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.

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.

After bouncing around between Foodery, State Line and NBD NYC i wasnít expecting to see many different offerings. Went in for the BA Fat Dog, which they had. Abominable too! As others have commented: Alesmith, Great Lakes, Jolly Pumpkins, De Dolle Oerbier & Stille Nacht Reservas, Southamptons, Southern Tier and some cool western PA micros. Not a vast selection but focus seems to be on quality. Fewer mediocre bottles to sort through. Prices very good for PA. Matt knew his stuff and if he didnít have something it was likely coming in soon. I was so blown away that i couldnít even remember most of the upcoming tap selections. Not a problem as Matt sends out regular updates via email. Get on his list. Gotta regroup and head back soon.

What a find! Thereís nothing like the bottle selection this place puts out. Always changing, also. Sometimes Alesmith or Moylans, other times Hoppiní Frog or Great Lakes. Matt has the connections. He is very willing to talk to you about his stock and what else he might get, too. Prices are all clearly marked. He has a lot of sixers, but heís willing to split out anything (maybe on a bigger order) Iíd say heís generally less than Philly bottle shops, price-wise. (RR Damnation - $9, for example) But the hard to get stuff can be a little more. Youíve gotta talk to Matt when you go. Tell him youíre from ratebeer. He might have something under the shelf for the connoisseur. Food was very good. Top notch beers on tap. Even Russian River sometimes!

Nice gem in the rough. Lots singles (for PA) or some hard to get stuff. Matt is always looking for new beers too. Only been to the bottle shop. Updated for food. Been here many times and will continue to return. Updated...one of my favorite spots and Matt is the Man...

Stopped by the bottle shop last month, and returned for lunch yesterday. Retail shop is top notch, with numerous brands (Alesmith, Great Lakes, Founders) that arenít available elsewhere in this area. Prices are much less than in Center City. Staff was very friendly. My meal was very good, and being able to enjoy my food with a pint of Pliny the Elder made it even better. Unfortunately, this area is exempt from the Philly smoking ban, but otherwise this place is amazing. Highly Recommended. Addendum 8/07: my initial review was in 1/2007. In the past 7 months Iíve been back numerous times for food and to pick up rarities in the bottle shop. They put on great monthly draft promos, which are among the top events in the Philly area. Matt Capone is very passionate about great beer, plus heís one of the nicest guys in the business.

I have been to Caponeís quite a number of times but only for the bottle shop. Stopped in for dinner last night so I figure it is about time to post my review. I will start with the bottle shop. Wow...what a find! I never knew there was a bottle shop this good only 15 minutes from my house. The first time I stopped in here the owner Matt talked to me for at least a half hour about the new beers he got in and he also sent me away with a few free goodies. Great selection of american craft beer, Belgians, other imports in addition to your typical American six packs (coors, miller, bud). Current American Craft brews include Alesmith, Founders, Moylans, Hoppin Frog, DFH, Stoudts, Magic Hat, Allagash and may more! Prices are reasonable although have been increasing over the past month or two (which is understandable...this is a business afterall). As for the restaurant. I got the Veal Parm and it was excellent. My wife got the Chicken Parm and really enjoyed hers as well. Meal came with bread and a soup/salad. They also had a great desert tray. Tap selection included Ramstein Winter Wheat, Pliny the Elder, Stone Double Bastard in addition to 6 to 8 others. They do growler fills! Matt also does a great job of keeping a current list of what he has on tap so that patrons donít have to rely on their server to remember the constantly rotating tap list.

Really nice selection for PA. Can buy singles, and the service is fantastic. Every time iíve been in, Iíve been able to talk to the owner or his brother. Highly recommended.
