Lightning fast visit with a local friend, as we scored some pie for his boy. Friendly, family-oriented vibe to the place. I didn’t sample the food myself, but was assured that it was quite tasty. Bottle shop offerings looked impressive, without the range of rarities you can find at Capone’s but with perhaps a wider gathering of what’s available via distro in PA. Nice, if relatively limited range of taps and growlers to go, of which we picked up two tasty ones. I look forward to going back next time I’m in the area. UPDATE: bumping my score up after more time in the bottle shop. Awesome place.

The best bottle shop in the Philly area--and that is saying something. A comprehensive selection that is constantly growing and being restocked. Tim and Dan run a great spot where you can get growlers filled, try samples, and even have a glass or two along with some pizza. The prices are better on most and not far off on others. If you haven’t been you should stop in... it just might become a regular stop.

I can’t speak for the food, but it’s worth a stop if you are in the area for the bottle selection. They have a good selection of stuff from PA plus some harder to get breweries like Cigar City, Port Brewing, Lost Abbey, Hair of the Dog, and Alesmith. Unfortunately they aren’t too kind on the wallet. Expect a fairly substantial mark up. If you have some noteworthy trade fodder, apparently the owner has a shelf of goodies available for trade only. The staff was very helpful and willing to give samples of what they had on tap too.

It’s a pizza joint, a busy pizza joint! It kinda has a weird ambiance if you are looking mainly for a place to drink a beer, but if you want pizza, beer and a family atmosphere, this is it. It has the feel of an old school dinner, and should not be considered a bar even though it has numerous taps. It’s a pizza joint! Food is that of a pizza joint, pizza and spaghetti. Value for mone, is good. Now onto the good stuff! Staff are friendly and attentive. Beer selection is great and good value. Great pizza and an all you can eat at 6.95 who can beat that? Bootle shop is amazing with a great selection and great knowledgable staff. If you want good pizza, good beer, friendly service and a great 6er to go this is your place.

The Beer Garden is a very small room behind the pizza shop. One wall is fridges for individual bottles, and the spouts for growlers are in the back. As a local, my experience is that Pinoccio’s food is mediocre at best, and you’re better off getting your pizza almost anywhere else in town. The parking situation is terrible here. On the upside, the staff at the Beer Garden are extremely friendly and knowledgeable, and were able to answer my questions better than anywhere else I’ve been. The selection here is incredible, and a sign boasts 800 kinds of beer. Pennsylvania’s ridiculous alcohol laws make it almost impossible to buy individual bottles, so this place is a treasure trove of beers you can’t find anywhere else in PA. Unfortunately, the prices are at least 20-30% higher here than if you take a short drive to DE. Very expensive. This is a good place for Pennsylvanian’s to get those hard-to-find treasures and answers to questions, but at a high premium price.

Stopped in while visiting family in South Philly. Super nice and knowledgeable staff. Very good selection of beer. Majority of their beer is already in a cooler and I’m a fan of keeping them on a shelf. If you are in the area, they have an excellent selection. Wish I had time to have a slice and enjoy what they had on tap.

This place is awesome! A little pricey, but there is nowhere else in delco that you can get such an awesome selection and buy singles. I saw beers here that I have not seen anywhere else in PA, DE, or MD. They are doing a fantastic job, and although today was my first visit, I will be back again for sure!

Visited a couple times now... I sat at the bar, looks like there are twenty taps or so, easy to find something that will make you happy. Kind of reminded me of a dinner, typical pizza place. Pizza is tasty. Only 8 or so bar seat but good amount of tables available. Family friendly... The actual bottle shop is what most impressed me. Andrew/joe (employees) were very helpful and knowledgable... Lots of west coast goodies that I cant find in the DE/MD area and growlers! Growlers are a good price but bottles are expensive.

Twenty taps, growler fills and over 800 bottles of beers and counting would be enough to peak any BM’s interest. Add to that some extremely knowledgeable, patient staff who are fun and VERY generous of their time, etc. and you have a "don’t miss" locale. That’s what Pinocchio’s Beer Garden has become for me and should be for you. Tim, Dan, and Trey have taken so much time - to educate without attitude, to help me find things, and just generally do anything they can to help me enjoy craft beers. They are true "beer advocates."
Pinocchio’s Beer Garden is a small place attached to their restaurant. It is not uncomfortable and the restaurant is next door if you want to sit, etc. Another great aspect of the place is their effort to keep their clientele informed. They maintain a mailing list, facebook and tweeter updates and a fully searchable list of their beers on their website. I can only imagine how much DAILY work is required to keep these current. Parking is sometimes a problem and the traffic in Media can be annoying, but once you are in, you’ll be back again and again.

Used to get pizza from here all the time when I worked in Media, its good stuff! The staff always had a love for different beers so I was glad to see the new store and although it is a small space it is packed and nicely organized. The wall is lined with coolers packed with tons of micro brews and imports. They also have shelving that is not cold with a lot of hard to find bottles. The website is getting more and more organized, so if your in delco this is a great spot to grab beer. The prices were not that bad!
