Far away but definitely worth the trip. Best bottle selection Iíve ever seen in a store. Beer store is in a small back room of the restaurant. Restaurant has a certain supper club atmosphere. The Matt guy is pretty awesome he even hooked me up with a free Victory pint glass for making my first trip out there. Talked to me the whole time and gave lots of recommendations. Prices were fair, better than the foodery in most respects. The bombers and 750s were a lot cheaper but it seemed like the 12oz bottles were really expensive. However, six-packs were ridiculously cheap. Nugget nectar, Old H, Storm king, all <$10. Expedition stout and Hopslam were only $16 a sixer. Tons of neat rarities. Found a Kentucky breakfast and stille nacht reserve 2005. Oh yeah, i dropped $127.50 there.

Headed out to Capones for the Pliny tasting event. 13 craft beers on draft and a firkin from Nodding Head. Place was totally packed with beer enthusiats so the service was a little slow from my first waitress. A second waitress MaryAnne stepped in to help out and she was great talking to my fiancee and buying me extra time to get a few more beers in. Met the owner Matt and after telling him what a great place he has he hooked me up with a pint glass and a beer on him plus some beer mags to read later. The selection in the store is sick to say the least FFF, Lost Abbey, Founders, Bells and even had a few Heavyweights left. I will be making this 1 1/2 hour long drive again soon.

Capones is an establishment at a crossroads. Itís a Bar & Grille that is transforming into a destination beer bar. Typical bar & grille set-up with large oval bar,TVís, tables in the bar area and dining rooms in the back. Plenty of staff on hand, barmaids are adequate but seem to have zero beer knowledge. The owner is the beer geek of the lot, and is assembling a line-up of hard to find beers in the Philadelphia suburbs. Beer geeks have been crowding the bar during beer events causing congestion at the bar and in the parking lot (there is adequate parking down the street at the neighboring office complex). I forsee minor adjustments by the ownership will be made in the future to ease the congestion. With proximity to the PA Turnpike interchange its a easy on/easy off to stop by and check out the take-out and bar. Bonus is Capones does fill growlers to go. Capones has carved a niche out for itself with its beer selection, and I see nowhere but up for its reputation.

I was overwhelmed by the sheer quantity of selection. I had created a "want list" of DIPAs available in PA, and as a result of my first visit, the vast majority were crossed off the list, including one-off batches that I thought I might never see. THE place to go for take-out beer. I have yet try the food, but I imagine that will take care of itself at the upcoming Russian River Night. Thanks Matt!

Took my girlfriend to enjoy a nice dinner and some exotic beers. Prices and food was decent. Maybe it was just because it was a Friday night, but from the resturaunt area the bar is really loud. About 10 beers on tap, which apparently rotates weekly. They were having a Great Lakes theme when I went in. The selection both on tap and in the bottleshop is amazing. I will definitely stop at the bottleshop again and talk to Matt, the owner. He has definitely put together the most comprehensive collection in PA. I left with Lagunitas, Ramstein, Arcadia and Three Floyds bottles. Prices are moderate, but considering Matt is the only one in the area to offer most of these brews, they are more than reasonable.

Excellent tap selection, excellent food i had a buger with fries it was great. Service was top notch, my glass was never empty. This was a treat for me, having great brews, and watching some march madness on t.v. Good amount of parking. The take-out store was amazing i have spent a lot of money there over the past couple of months on some pretty hard to find brews (Nogne o, Hoppin Frog, Bells, 3 Floyds, Lost Abbey, Russian River, Pizza port, Avery, Stone, Allagash, Olfabrikken, Dogfish Head, Thirsty Dog, Cantillon, Great lakes, New Holland,Founders are just a host of names that frequent this location). I have even purchased westy 8, Ommegadon, Struise Pannepot, Koff Porter, and a slew of Micros from all around Pa as well as all around the US. Amazing. Now donít even get me started on the food (excellent), and the events are well ran and awesome, i frequent this place 2-3 times a month, even if it is about an hour away. This has become my hang out.

I would echo all of the good things said below. The owner, Matt, obviously is a beer fanatic, which explains why he is able to stock his store with so many brands you cant find anywhere else in the Philly area. Tracking down ultra-rare beers is his specialty. He also loves to talk beer with his customers. In addition, you can request to be on his email list, which means he will send you updates every time new beers come in. he also has about 8 taps, half for mainstream stuff, half for exotic brews. When i was there I enjoyed Hercules Double IPA on draft, which I havent seen anywhere else in these parts. I had the crabcake sandwhich for dinner, which was very good, and quite inexpensive. Many restuarants cant make crab cakes to save their lives, but this one was pretty good!

Just visited Caponeís last week for the first time after seeing the place rated so highly on Ratebeer. Amazing - usually I have to qualify all ratings for PA establishments with "good considering PA legal restrictions" - not here. Matt has done an amazing job of putting together the best beer store in the area. Most good stores go out of the way to "check with the distributor" for items you want - Matt drives to Western PA, trades, and does whatever he can to find rare and desirable beers. Another big plus is that every beer has the price on it (unlike some other well-known places), which saves you having to walk up to the counter (usually past a cat) for a price check. Great Lakes, Founders, Duck-Rabbit, Pizza Port, Alesmisth, Olafbrikken, Nogne, Thirsty Dog, Russian River, and other special stuff that you canít even think about getting in this area from a store. I didnít get a chance to eat, but the bar and restaurant look nice and had a really nice selection of beer on draft. Do yourself a big favor and stop by!!!

Matt Capone is a true publican, he like Scoats of Grey Lodge will go out of his way to find sought after beers for people, and his goal is to keep his customers happy at all costs. In terms of ambiance/atmosphere, the best thing about Caponeís is the polarity of the two types of regulars: beer geeks sitting side by side with the old-head locals, and all of the intermingling and ícraicí to be had. I found eating in the restaurant dining rooms to be a particularly charming experience; the lighting is sexy, the food presentation is classy and the room is nicely decorated especially the colored tiles. Plus it is clean. The food menu is all over the place; some choices unremarkable and others are far-reaching, but what you get can be spectacular (like the crab legs and the chilean sea bass dinner specials Yummy!), plus there are some creative side dish ideas. I like the smaller portion sizes and Iím optimistic about the menu ironing out its quirks and finding a streamlined place among the high e

How the hell have I not rated this before? This is by far my favorite place to stop in and pick up some beer. Matt (the owner) always has a new selection of extremely rare beers for sale in the back of the restaurant for sale. He can pretty much get anything you want, just let him know. He always tries to make his customers happy which is great. I have picked up some crazy RR stuff, Bells, Alesmith, Great Lakes, JP, DFH, Stoudts BA shit, Pannepot, Stille Nacht Reserva (I freakin left some on the shelf cuz he has so many!!!) other de dolle SR, Nogne, Olfabrikken, Cantillon (had st lamvinus on tap last time I was there), lost abbey, duck rabbit, highland, terrapin, dominion, east end, and a shitload of other rediculous stuff. It is so much fun going here, that I have to go everytime I come to PA now. Wings were damn good too. Matt rocks!
