This place rocks. Jae (aka Tedge), the "head beer guy", his awesome official title, is super friendly and is getting new stuff in every week. He and his brother, Jason, man the beer section which is situated in the back of a convenience store. They are super helpful and very friendly- they are happy to talk beer with you all day. They know their stuff. While it is not a very big beer section, it packs a big punch with a great selection. They have a ton of craft beers, and I use that term far less loosely than many people. Russian river sours, Cascade sours, less common Bruery shelf beers, Lost Abbey, Deschutes, and so on. They post to facebook whenever they get in something rarer (consecration, temptation, KBS, etc), and sometimes they have reserves on facebook too.
I consider this place a well-kept secret because overall they have the best prices of any bottle shop in philly, they constantly get new things in, and they have the best staff of any place Iíve been. They have a kegerator with 1 beer on tap and do growler fills as well.
Bottom line- this is my favorite bottle shop in Philly.
