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. Capone’s 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 Capone’s 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 can’t think of another place that can match them in this regard.

So, this is the famous Capones? The service was mostly cougars hitting on young guys. I watched one waitress who was battling a foamy keg pour beer into a second glass and then decant from one to the other, using her finger (unwashed after handling money) to hold the foam back. Wow! The food was standard pub food, nothing special. I finished up and walked around back to check out this special beer store, and found a 10 x 10 cramped room with a few bottles, nothing particularly special - maybe I am jaded.

Ambiance - restaurant bar side is nice, not out of this world. Not the sexiest location either, but it’s good Service - wait staff is very nice, store guy is so-so. Selection - they do have some stuff that is vintage, and some odd-ball stuff, but nothing I can’t find anywhere else. It’s overrated honestly. Food - is very good, portions are a nice size Value - somethings in the bottle store are a little over market value. A nice place, not off the wall though.

Excellent craft beer bar! One of the best tap selections around. Great freindly staff. Small bottle shop off the back with excellent selection.

Solid outing during the Black Friday event. The special line-up aside, the reputation of this place is well deserved. Wait staff was friendly and attentive. Food was decent and as expected for the type of place. Bottle shop was thoughtfully-cultivated. It was like being in someone else’s cellar. The prices are high but not unexpected. Great experience.

I was only in Norristown for the night, but Capone’s was a great place to stop. Enjoyed an Ithaca Flower Power and some food. Bottle shop in the back was a little disappointing, but I think it had more to do with what I was in the mood for than their selection.

The renown Capones Restaurant didn’t disappoint during the RBSG. Over 20 taps of carefully selected beers, no turkey there. An extensive bottle list. Large bar to sit around. The place itself looks like an old semi-classy restaurant that manages to keep a true pub atmosphere. A bottle shop in the back where you can buy things to go. Again the bottle shop is small (VERY SMALL) but the selection is carefully selected and you may come across a gem or two. I did. Prices (especially at the bottle shop) are a bit stiff but PA beer bars in general are the not very cheap. A place I’d really like to go back to but that may not happen because this place is not super accessible unless you drive there. But with a beer selection like this, I just cannot take the car to such a bar.

Combination bottle shop/restaurant/tap house..bottle shop has a wealth of variety and rarities..singles.packs were available with a good selection of bombers as well..space is not big in shop but there is room to browse around..Matt is friendly and helpful and willing to offer quality recommendations..ate at bar for lunch..liked the sampler option as they had over 30 drafts which they are willing to do growlers for as well.draft list was solid..only downside I didn’t notice any prices on beer menu..sampled some pretty tasty grilled chicken fingers and roast beef sandwich..food was good as well..nicely prepared simple tavern offerings..inside feel is not really your typical pub style..but they don’t call themselves a pub/gastropub..well worth a visit..

Rating is primarily about the bottle shop. Eaten there once and the food was above average. Beer selection was excellent and from regularly watching their tap list I know they commonly get rare beers such as PTY and KBS. Servers were older females with little knowledge of craft beer. Bottle shop is fantastic. They get every beer you can think of, which is very deceiving considering how small it is. Only slight downside is pricing. If another place has a beer, it's probably cheaper, but the majority of places don't even have the beers you see at Capones so pricing is a trade off. Owner of place is very knowledgeable and provides great service. Really nice guy. Love going to this place!!

Meh. I came in through the store side and took a look at what they had first. Decent selection but prices were higher than The Beer Store. The restaurant itself is connected to the store and accessible from there. Long bar with lots of patrons. Nice mix of crowd from old to young and beers fans ranging from craft to Miller Lite drinkers. Friendly staff. Menu is ok and contains mostly fried bar food or sandwiched. Had the double dip wings and chicken sandwich (both were average). Overall, this was not worth the "hype" in my opinion. I would have rather gone to Tired Hands.
