Beer selection was good - had a few gems squirreled away. Prices were outrageously high. Had a couple bottles picked out and then didnít buy them - Oh yeah, they donít put the prices on the beers. You wonít know until they ring you up. Classic.

Great to see a lot of Lost Abbey stuff here and some Russian River and Belgians I canít get in Washington D.C. very easily. Small and cramped with lots of beer fridges. Annoying that nothing is priced, because most of what you want tends to be overpriced. There arenít a lot of beer store options in Philly though and this still manages to be pretty good. Then again, Iím comparing it to D.C. and Ontario before that.

Stopped in here a few days ago while in the area for an event. Figured it was only a few blocks away, might as well check it out.

Atmosphere was just like others have mentioned, it is pretty much a cross between a corner bodega and a bottle shop. It is really cramped and you have to walk around numerous objects to get anywhere. Quality was ok, nothing amazing, some of the bottles looked pretty old. Service was pretty good, I had two different people ask if I needed any help. Selection was decent for the size of the space but nothing amazing. Only one or two things I would have gotten had the prices been reasonable, which they certainly were not.

Overall an ok bottle shop in the heart of the city. If I lived in the area I might check it out every now and then to see what they have but I doubt I will return.

A small (in size) beer store in the lively part of Philly, walking distance from many best Phillyís best watering holes. Very small in size, 20 people in this tiny store an youíre stepping on each otherís toes. But they crammed more cool beers than most beer stores 3 times its size. Americans and imports including a bunch of limited offerings you expect to only find in larger more Ďtypicalí beer stores. This is PA and as with most PA beer stores (especially those in the cites) this ainít cheap. Not sure what other options there is downtown Philly but this one was good enough for me, I bought more things than I could carry. Also a deli selection for your beer munchies.

Stopped by on the look out for obscure Countries and States and was not disappointed - although the chaotic arrangement made it hard to find anything. The range seemed to be extensive, although I didnít see anything obscure in the Belgian and British sections.

Pretty sick beer store in downtown Philly. Pretty small area but they pack a lot of big names like BFM, Lost Abbey, Alesmith, Cantillon, 3 Fonteinen, etc. Even found some 50/50 Eclipse there. Anyhow, the prices were high, but lower than I expected in a lot of cases. Some of the beers they get you wonder how they could ever be distributed. The guys were helpful, it was a nice shopping experience.

Very good selection, with rarities. they sel mixed six-packs. the problems are that the preces are really high, and to know the price of a bottle you need to look at a single catalogue in a table.

Stopped in to browse and wound up spending nearly $100 on six bottles...they do a 10% discount on a mixed sixer. Cramped little store so browsing is tight. Nice selection of pretty standard crafts but theres a handful of hidden gems as well. The staff seems pretty knowledgeable...prices are fair to high. Lots of snacks available here including a full lineup of ritter sports! Didnt endulge in any of the real food though.

Its not an attractive place, but they pack in quite a few good beers into it! Prices are a bit high, but consistent to Philly.
