Free parking on the side. Small bottle shop with high end selection. Please note this place does not take Discover. Had to wait for the guy to check me out even though I was the only one there. Selection is limited in quantity, but is high in quality. Pricing was going rate.
Visited on a busy Friday night, plenty of parking and short wait for a booth. The place is pleasantly informal, with a simple food menu plus nightly specials. Scallop small plate special was fine. Service was attentive and friendly. I plan to return, largely due to the fantastic beer selection.
Nettes Restaurant in den Vororten von Philadephia. Schöne Auswahl an Bieren, lokale und Ostküste. Bedienung war leider nicht besonders kenntnisreich, der gelobte Besitzer war wohl nicht vor Ort. Burger war überdurchschnittlich, Preise okay!
Awesome place in the burbs of Philly. Really seems like you walked into a scene from the Sopranos with the characters and people here. Friendly staff, and great selection of world class beer. Their store is also something else, and you can sip beer on tap and peruse. They happened to have some Crusher cans in there when I arrived and copped the last one when the guy said he had one left. Some really old vintage stuff here as well.
Visited Capone’s last week. Very nice craft beer bar with some "dive" vibes. Met owner Matt Capone who seems to know a LOT about craft beers and history of all the craft beer culture in USA. Thanks for the last Singlecut Bon Bon IIPA Matt! Small bottleshop behind bar was interesting. Didn’t try any food. Location is little bit of problematic for European travellers because it is practically impossible to get there by public transport. Luckily I had driver with me for my session.
This place should be reviewed as bar/restaurant and a store.
As the bar it wasn’t the successful. 35 beers on tap, but only one of real interest to try, Rodenbach Alexander. The rest were easily and commonly available. So that was pretty disappointing. The food was all bar food, so I wasn’t really thrilled to eat there. Some fried pickles were nice.
The beer store was pretty nice with a varied selection. Sadly, I just missed Matt, who seems like he would have been great to talk. The person that helped me was nice but didn’t know a whole lot so it made the experience less than what I was hoping for. I’m guessing there is a lot of rare stuff but you gotta come when Matt is there and be on his list. I still did get a couple rarer PA and VA ticks. Prices are very high.
Not worth coming out of you way to hi up, but if I was local I’d frequent.
Definite diner vibe, dark. Many taps, but nothing particularly unusual or inviting. Ended up not making any purchase in the restaurant area, as I did not want ticks for ticks sake and I wasn’t hungry. Then stopped by the bottle shop, staffed by a curmudgeonly but friendly shopkeeper. Lots of nooks and crannies, so keep your eyes peeled. Lots of rare and unusual stuff. Prices are staggeringly high. I assume some of this is because of PA law, but still more expensive than any other place I’ve seen in PA. Generally $3.50 or more for any single. Parking was ample.
Pretty solid place on a major road with plenty of parking in front and on the side. Bar area as you enter is nicely decored with plenty of seating. Restaurant area behind looked pretty nice as well. I did not check the bottle list, although I should have. Tap list was pretty good, although there was a bit of a focus on west coast stuff. I can see that being attractive to the locals, but being FROM the west coast I didnt really need Knee Deep and Lost Abbey ticks. I ordered a flight of four and my bill was like $15, which seems a bit crazy to me. There is also a bottle shop in the back. Selection is fair, but the prices on the more unusual bottles are kinda crazy expensive. $18 for a World Wide Stout?? Otherwise, nice place.
I’d heard and read about this place for some time...and had wanted to visit...had a chance recently to detour a bit on a drive from VA back to NJ. I had heard the food was hearty but not special...but the beer and people were great. Turned out to be true on all accounts. Nonetheless I had a great surprise upon arriving on a Sunday night. Turned out it was Lost Abbey/Port Brewing night...which in and of itself would have made the trip here great...but it gets better...being the start of Philly beer week...I lucked into a visit from the whole Lost Abbey/Port Brewing crew. That meant I got to meet the man himself...Tomme Arthur! Got a picture too...thanks to their marketing manager Adam who I got to talk and drink with. Of course I was drinking a ton of rare and less common Lost Abbey/Port Brewing beers (a little heaver on the Abbey side). So of course I had a great adventure...and fantastic visit. Getting back to Capone’s itself though...like I said up top...really great beers...fun place with good if not great ambiance...great staff...food maybe a bit ordinary...but nothing bad. This is a place I would definitely visit again...especially on a special night like a tap takeover...but I don’t think I’d visit often...too many other better places to explore.
