wasnít hungry. Then stopped by the bottle shop, staffed by a curmudgeonly but friendly shopkeeper. Lots of nooks and crannies, so keep your eyes peeled. Lots of rare and unusual stuff. Prices are staggeringly high. I assume some of this is because of PA law, but still more expensive than any other place Iíve seen in PA. Generally $3.50 or more for any single. Parking was ample.

Pretty solid place on a major road with plenty of parking in front and on the side. Bar area as you enter is nicely decored with plenty of seating. Restaurant area behind looked pretty nice as well. I did not check the bottle list, although I should have. Tap list was pretty good, although there was a bit of a focus on west coast stuff. I can see that being attractive to the locals, but being FROM the west coast I didnt really need Knee Deep and Lost Abbey ticks. I ordered a flight of four and my bill was like $15, which seems a bit crazy to me. There is also a bottle shop in the back. Selection is fair, but the prices on the more unusual bottles are kinda crazy expensive. $18 for a World Wide Stout?? Otherwise, nice place.

Iíd heard and read about this place for some time...and had wanted to visit...had a chance recently to detour a bit on a drive from VA back to NJ. I had heard the food was hearty but not special...but the beer and people were great. Turned out to be true on all accounts. Nonetheless I had a great surprise upon arriving on a Sunday night. Turned out it was Lost Abbey/Port Brewing night...which in and of itself would have made the trip here great...but it gets better...being the start of Philly beer week...I lucked into a visit from the whole Lost Abbey/Port Brewing crew. That meant I got to meet the man himself...Tomme Arthur! Got a picture too...thanks to their marketing manager Adam who I got to talk and drink with. Of course I was drinking a ton of rare and less common Lost Abbey/Port Brewing beers (a little heaver on the Abbey side). So of course I had a great adventure...and fantastic visit. Getting back to Caponeís itself I said up top...really great place with good if not great ambiance...great maybe a bit ordinary...but nothing bad. This is a place I would definitely visit again...especially on a special night like a tap takeover...but I donít think Iíd visit often...too many other better places to explore.

Great gem of a bar and restaurant about 25 minutes outside of Philadelphia. They had rotating taps with beers from all over the United states with some rare, some local and a couple of traditionals. The service courteous, quick and what I would expect. The food itself was quite good for bar fare. Quite the selection and the serving size was also great. Overall, a great place that has stood the test of time and will continue to do so regardless of how the craft movement changes. Great place to have some beers. Must visit.

Theydon_Bois  (1001) Tourist Town (West), England | April 12, 2015
Visited on Black Friday, 29/11/13. Capones is a moderately sized bar/diner that accomodates perhaps 60 or so folks seated with around a dozen stools at the bar where we managed to squeeze in. Probably an a-typical visit in terms of it being Black Friday which carries a special beer list and the place was pretty swamped at 12.45 pm. We stayed for a couple of hours and the place maintained itís same busy edge but the service held up just fine. Crowd was local with a few beer geeks evident ticking some of the rareties and one offs, local BA specials plus a HF beer and other interesting stuff from around the US. The bottle shop is located to the rear and caries a solid selection of singles (not common in many PA liquor stores) from PA and around the US and Europe. Tasting flight available at the bar which helped us work through the list. Had a hot sandwich at the bar which was decent. Solid venue with the bonus of a decent bottle shop adjoining. As I said, I hit it with a special tap list on offer so I could have dropped a few points on another day so whilst solid - probably not quite the world class tag for me.

Visited 04/03/15. Not an easy drive from Philly, even in light afternoon traffic. Caponeís is a tired-looking Italian restaurant with a small bottle shop attached. The bottle selectionís pretty modest, with perhaps 250 beers available (the listed numberís way too high). The selection available in the shop mixes high and low. For instance, I walked out with a local sour and a 40 of Colt 45 Double Malt. Itís a solid spot, but not particularly memorable. Service was bright and cheery. My experience in the restaurant was fine. I sat at the bar and received prompt if somewhat surly service. The 25ish taps offered a decent selection of Belgian-inspired beers (La Trappe, Chimay) alongside a couple of locals (Stoudts, Fegleys). While the beer list was decent, it fell short of what I expected from a place with such a lofty reputation. I walked away not regretting my visit, but feeling that thereís places in the area where Iíd rather spend my time.

When I pulled up it was totally not what I was expecting. Looked like an unassuming Italian restaurant with a long bar. Got a taplist that was heavily focused on local beer, more so than any other bar I found around the area, which was a big plus. Service was prompt even though it was extremely busy (and I went on a Monday!). Bottle shop out back is a tiny room with tons of good beer. Prices are high but the selection is amazing.

Glad I stopped by here for their annual Black Friday event. Awesome selection and 20 taps. Not a bad beer on tap. Of course this was a special event but the feel of the place was still cozy. I will definitely go back again.

Thanks to Adrian for showing me his favorite beer establishment. It is a very fine place. The back is a little bottle shop that is packed with superb releases - somebody obviously puts some care into the place. The prices are high, but acceptable for such a fine selection. The front is a pleasant bar/restaurant, with muted decor and several TVs. Service was friendly, and the food was pub fare - I had the crab cake sandwich, which was good and well priced. Adrian likes the salad with grilled chicken. I had one of their specials once too - the jambalaya, which did not impress - better stick to the basics. There are 30 taps going, with new brews coming in all the time, There is always something exciting and hard to find on their draft list! One complaint: they serve everything very cold, even in the middle of winter. A lot of brews are not served best in this way. Caponeís is a really good place - #1 beer joint in the Philly area, and it is well worth a visit. Where Matt Capone and his crew really excel - this is what puts Caponeís head and shoulders above other, perfectly good, beer establishments - is in the area of special events. They get the best brews in the world in here, and often they are accompanied by the men who brewed them. I canít think of another place that can match them in this regard.
