Stopped in here earlier this week before going to Tired Hands.
Surprisingly big for its location. Small retail area in the front, large row of coolers on the left and tons of loose bottles and warm six packs on the right. A small bar area located in the back is packed with people having a beer and getting growlers filled. A nice inviting atmosphere to have a beer or just pick up some to go.
Quality seemed to be pretty good. Service was good, I was asked if I needed help twice in my short time in the store. Prices seemed to be up and down. Most where priced right where they should be but $25+ for a 750ml of Tilquin is crazy, especially when I had just seen it for $18 at a different shop not two hours before. Prices aside the selection was pretty good. They had some RR, Belgians, and all the other usual suspects you would expect from a philly area bottle shop.
Overall a pretty nice bottle shop. I will probably stop in again when I am going to Tired Hands, it is only a block away after all.
Located a block from Tired Hands and a few doors down from Iron Hill so handy if killing some time before THBC opens their doors. A good selection of singles and sixers to go or grab a bottle/can to open at the back bar. Four draft lines at the bar too. Friendly and helpful staff.
Stopped in before a Tired Hands visit. They allow mix six packs but without any type of mix six discount. Every bottle is individually priced and it can add up with the quickness. I got two mix Ėa- six and it cost me $40.00. Yeah, a little high donít ya think???
The selection is very good but you are going to pay for it. Not sure if I will return again.
Just a block from Tired Hands and a worthy stop on a swing through Ardmore. Selection isnít enormous but is impressive for the buildingís small footprint and did have about twenty things I havenít ever seen in NJ or DE or MD distribution, e.g. Duck Rabbit, the smaller Straffe Hendrik bottles, some smaller in-state crafties, etc. (maybe I should shop in PA more often!). Half the inventory in sixers and the other have as singles in coolers. Thereís a spare room bar/small food area in the back, which seemed popular. Service was excellent, both for me and for others. Prices are high, generally twice as much as Iím used to paying; still, if this is the paradigm solution to opening up PAís retarded alcohol laws, well, itís a big step forward.
Cool bottle shop! Small bar in the back where you can purchase a pint and walk around. Not a huge store, but a great selection of single 12oz bottles and cans in the fridge, and a large wall of six packs and larger bottles on the shelf. Being from NJ itís cool to see new beers and beers Ive wanted to try just sitting on the shelf in another store in another state. Def worth stopping in. I will be revisiting.
Right behind Tired Hands, big selection, tons of cold beer, you can buy beer and drink it there, they have a draft area as well. There are some deals to be had but mostly a standard lineup, nothing too crazy. I finally picked up a BA Gonzo. Nice staff.
Very organized and clean shop...lots of bottles and six packs. Good mix of cold and room temp. All of the standard PA craft offerings and some extra...a few tougher to find bottles. Little bar in the back has four drafts or so and hotdogs...little tv. Prices were average to high...very high on the nicest bottles.
On the plus side this place is just a few minutes from my house, pretty friendly/knowledgeable staff, and you can buy six-packs and individual bottles which is a rarity in PA. On the enormously negative side, the prices here are outrageous. I get that I might have to pay a bit for the convenience of buying one bottle at a time versus a full case, but these prices are consistently 20% higher than Iíve seen in Philly.
wow...I can get a sx-pack of Victoryís Hop Devil IPA for only $16.95!? And to wash it down I can get a weak oscar meyer hot-dog on a soggy bun for $4?! Where have you been all my life, Bottle Shoppe...
The only positive thing I can say about this establishment is that the staff are generally knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful. But I will absolutely never pay $15.95 for a sixer of Gaffel, and their $7.75 bottle of Peeper is an insult to the craft. This place is not doing the perception of the craft beer industry any favors; seems like some limpid mainline businessman caught wind of "this micro brewery fad" and saw a big olí dollar sign attached to it.
