Great bottle shop! Excellent selection, with new beer coming in every week. The staff know their beer and are happy to offer suggestions. On top of that, they know how to treat a regular! The pizza in the restaurant is quality as well!
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.
i wish it didn’t take me a half hour to get to this place! i would certainly be here more often if that were the case. cheesesteaks, pizzas, and beer. i can’t really ask for much more. the beer selection is not easily matched and everyone behind the counter knows what they’re talking about. with 20+ taps, being able to sample is a must... and they’re glad to help out! i’ve heard people complain about the mix-a-six prices, but that’s easily offset by the cheap food prices. i don’t think the bottle prices are any more than other shops in the area. right on par with a place like capone’s. i recommend you stop in if you’ve never been, you won’t regret it.
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!
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.

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..

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.
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!
