This is the place to go south of Philly. A great bottle selection of what they say is a thousand and that’s what it looks like. The tap selection is top notch, about 20 with a constantly changing list. The food in the restaurant is very good. The guys in the beer garden are great, very friendly and knowledgeable. Samples are always offered. he prices are very reasonable. Not easy to get to but worth the effort.

Visited for a late lunch on a Monday. This is really 3 places in one, with the restaurant space and the macro beer space up front and the craft beer “garden” around the corner. I ate lunch in the restaurant space, which is laid out Diner style with ~ 10 bar stools, and many booths and tables spread about. There were 24 or so taps, great selection of regional and national craft beers. Each beer was offered draft or via growler to go. They also sold a wide variety of empty growlers from a cheap 32 oz medicine bottle to a fancy Brauler. I had a mini pizza which was fresh and tasty, the cheese steaks also looked solid. Next to the restaurant is a small macro beer, which there is no reason to visit. You need to walk around the corner to access the “Beer Garden” which has a great selection of craft in the coolers, a small 3 or 4 seat bar, and a few well chosen taps. The place is cramped, though everyone in it was in a great mood so it was a lot of fun. Overall experience is great.
82 = ★★★½ (Solid place, near the top of the list for locals and visitors)
I only use the total score, not the component parts.
Small place and can be overcrowded. Fantastic selection. Good service in the garden (not so good in the restaurant). Food ranges from bad to amazing. A bit overpriced for most bottles, but a great go-to if you want to try something rare!

Quite impressive selection of bottles and draft..staff is helpful and willing to be honest and guide one into what are solid selections to try..have some rarities that are worth seeking out..only real issue is fairly high prices..but it is worth it for the most part for singles..most bombers are way overpriced...didn’t try food..Can get growlers filled as well..
Just bought from the beer store side. Did not eat in the restaurant. Incredible selection! Higher prices than I am used to in GA but lots of stuff I’ve never seen before. Everything is available in singles. Also have draft for on site consumption and to go in growlers but I was in a hurray and did not pay very clise attention to the selection.
An awesome little place to buy beer. The selection is great, and the people working there are helpful and knowledgable. I didn’t try any food, but it’s nice that there are some taps so you can drink while shopping.
