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!

My current favorite place to buy beer. The first thing that I think of is how friendly the owner, Matt, is. On top of that, the selection is really fantastic, with alot of breweries from the Midwest that most Mid-Atlantic distributors donít carry (Great Lakes, Founders, Oskar Blues, etc). Iíve never been to the restaurant portion, so Iím basing the "ambience" and "service" just from the bottleshop itself. Who needs ambience in a bottleshop? As long as I can navigate around the place and not put myself in physical danger, Iím happy. The prices are good on certain things, and moderately good on others. Overall very fair prices (hopefully they donít continue to raise). The great thing about Caponeís is really the fact that the owner will go out of his way to obtain beers that other distributors donít have, and to take the time to listen to (and follow) peopleís suggestions. As long as the prices stay fair, Iíll continue to shop here for as long as Iím into good beer.

Have visited Caponeís only twice. The first time was only to shop at the bottle store, the second time was for lunch and to shop at the bottle store. Food was good, service was friendly without being overbearing (a major pet peeve of mine). Only negative with lunch was the man sitting next to me at the bar, smoking the most foul-smelling cigar on earth. I enjoy cigars myself, but this thing was unbearable. The bottle shop in the rear is a great find. Excellent selection! Lots of top-notch beers crammed into not a lot of floor space. Owner was present both times and helpful both times. Seems willing to go the extra mile to provide his customers with the beers they want. I highly recommend this place!

Had dinner with another couple there last night and the food was awesome, salads, sandwiches, wings, crab cakes. Everyone at our table was happy and full with leftovers to take home. The tap beer selection was awesome but our server had not a clue about beers and seemed quite put off when I asked for a taste or 2 of the selections. I was quite surprised and disappointed at that so I felt I had to take a point or 2 off the service due to that issue. After dinner we went to the bottle shop, and let me tell you, I was like a kid in a candy store! Iíve never seen such a great selection and the prices were remarkable I scored the lasst 2 bottles of í06 WWS for $9/ea. How bout a 4pk of Old Rasuptin for $8 and a 4pk of Great Lakes Blackout Stout for $13. I got to meet Matt at the takeout and he couldnít have been more friendly or accommodating or apologetic for the servers lack of knowledge and willingness with the samples. Overall Iíd go back here again in a heart beat. For a meal, Iíd definitely sit at the bar next time though.

I cannot believe I used about .5 miles up the street and never new about this selection! This is a true gem for Pennsylvanians. The ability to buy singles is awesome and the selection is top-notch! Matt is very friendly, very accomodating and really into beer! I highly recommend a visit!

*ONLY VISITED THE BOTTLE SHOP* Caponeís bottle shop is one of the best I have seen in Pennsylvania. It has an eclectic selection of both American and Belgian products. The existence of Great Lakes brewery products was quite impressive. Even the Foodery in Philly does not have anything from Great Lakes. The owner/manager, Matt, was overwhelmingly pleasant and helpful. It is forthrightly evident he goes out of his way to appease his patrons. Matt admits traveling far and wide to seek out some of the rarest brews. Additionally, he will break down any six packs into singles, unlike Sharkies bottle shop in State College. Though the selection is not quite as deep as some places I have visited, there are really no "junk, filler" bottles to be found. Everything in there is top notch and/or a "greatest hit" of the respected brewery. I saw an on-tap listing while I was there too -- very impressive. Capones will fill growlers if you bring them in. Sometime soon I would like to return with some of my boys and check out the restaurant. With no real decent bottle shops in the Reading area, Capones is most certainly worth the drive.

Finally made it in after so many people recommended it. Stopped in for Lunch. Great selection on draft. Food was great. Staff was very friendly and helpful, hooked us up and went out of their way to please my wifeís and I stay there. Matt came out to talk to me and made some recommendations. Stopped over in the bottle shop and found a really nice selection. Cantillon, Nogne ō, Three Floyds, Bellís, Great Lakes, De Dolle. Whats nice about the place is there are price stickers on everything, something most bottle shops lack. Will be stopping by quite frequently. Ask for Matt when you go.

markgugs  (1) Wood Ridge, New Jersey | February 19, 2007
Iíve now been to Caponeís twice, once for a Russian River tasting/dinner evening, and once just to stop in the beer store to shoot the breeze with Matt. BOTH experiences were tremendous. In addition to the food being quite good, the waitstaff & service was phenomenal. I had to double-check that I was still in the northeastern U.S., since everyone was so darned friendly. In the bar area, you can still smoke, itís a very large bar, and you can be 100% assured that Matt will have anywhere from 8-12 stupendous, quality microbrews on tap at any given time. To give you an idea, Iíve had Troegs Nugget Nectar, Troegs Mad Elf, Russian River Pliny the Elder, Ramstein Winter Wheat, East End Blackstrap Stout, and more. Awesome. And now for my favorite part of Caponeís, Mattís singles, bombers, six-pack, and case packaged goods heaven next door. He keeps an ample amount of stuff both warm and cold, and so many great beers from all corners of the globe itís hard to describe. I single-handedly knocked off half my wish list shopping there. Just one word of caution: BRING CASH, as they do not take credit cards in the beer store (they do in the restaurant). There is an ATM on premises, btw. I canít recommend Caponeís enough, itís easy to get to (on the Germantown Pike just up the road from 476), and the selection & service will keep me coming back. Tell Matt RateBeer sent you!

pineypower  (27) Ocean County , New Jersey | February 12, 2007| Updated January 23, 2008
Went here because of much praise from the site and from other people I know living in the area. first mistake is I walked in the restaurant first, which turned out ok because I took home a nice growler. Selection in the beer store part is very extensive with many beers Iíve never seen in the area. Picked up a Great Lakes, Two Brothers and they also had some nice Belgian beers also. Matt wasnít there, but the guy in the beer store and the lady in the restaurant were both friendly, the burger lives up to the hype, I definitely recommend it. Matt is also a nice guy willing to talk beer.

I went here yesterday, and was in beer heaven for over half an hour. Matt stocks an amazing array of micros from all over the world, with the state of California nicely represented as well. I picked up a smattering of barleywines, Impy IPAs, and a lot of California offerings. You will easily find several dozen great beers here that you havenít had. I plan on making bi-weekly trips. Matt was very helpful, accommodating, and knowledgable about beer. Quite simply, Matt stocks beers that you wonít find anywhere else in PA or the Northeast ( I never have) and has the knowledge to know what he is doing, which is awesome when you think about it. Food is great, and now with 32 gtaps, the tap list here is as good as any you will EVER find. Matt keeps improving, and this place keeps packing them in so tight on event days that itís hard to move.

whaleman  (25) North Wales, Pennsylvania | February 3, 2007| Updated February 23, 2007
Great place! Better than expected even. I EASILY filled a case with highly sought out singles, including Pannepot, Russian River/Avery Collaboration and a couple of De Dolle Reservas. Iíll be returning regularly. Other locals might as well have ceased to exist (as long as Caponeís keeps their prices competitive). Excellent tap selection too, the food was good, and service was very friendly. The top bottle shop in the region. Varied and interesting draught beers have included Russian River, Cantillon, Allagash, Old Rasputin, East End and Great Divide. Hunting for great beer has become like shooting fish in a barrel.
